Gaiety Theatre

Authentically restored to it's former glory.

The Gaiety Theatre and Opera House, opposite to the War Memorial on Douglas Promenade, is probably the finest example of the work of Frank Matcham, the celebrated Victorian theatre architect. At one period the continued existence of the theatre was in doubt but it was acquired by the Manx Government and has been sumptuously and authentically restored to its former glory. It is well worth taking in a show if only to wonder at the ornate, gilded splendour of its interior.
