If you passed The Gaiety Theatre in Ayr last week, you will have noticed the striking pink ‘mock police tape’ wrapped around the front of the building.

The Ayrshire theatre has joined hundreds of others across the UK in the ‘Missing Live Theatre’ campaign aimed at highlighting the loss of live performance and creative industries during the pandemic.

Ayr Advertiser:

The Gaiety collaborated with Glasgow-based artist Ailsa Kalyanova on the tape design. The tape will remain in place for up to one week before being removed and reused by #scenechange at another theatre.

The Gaiety have been busy during lockdown with their Gaiety Lockdown Channel, providing a ‘Lockdown Season’ in place of their Summer Season that has sadly been cancelled.
