The Gaiety Theatre on Harris Promenade in Douglas, originally built as the Marine Pavillion for dancing. it was later extended and the interior was completely transformed by Frank Matcham the eminent theatre architect. The opening of the Gaiety Theatre took place in July 1900. Despite the difficulties of the tourist industry, it remains one of the finest Victorian/Edwardian theatres in existence, thanks to a programme of preservation and restoration by the Isle of Man Government and The Friends of the Gaiety.
