Architect: Charles Ashworth / C.J. Phipps
Recently given a new glass and steel canopy overhanging a much widened footpath on a mainly pedestrianised street, the Gaiety can now be appreciated properly. A fine facade, by Charles Ashworth, with polychromic bricks and arched doorways mask an amazing auditorium by C.J. Phipps. The shopping centre across the street mimics its polychromatic brickwork.
