UWS is developing a closer and closer creative working partnership with the the Gaiety and we were delighted to hold our degree show here. With the expansion of our teaching next year to include Technical Theatre and Musical Theatre, Ayr’s local theatre will become an integral part of the delivery of our courses. The fantastic facilities in the Gaiety complement our state of the art TV and Film studios at our new campus. Events like this degree show are a great way of building ever stronger links between the town and the university.
