The Bailey Theatre

The main venue for the Performing Arts in Trail is the beautiful Bailey Theatre, with a seating capacity of 719.  For smaller concerts, events or meetings, the Muriel Griffiths Recital room next to the theatre holds 80-100 people.

Both are located in downtown Trail and are available for booking every day of the year except statutory holidays.

The Bailey Theatre seating capacity provides for an intimate atmosphere. All seats provide an excellent view of the stage. As a result, the audience is very appreciative and attentive. We have available parking for buses, vans, U-Hauls and trucks. Our Facilities Manager can arrange for pack-in personnel. We can efficiently meet your technical, rider and promotional requirements.
