Charles Bailey Theatre

The main venue for the performing arts in Trail is the beautiful Charles Bailey Theatre. The main theatre hosts concerts, theatre, comedy and more from well-known acts like the Barenaked Ladies and Shawn Hook to smaller emerging talent such as Lisa Nicole.

With seating capacity of 721, the Bailey Theatre has an intimate atmosphere and all seats provide an excellent view of the stage.  For smaller performances, events or meetings, the Muriel Griffiths Room next to the theatre holds 80-100 people. Check the website for a full calendar of scheduled events.

The Theatre Box Office is open Monday to Friday from noon – 4pm, September to June. During July and August, the Box Office is open from Tuesday to Thursday, noon – 4pm. Online Ticketing is available at

The Trail and District Arts Council (TDAC) presents over 50 events annually in the Bailey Theatre including Jazz at the Griff, the Classical Series, Performing Arts Trail and the Teck Family Series, as well as a number of other shows. In the community, TDAC presents Music in the Park at Gyro Park including Night Markets and Monday Cinema screenings at The Royal Theatre. They also work in collaboration with the City of Trail to present a family show for Spooktacular and coordinate the entertainment needs during Silver City Days.

The TDAC is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster the arts in Greater Trail by providing services, grants and resources to its arts, cultural and heritage affiliate organizations. Formed in 1959, TDAC aims to raise awareness of the arts and offer the community a way to experience the diversity that arts and culture have to offer. The Bailey Theatre and Muriel Griffiths Room are also available to rent.

Established in the 1890s, Trail is flanked by the Monashee Mountains to the west and the Selkirk Mountains to the east. A visit to Trail should certainly include a tour of the Trail Museum, the Sports Hall of Memories and the Teck Trail Operations Interpretive Centre – the huge smelter complex at the heart of this small city has been in operation for more than a century.
