The Weatherfield Majestic was a theatre/club specialising mainly in variety acts. Alec Gilroy honed his craft as a talent scout there, with a job backstage in the 1950s and 60s, supplying everything from bird impersonators to women who tore up telephone books. It was also there that Alec met his future wife, Joyce Crosby, when she assisted her father Harry backstage when he played the musical saw.
Alec continued his rise to the top with a promotion to front of house, but with variety on the wane, the Majestic's fortunes floundered and in 1971 it was closed down and turned into the Alhambra Weatherfield Bingo Hall.
