Glasgow Theatres:

    Theatre in GlasgowThe Arches

    The Arches is both an arts receiving and arts production house in the heart of Glasgow. As such, its foremost aim is to provide a programme of arts events which reflects the cultural aspirations and interests of the local Glasgow community. This is an acknowledgement by the Arches of the need to be vital and relevant to the city that it serves. At the same time, Glasgow is a European city with strong international ties and interests. The Arches aims to mirror the city’s cosmopolitan aspirations as well as forging new international links and developing new types of cultural activity...

    Theatre in GlasgowCitizen's Theatre

    One of the leading theatres in Britain, the Glasgow Citizens' Theatre Company was formed in 1943 by a group of Glasgow Citizens including the playwright James Bridie, who became the first President, Dr Tom Honeyman, who became the first Chairman, and the writer Guy McCrone who was the first Managing Director. They first presented their repertoire in the Athenaeum Theatre but moved to the Royal Princess's Theatre (originally opened in 1878 and famous for pantomime, melodrama and the national drama) in the Gorbals in 1945. This building was later renamed the Citizens' Theatre...

    King's Theatre in Glasgow
    The King's, Glasgow is one of Scotland's most historic and significant theatres. The venue opened in 1904 as one of the most brilliant designs of the prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham and has played host to top stars and shows ever since. It is home to possibly the very best Christmas pantomime to be seen in the United Kingdom which over the years has featured the Scottish greats including Stanley Baxter, Jimmy Logan, Rikki Fulton, Jack Milroy, Elaine C Smith and Gerard Kelly. The King's provides Glasgow's flourishing amateur groups with a high profile stage and was the location for the opening ceremony of Glasgow's European City of Culture events in 1990. Above all, it continues to pack in appreciative audiences performance after performance and throughout the year...

    Theatre in GlasgowMitchell Theatre

    Situated behind Europe's largest public reference library, Mitchell Library on Granville Street in the Charing Cross district of Glasgow. The Mitchell Theatre was created within the former St. Andrew's Halls. Built between 1873-7, they suffered a devastating fire in 1962, with only a shell behind the facade remaining. Reconstruction between 1972 and 1980 created the theatre and an extension to the library. The Mitchell theatre complex also includes the Moir Hall...

    Theatre in GlasgowPavilion Theatre

    Defying all the odds, Glasgow's Pavilion regularly purveys variety to this day. All the more remarkable as it is completely unsubsidised and receives no funding from the Scottish Arts Council and kindred bodies whose thoughts and cash are directed at higher cultural activities. It remains the last stronghold of a long music hall tradition in Europe's City of Culture owing everything to a dedicated staff and patrons and nothing to the public purse...

    Theatre Royal in Glasgow
    The Theatre Royal continues to go from strength to strength presenting not only its home company, Scottish Opera, but also Scottish Ballet and other world class arts companies such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre. Successive front of house and backstage developments have ensured the Theatre Royal keeps pace with standards of customer care and technical facilities. A further phase of refurbishment involving redecorating the public areas, replacing seating and carpeting, and, most significantly, a much-needed extension to the orchestra pit, was completed in the summer of 1997. The Theatre Royal had continued to assure its place as one of Scotland’s principal performing venues...
