Visitors to Glasgow will not be disappointed with the wide array of theatres and stage performances that take place annually. Glasgow’s original city centre theatres were constructed in the Victorian period such as The Kings’s, The Theatre Royal and The Pavilion, each of them retaining their victorian opulence and grandeur. Other venues in the city are more recent additions to Glasgow’s Theatre Scene: The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, by far the largest; The Citizens; The Arches and The Tron, set in the neo-gothic Old Tron Church at Glasgow Cross.
Glasgow’s theatres are not only venues that play host to theatrical performances, theatres such as The Arches and The Tron are renowned for hosting live music and DJs until the small hours. Licenced bar facilities are available at each venue.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall hosts the largest events in Glasgow’s performing arts, including Celtic Connections and high-profile performances in classical music, comedy and drama. Smaller theatres can be found in other areas of the City, particularly the South Side and West End, namely The Tramway, Cottiers and The Mitchell amongst others.
Stage productions and performances are well publicised and seats can be easily booked in advance online or by telephoning box offices direct. Glasgow’s Theatre’s are all accessible by public transport, however, city centre and West End venues are within walking distance from Smith’s Hotel.
