Theatre Royal Glasgow
Take a look inside!
The new foyers of Theatre Royal Glasgow are open to the public from 10am Monday to Saturday. Come and have a look at our fantastic new facilities.
There’s a new daytime opening Box Office from 10am-6pm Monday-Saturday for ticket sales for any show at Theatre Royal or King’s Theatre Glasgow.
At our new café – Vanilla Black at the Theatre – you can enjoy a range of refreshments from coffee and cakes to soup, sandwiches, salads and paninis. The café is open 10am-5pm, Monday-Saturday, and longer on performance nights. Complimentary wi-fi is available for cafe-users.
As you can see from the photos, the new building itself is eye-catching, and worth a visit in its own right. Try taking one of the new lifts up to the top floor for a peek through the new viewing gallery at Balcony level, which looks into the spectacular auditorium. While you’re there, check out the roof terrace offering high level views of the city and all the way to the Campsie Fells.
As you wind your way back down the spiral staircase, stop at some of the window bays, each with its own a unique ‘postcard view’ of Glasgow, or explore the theatre’s heritage on one of the interactive touchscreens.
A new heritage exhibition area, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, is also open. Housed in the ‘old’ foyers on Hope Street, the permanent display looks at some of the famous performers and performances to have graced the theatre’s stage, and the first in a series of changing displays features the opera Madama Butterfly.
