Founded in 1857 on the Trongate in Glasgow, Scotland, the Britannia quickly became famed as being the most popular place of amusement in the city and 1500 people would cram themselves onto wooden benches for every show. The audience gained itself a reputation for "leaving no turn unstoned" and over the years the stage saw performances by such greats as Dan Leno, Harry Lauder, Marie Loftus, Charles Coburn, Harry Champion, W. F. Frame and of course, the debut of a sixteen year old Stan Laurel in 1906.
This is the original drawing by Evy Craig from which she created her full colour screen print of Stan and Ollie for "The Greats of Comedy" exhibition which is in Britannia Panopticon until 5th April (open Wednesday - Sunday noon - 5pm). This fabulous drawing is a one off and will be auctioned at the Laurel and Hardy film night 7pm on 2nd April. Come along and bid! or if you want to bid but can't make the evening, please email your bid to email@example.com and Judith with email back with a confirmation of your bid - which will be added to the auction.
