Britannia Panopticon Needs a Bar!
The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall is finally getting an entertainment/bar license!
However we urgently need your help! In order to get our license we need to completely rebuild the ladies loos and improve the gents loos and we simply do not have enough money to do it. Please, please can you help us? If we don't get these improvements done in the next few weeks, our audience capacity will be reduced from 120 to 50!
An entertainment license means we be able to charge ticket prices rather than relying solely on donations, and the bar will be a huge help in fundrasinig for the conservation project to ensure the future of our little music hall (which is the oldest surviving in the world).
Every pound counts. Thank you so much for supporting us and we hope to see you at our forthcoming events and at our new bar!
To reserve seats please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0141 553 0840. We do not at this time sell tickets on line, you just reserve seats in advance and pay on the door.
Please be aware that it is our policy to hold reservations until 10 mins before the start of the show, at which point they will be passed on to the next people in the walk-up queue.
A dedicated team of volunteers have worked in conjunction with the archiving department of Glasgow University to digitise the scrapbooks of one of the great showmen of Glasgow's history and former owner of the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, A. E. Pickard.
These scrapbooks are now available online for the whole world to view. So go on a take a look into the mind of one of the great characters of Music Hall history, and learn a little bit more about our beloved Britannia Panopticon at the same time.
You can find our Amazon store here.
