Welcome to the website of the

 

Britannia Panopticon

the world's oldest surviving

Music Hall! 

Opening Hours
 

 

We will open for general viewing Tuesdays to Saturdays 12-5pm from the 5th March. 

Unfortunately from now on we will no longer be allowing photography at our evening shows, as we will be engaging the services of a professional photographer to take pictures of our events.
We will still be allowing photography of our daytime shows, with the exception of our junior acts, provided the photographer has completed model release forms from the performers.

Seattle is coming to Glasgow!

 

The Moisture Festival, America's biggest annual Variety Festival, is coming to Glasgow for the Merchant City Festival to help raise money for Britannia Panopticon Music Hall. The festival organiser, Ron Bailley, has set up this link to help raise money for flights and accommodation for the visiting performers

TICKETS

 

To reserve seats please email us on info@britanniapanopticon.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.

For all you lovers of old theatres, have you heard of "Old Theatres" magazine? Well now you have and it will be available to buy from our little auditorium very soon, so pop by and purchase a copy.

 

 

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.
