Help Britannia Panopticon get heating!

 

We are running a GoFundMe campaign to raise money so we can install a three-phase electricity supply which will allow us to get heating! 

 

Please give whatever you can and share this campaign with your friends!

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.
