1st Floor, 117 Trongate, G1 5HD
1857, Thomas Gildard & Robert H. M. MacFarlane (Cat A)
Come and experience the world's oldest surviving music hall in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City where Stan Laurel made his debut in 1906. Find out about its incredible, quirky and in some cases downright disgusting past.
Built in 1857, The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall has seen a variety of entertainments including Music Hall shows, cinematograph, waxworks, rooftop carnival and a basement zoo before it closed in 1938. Saved in 1997 by social historian Judith Bowers and currently undergoing a major conservation project. Come and marvel at the wonders hidden within its walls.
