Britannia Panopticon

Britannia Panopticon Music Hall – Documentary

Glasgow’s Britannia Panopticon is the world’s oldest standing music hall, built in 1857. It was built during the Victorian era. Music halls were a common source of entertainment during this time, and they were constructed often attached to the back. This particular Music Hall was unique as it was situated above the bar. You can find this historical destination at 113-117 Trongate in the heart of Glasgow (in Glasgow’s Merchant City; read more about this area below!)

Today, this historic building is run by a charitable trust, which works onsite throughout the day. These volunteers will welcome you and will be able to inform you of the historic building, famous acts which played at the venue, and why or how the venue did not burn down like many others in the past! One famous face from the past: Stan Laurel. (Half of the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy!)

Throughout the year, they host events to raise funds for the upkeep of the building, such as silent films, sing-alongs, comedy nights, and more. You can find out all about their upcoming events here.
