Theatre Royal

Photo: Luigi di Pasquale

With nearly 150 years under its belt, the oldest theatre in Glasgow remains a major player on the Scottish scene, acting as home to both the Scottish Opera and the Scottish Ballet. In 2013–14 the Heritage Lottery fund made it possible for the theatre to undergo a major renovation. It reopened in December 2014 with completely redesigned foyers, a new box office, improved bars, more toilets and a roof terrace, plus a dramatically modernist foyer building by Glasgow architects Page\Park. The theatre now contains an interactive exhibit outlining its history and a cafe, Vanilla Black at the Theatre, which is open all day.
