Venue overview

The Theatre Royal Glasgow supports a wide variety of entertainment, regularly hosting large touring productions including West End tours of The Woman in Black and All My Sons. Originally opening in 1867 and reopening in 1985 after two fires, the Theatre Royal is home to Scotland’s resident companies; the Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet. The venue also acts as a City Centre for seminars, meetings and conferences throughout the year.

In 2005, ATG took over management of the theatre, ensuring that the Theatre Royal Glasgow would continue to provide first-class entertainment. Open for backstage tours during the day, with costumes and information on display, the building was restored in 2014 so that new, stylish contemporary designs could complement the original Victorian charm. Lifts were also put in so that the Circles and Balcony were accessible for all audience members. The foyer now includes a larger bar and café, whilst toilets and bars were renovated in each level and a new rooftop bar was put in place. With a seating capacity of 1,541, the theatre is built across the Stalls, Dress Circle, Upper Circle and Balcony, all offering varying views of the stage.

Good value seats

Less expensive seats are located towards the edges and rear of the Stalls and Dress Circle. The Upper Circle is a good bet for those wishing to see the whole stage, but it can feel fairly distant from the action. Some views towards the ends of rows may be a little restricted but are still good value for money.

Premium seats

The Theatre Royal offers affordable ticket prices for premium shows. The Stalls offer the best overall views of the stage, which is reflected in ticket pricing. Sitting in the front-centre of the Dress Circle is recommended for large-scale musicals. An Ambassador’s Lounge is also available in selected ticket deals.

Wonderful seat. Loads of legroom and a great view of the stage (but not too close so your neck doesn't get sore!). Very comfortable. I felt very involved in the show from this seat and would highly recommend it.... More

Not the best seat. You feel incredibly high up and it feels very steep. A decent overall view but the actors look small due to how far back you are. Only worth it if you get the seat for a cheap price. (Sorry about the programme in the picture!)... More

Very restricted view, could see just over half of the stage. Had to do a lot of leaning to see what was going on. Not a lot of legroom at all, even for a relatively small person! The seat was also very unstable, the whole row moving if one person mov... More
