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.

A great seat. Brilliant leg room. Great view of the stage, you are right in the centre. Only problem is when people in the front row lean forward and lean on the balustrade to watch the show, they obstruct your view. More

The seat was alright, probably not worth the money though. The rake of the seating is poor so if someone tall was in front of you, they’d probably block your view. Even though I’m not tall, the legroom wasn’t great and found my legs were a little crushed... More

A really great seat - the legroom seems to be quite a lot better than the average theatre seat, I had room to stretch out a bit. The view was perfect - there was no problem being towards the side and the stage is the perfect height that you’re not craning... More
