About The Big Variety

HAPPY NEW YEAR! THE BIG VARIETY IS BACK!

Following 2 sold out trial runs in March 2020 (before the pandemic) and November 2021 (after the pandemic), The Big Variety is now officially a monthly event!

That's right and this is the first of our new monthly shows. Alastar is back and he's bringing his performing chums with him once again.

The Big Variety is an all new and inclusive monthly live cabaret show taking place on the second Friday of every month featuring some of the most iconic performers from the world of Cabaret, Variety, Burlesque, Magic, Drag, you name it. With a different lineup of local entertainers every month this sell-out show is a night not to be missed. Expect the unexpected as our host with the most tries to keep these fabulous acts in line. Some say our boy Alastar bears a striking similarity to Drag-Opticon's Alana Duvey but we'll let you be the judge of that... all we know is we've never seen them in the same room at the same time, just sayin'

This is a seated event and a safe, welcoming space for all in a stunning theatre style setting. The venue has a licensed bar and a warm, relaxed atmosphere but can get very chilly on cold nights so please wrap up warm.

The Big Variety contributes to the conservation of the World's oldest surviving Music Hall, the Britannia Panopticon, where legendary comedian Stan Laurel made his stage debut. By purchasing a ticket you are also supporting this wonderful venue and local performers.

Show Date: Friday, 14 January 2022.
Ticket Price: £20.00.
Venue: The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, 117 Trongate, Glasgow, G1 5HD.
Doors Open: 19:00 (7:00pm).
Show Starts: 19:30 (7:30pm).
Show Finishes: 21:30/22:00 approx (9:30pm/10:30pm approx).
Bar Closes: 00:00 (12:00am/midnight). Bar will close before then if all audience members have left the building.
18+ (Please be aware there may be a possibility of flashing lights/images, adult themes/language, nudity and content of a spooky or offensive nature! It is cabaret all, anything goes!)
