Designed by Bertie Crewe for Thomas Barrasford, the Pavilion Theatre Glasgow opened at the corner of Renfield Street and Renfrew Street, Glasgow on the 29 February, 1904. It was regarded as luxurious for its time with its decor being described by the owners as "pure Louis XV". An electrically operated sliding roof ensured good ventilation.
Performances in the early days were mainly variety, melodrama and pantomime. Many of the leading music hall artistes of the period appeared at the Pavilion, including Marie Lloyd, Little Tich, Harry Lauder, Florrie Forde, Will Fyffe, Sarah Bernhardt and a then unknown Charlie Chaplin.
Since the 1930s, the Pavilion Theatre began to host pantomimes with top name stars of the Scottish variety scene, such as Harry Gordon and Dave Willis. In more recent times it has produced plays, such as 'The Sash' and 'The Steamie'.
The Pavilion Theatre Glasgow is now the only privately run theatre in Scotland and one of a few unsubsidised independent theatres left in Britain.
It remains one of the treasures of Glasgow, a genuine variety theatre, showing varied shows with literally something for everyone.
We are literally a 30 second walk from Buchanan Street Bus Station, less than 5 minutes walk from Queen Street Station and Central train stations and Buchanan Street Underground station. Also a number of buses stop right outside our door and there is a taxi rank in Renfield Street right outside.
There is on-street parking around the theatre and a number of multi-story carparks within a very short distance of the theatre, the local area is well served with a number of excellent restaurants and bars.
