The Theatre Royal Glasgow is home to Scotland’s resident companies, Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet, and is a unique City Centre venue for conferences, meetings and seminars.

The Victorian auditorium and stylish contemporary corporate areas provide privacy and flexibility for many occasions. On March 2005 Ambassador Theatre Group took over the management of the Theatre Royal Glasgow, and continues to present first class entertainment.
