Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival

One of Scotland�s most historic and significant theatres, designed by prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham. With many original features intact, this Glasgow institution is still a busy working theatre receiving musicals, drama and dance, and is proud of its part in Glasgow�s pantomime tradition.

The King's Theatre is one of Scotland's most historic and significant theatres. It opened in 1904 as one of the most brilliant designs of the prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham and has played host to top stars ever since.

It is home to possibly the very best Christmas pantomime to be seen in the United Kingdom which over the years has featured the Scottish greats including Stanley Baxter, Jimmy Logan, Rikki Fulton, Elaine C. Smith and Gerard Kelly.

The King's provides Glasgow's flourishing amateur groups with a high profile stage. It was the location for the opening ceremony of Glasgow's European City of Culture events in 1990. Above all, it continues to pack in appreciative audiences, performance after performance, year after year.
