Scotland’s largest 1920s themed cabaret and club night joins forces with The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall for one night only to present a very special ‘Best Of’ cabaret show at the Merchant City Festival, featuring a star-studded lineup of music hall variety, cabaret acts, burlesque performers, dancers, comedy, live music and more!
The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall is the oldest surviving music hall in the world. Built in 1857 by Thomas Gildard and H. M. McFarlane, it has hosted some of the biggest names on the music hall circuit. In 1906 Stan Laurel made his first stage appearance there on amateur night. In that same year A. E. Pickard bought the building and undertook some major works, installing a freak show, a roof top carnival and a waxworks musuem. He also excavated the basement and installed an indoor zoo.
The Panopticon was one of the first buildings in Glasgow to become powered by electricity and one of the first cinemas in Scotland. It closed in 1938 when it was sold to a tailors and converted to a workshop. It is currently being conserved by a trust who regularly perform traditional shows in the auditorium, and is protected as a category A listed building.
Dress Code: Flapper dresses, headbands, long pearl necklaces, waistcoats and spats, fetching fedoras, gangsters and molls, vamps and vixens. 1920s dress code encouraged but not compulsary.
