The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall building is situated on Glasgow’s historic Trongate. This music hall began life in 1857 at a time when Glasgow’s population was booming, and its streets were overcrowded with working folk desperate to be entertained. It would have held over 1500 visitors, eager to be amused and let off steam while watching the acts that ranged from singers, dancers and comedians to acrobats, animal, and novelty acts.
