Glasgow Arts presents Beauty and the Beast 

This December, we bring the beloved fairy tale to your doorstep, with our family-friendly, affordable panto tour of community venues across Glasgow.

The handsome Prince Sebastian has been cursed by the vain witch Deadly Nightshade and turned into a scary Beast.

Now he lives all alone – apart from with his faithful housekeeper – in a crumbling castle where no-one can bear to look at him!

Follow the feisty Belle and her good pals Betty and Boaby as they fight to break the evil spell and bring love, joy and laughter back into the Beast’s life.

Full tour schedule here.

Christmas Concert: The Snowman 

Saturday 21st Dec

We’re walking in the air…it isn’t Christmas until The Snowman has taken you on his magical journey through the winter sky. In this special screening of the festive classic, the RSNO helps him on his way – and teams up with presenter Jamie MacDougall and our wonderful RSNO Chorus to host a Christmas party for the whole family. Expect seasonal favourites, carols old and new – and of course, a chance for everyone to sing along!
