28 Mar A Trip To The Theatre
Take A Trip To The Theatre
Easter doesn’t have to all be about chocolate. There’s plenty of alternative activities going on around Glasgow during the egg and bunny season and, this week, we wanted to delve into the delights on offer across Glasgow’s creative platforms, giving you a rundown of what’s on hot stage over the Easter period. If you’re staying at the Albion Hotel then you’re well-placed to access Glasgow’s best entertainment venues, with the Oran Mor just a stroll away and the city centre a ten-minute subway ride from our door. Read on to see what we think is too good to miss this April.
Re:Birth: A Stand Up Tour: Russell Brand
11th April, SEC Glasgow

This glittering stage show will bring to life the classics, from No Woman No Cry to Could You Be Loved and One Love. Promising to be a chilled-out evening full of positive vibes, we suggest a rum and coke in hand to celebrate!

Scottish Ballet present this modern-day love story with plenty of edge and cultural relevance. If you thought ballet was all men in tights and ladies in tutus, then think again. Full of the passion of youth, Highland Fling tells the tale of a young man with sex, love and rock and roll on the mind, who finds himself being led astray by intrigue as a beautiful gothic fairy casts him down into the underworld of Glasgow’s mean streets and nightclub culture, far away from the place he calls home, and his beloved wife Effe….
