Brilliant well done everyone 🧙♀️👻☠💀
Fantastic girls x 👏
Brilliant 👏👏👏👏 Well done to the best run theatre in Scotland. 😍😍😍👹👻👽👾🎃🎃
Well done to the Pavilion and the dancers 🥰
That was fab
As I've already said if screens are the way forward in pavillion pantos it's a step back as actual sets and scenery are panto and screens are very plain and don't look the part
Well done Pavilion and McKechnie 👏👏
That was amazin. Well done girls 👌💖
We got together with our young performers from the McKechnie School of Dance to create a new Halloween video. These dedicated young people are the future of theatres across the country and have had a hard time through lockdown, not only the schools being closed but also their dance schools and all of the competitions that they work hard to compete in year after year being cancelled or done online, which is never the same.
This was an exciting thing to do, getting rehearsed to do a performance from start to finish and with a purpose. As always, they done a great job and we are sure you will all love the video, which will be on here on HALLOWEEN!!
Also, in doing this video gave Scott and the technical team a chance to use our new Panto set which includes a full stage of video screens and probably a first to be used in a panto production. This will allow us to do a complete scene change and magical effects in front of the audience at the push of a button or a wave of the Fairy’s Magic Wand. In our opinion, this will be the future, Panto in HD quality and where we will stick to the traditional Pavilion Family Panto values that have been built up over the years, this technology is the way forward and will bring excitement, colour and magic to our pantomime, which will be hard for others to follow.
We hope you enjoy the Halloween Video and thank everyone involved in bringing this to life. ... See MoreSee Less
Personal preference of actual pantomime sets and scenery over screens that just looks lazy I'll always support pavilion pantos are that's what I grew up with but that's a step back imo
Very sad news that Bobby Ball half of the hilarious comedy duo Cannon and Ball has passed away. I first worked with them back in the early 70’s when they were support act to Christian on tour and at the King's Theatre Glasgow, great to work with and always great entertainment during their visits to the Pavilion.
Our thoughts are with Yvonne and all his family and friends at this very sad time.
Rock on Bobby … you made us all laugh … Job Done!
Iain Gordon. ... See MoreSee Less
Oooooo he made me laugh so .....sincere condolences to family and friends ❤ xxx
Seemed like a great guy. RIP.
Aww loved his wee face. Just makes me smile. So sad for the family.xx
Really sad to hear this, made me laugh so many times x
As a ‘Tommy’ I’ll continue to ‘rock-on’ in his memory.
So sad, r.i.p Bobby x
So sad seen them a few times RIP Bobby xx💔
As a child every summer on holiday I saw them at Blackpool .. Rock on Tommy very funny xx
RIP Bobby Ball you little legend. You'll be sorely missed 😓😓😓
RIP Bobby Ball
RIP Bobby Ball 💔💔👍
So sad made me laugh RIP Bobby 😪😪❤x x
I have a sudden urge to watch The Boys in Blue. Happy childhood memories watching Cannon and Ball on the telly box. Rock in peace Bobby.
So sad loved Bobby Ball see him and Tommy a few times in Blackpool and the Pavilion condolences to his family will always be remembered xx 😥😥💕
Rock on Bobby.
So sad, loved them both in the day... 😭
So sad thoughts are with his family x
So sad 😢❤️
Remember seeing them in Blackpool in 1980 and they were superb. That was back in the day when a lot of big act’s played places like Blackpool

Wot date is it ?
Fantastic can't wait to see it xx
How can the London Palladium have a sold-out performance last night with ex Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, with what looks like no self-distancing? This does not make sense, there is hardly an empty seat in the house.
How can they sit in a theatre with very little self-distancing to talk about football but cannot sit outside in a football stadium to watch a game? Even the queues outside the venue there was no self-distancing. twitter.com/colinfloodefc/status/1315931223601152000?s=21
Is this because Lord Lloyd Webber is a Tory? Is there one rule for the London arts elite and another for the rest of us? This goes against all the current surveys that say people do not want to return to theatres and live entertainment as a whole. It also looks like that they have more events planned in the next month in the lead up to their Pantomime.
This all seems irresponsible but clearly ammunition for us all to re-open all entertainment venues and for football clubs to open stadiums and welcome fans back. ... See MoreSee Less
As always different rules for the elite and those idiots making them... such a shame for our Theatres and hospitality 😭😭
Unfortunately your under Scottish government rules. There's clubs open in England with live entertainment. Take it up with the Scottish parliament, before Scotland is bankrupt.
It's Football - they have their own laws in life - PRIVILEGE - overpaid ball kickers.
If heaps of folk phone the filth..sorry the police and complain then they have to investigate it, I think
One set of rules for them and another for us. Abd always will be. Time we took matters into our hands and break away
Won't be long before that there London are in tier two.
Its rule for London.. it’s criminal
Absolutely disgusted by this 🤬🤬 where’s all the rules here!!!! As you say one rule for them and 1 for the rest of us xx
It looks like there is a space like 2 seats in between what I surmise is each ticket purchase and they have masks on too x it just all depends if theatres could afford to lose seats x
I had booked 4 shows this year in London and Glasgow, not one went ahead, only got a refund for one, the other 3 said they will be shown next year 🤨 to be honest I would not go in to a theatre just now, but I would like to know who makes the decisions of what is allowed?
Scottish government put the rules here, London is ran by Boris. Blame the snp if you are not happy about this in relation to scottish theaters not being open
Totally irresponsible at this time and every single person there should be fined.
To an extent I agree however if this was done as a tester event if the palladium come out of this unscathed surely then ask to open theatres and football grounds I think what happened last night can be seen as a positive move tbh
London has its own set of rules. Always has. But this is just downright irresponsible in the present time. I've got loads of tickets for shows, concerts as well as a season ticket I can't use and for a good reason. Public health!
Ask Sturgeon and the SNP, Scottish closures are 100% their doing. Maybe if we had a 'one singer one song' covid response, instead of deliberate division mongering and political posturing, both the Palladium and Pavilion would be open.
Totally agree with you it is one rule for the rich Tories and one rule for the rest of us
The public need to wake up take to the streets and tell them enough is enough , but it looks everybody is happy sit back and put up 😡😡
Same with weddings then we should be able to have our numbers ! At least we know who we are sitting next to!!
As a performer, for whom the Government have made it illegal for me to work, I find this utterly disgusting, and morale breaking. There's me, doing my bit, while THIS is going on.
I find it strange that everything North of Manchester is in effect on another lockdown, yet we hear and see nothing of London and the South of England, am I the only one wondering why when it was the centre of the first wave that the news and media seem to be devoid of information, just saying ?
i watched bgt final on sat night .there is a show starting 5th dec with michael ball running for 5 weeks
So much for London being a being under tier3 severe high risk they don't care at all
Definitely not fair that this is allowed but you cant attend outdoor sports stadia. Aren't we told by every administration in the Uk that the virus spreads quicker indoors
Would that be the same Lord Webber who claimed travel expenses for flying in from New York to vote in favour of benefit cuts for poor people?
Creator and Star of Netflix smash hit 'The Duchess' (along with two global Netflix comedy specials: In Trouble and Glitter Room), comedian and TV’s Katherine Ryan makes a hugely welcome return to the Pavilion Theatre on Thursday 7th October 2021 with her brand-new live show, Missus.
Having previously denounced partnership, Katherine has since married her first love, accidentally. A lot has changed for everyone and we can look forward to hearing Katherine Ryan’s hilarious new perspectives on life, love, and what it means to be Missus.

Comedy superstar John Bishop is coming back to the Pavilion Theatre on Thursday 3rd February 2022 with his highly anticipated brand-new stand up show – Right Here, Right Now.
This will be John’s eighth stand up show and it is shaping up to be his best yet. It will see him performing across the UK, Ireland, America, Canada and Europe. He can’t wait to be back on the road again!!
John has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows including- ‘John Bishop’s Australia’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Britain’ (BBC1); ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ (Sky1); ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1); ‘The John Bishop Christmas Show’ (BBC1) and ‘John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure’ (ITV1). More recently ‘John Bishop’s Ireland’ for ITV1 and four mammoth series of the critically acclaimed ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ which saw him chatting, one to one with some of the World’s biggest, household names.

Here is a picture of our on stage ‘Ghost Light’. This is a bit of a tradition in theatres of a certain age and is used when theatres are unoccupied.
The practical use of a ghost light is for safety. A ghost light enables staff to navigate the theatre to find the lighting controls and to avoid accidents such as falling off the stage and stepping on or tripping over anything set on the stage. There is an unsubstantiated story of a burglar who tripped on a dark stage, broke his leg and sued the theatre for damages, so it will help nowadays to avoid litigation and to comply with health and safety for all burglars.
Some claim that the tradition began in the days of gas-lit theatres when dim gas lights were left burning to relieve pressure on the gas valves, others say it’s superstitions associated with ‘Ghost’ stories and the supernatural but who knows and we are happy to keep up the tradition as the Pavilion ghosts live in peace with us, and us with them, so we are all happy. Perhaps they are the ones that are looking after us and have helped us survive through the years.
So we will continue to leave the ghost light on and who knows, maybe they come out at night and perform live on stage (so long as they safe distance, wash their hands and supply contact details for test and protect, we will all live happy ever after). ... See MoreSee Less
What about socially distanced evening tours to raise money? All i ever wanted as a child was to sing on that stage, i ended up singing in Hammersmith Odeon, i thought that would take the dream away, but it didn't because it wasn't the pavillion where i had so much history and so many memories. I even sat in the same seat for years when i went to shows, 22c. My mums uncle used to operate the spotlights, i would find a million reasons to go to the loo, just so i could come back downstairs and pretend i was in the show. Long story short, we have to save the theatre by any means, tours, sell seats like they do at football, sell old show memorabilia what ever it takes, cos at this rate it's gna be me who's haunting it, sorry to vent but, let's save our old friend ❤🥰
Bruce Benzie this is a ghost light.
On the same theme who remembers the lamplighter who lit street lamps at night and came back I morning to put them out.. they were gas lamps of course.!!
My tickets for John Bishop have arrived already. Looking forward to visiting The Pavilion ❤
Excellent ....but creepy too. !!!

As we are sure you are aware, the traditional family pantomime at the Pavilion Theatre Glasgow cannot go ahead this year. But we couldn’t let it stop there so we have manged to arrange the cast, crew, musicians to come and rehearse the Panto Santa Claus is Coming to Town and this will be filmed and put out on YouTube. This will give everyone a chance to get the family around the Christmas tree and welcome Santa Claus into your living rooms.
Currently this production will star Stephen Purdon, Grado, Liam Dolan & Nicola Park. This will be approx. 35 to 40 minutes in total.
To date, we have been unable to secure any emergency or COVID-19 support funding to enable us to fund these projects, so this is where we are asking for your help. This is not something that we would normally do but currently, like all businesses, times are difficult, and we have had a number of suggestions on social media to launch this appeal.
The funds raised will all go towards paying for all the people involved in producing and presenting this one-off pantomime production. ... See MoreSee Less
Will miss being at the pavilion but glad we still get to watch the panto. Absolutely love it every year and more than happy to donate ❤ xxx
👍👍👍 quite disappointed that you haven't received any help though. Got replies from Nicola Sturgeon and Alison Thewliss. Alison Thewliss seems particularly keen to help. It's nuts when you consider how much was spent on the eat in to help out scheme. There are rumours of a similar scheme for theatres 🤞🤞🤞
Definitely a thumbs up from me will donate no problem. Good Luck.
