A Midsummer Night’s Dram - An Evening of Mirth, Music and Memories

About A Midsummer Night’s Dram - An Evening of Mirth, Music and Memories

Traditionally a time of magic, odd happenings and strange tales, join our motley cast for a night of laughter, Glasgow songs, and vintage images of the city.

For such a night we need a minstrel, a fool, and a ‘rude mechanical’. Step forward your lords of misrule: actor and musician Allan Tall, Scottish stand-up legend Stu Who?, and Lost Glasgow curator Norry Wilson (his Bottom has been much admired!).

What fools these mortals be!

Add in a fun but fiendish Glasgow trivia quiz, and it could be the most enchanted night of the year.

Your hostess and MC for the evening is the Pantopicon’s own Judith Bowers – “Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

Dim the light and let your imagination take flight…

“If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Midsummer Night’s Dram - An Evening of Mirth, Music and Memories are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
