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.
