Lyric Theatre, Sauchiehall st, Renfield st




The Royalty Theatre, Glasgow (later the Lyric Theatre) was a theatre in Glasgow at the corner of Sauchiehall Street and Renfield Street. It was built in 1879 as part of a development by the Central Halls Company chaired by David Rattray,[1] and was one of the first theatre designs of Frank Matcham. In 1895 it was one of the four theatres brought together by Baillie Michael Simons of Glasgow in a new company Howard & Wyndham Ltd. The Royalty staged plays, opera, and musical comedy and later became home to repertory theatre[2] until it became the Lyric Theatre in 1914 when it was sold to the YMCA.[3] It was rebuilt after a fire in 1953 but eventually demolished in 1959, and replaced by St. Andrew House, a large concrete office block, which is now a hotel.
