Welcome to the Glasgow Light Opera Club!

The Glasgow Light Opera Club (GLOC) are an inclusive and friendly amateur dramatic club based in Glasgow.

We have members from all walks of life and all age groups who share one thing in common...a love for musical theatre!

Since 1908 GLOC have staged operettas and musicals for the people of Glasgow and beyond to enjoy!

GLOC's dedication to singing and acting excellence has always been at the forefront of what we do, as well as keeping the amateur tradition safe and healthy in increasingly challenging times.  We perform a major musical show annually at the Kings Theatre Glasgow.

We meet for rehearsals in Glasgow Indoor Bowling Club and are always on the lookout for new acting and singing talent! If you are interested in us, why not come along and see us in action at our rehearsals? We can guarantee you will be made very welcome. Please see our Club News page for the latest information.


GLOC are delighted to support Calums Cabin

GLOC are delighted to continue supporting the brilliant charity 'Callum's Cabin'

Calum's Story

Calum Speirs was born on 18th November 1994, one minute before his beloved younger twin sister Jenna. Calum was a fit and healthy young man until January 2006 when his first symptoms were spotted. Within 3 days Calum was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Calums treatment included chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which Calum handled with great courage, dignity and humour for someone so young. Calum was an inspiration to all who knew and met him, he always laughed, smiled and thought of others. CALUM'S CABIN was Calum's idea, knowing he and his family lived in a beautiful part of the world , wouldn’t it be great to have children suffering from cancer come to Bute and make special irreplaceable memories. Calum even organised his own funeral service to save Duncan, Jenna and I any worry or stress. We lost Calum 13 months after diagnosis on 16th February 2007. Calum lives on in Calums Cabin, and he has left us all with his drive and determination to make Calums Cabin what he would want it to be.

GLOC are delighted to support this wonderful charity and would like to encourage everyone to lend their support in any way they can. If you would like more information on Calums Cabin please use the link http://www.calumscabin.com
