The site of the present day Tron Theatre has played a central role in the life of Glasgow City for nearly five centuries, during which time it has been a place of Christian worship, a place of execution, a meeting hall, a market and store house, a police station, and a theatre.

A church was originally built on the site now occupied by the Tron Theatre in 1529. However, the oldest surviving part of the structure is the 16th Century clock tower – still one of Glasgow’s most recognizable landmarks.

First established as a theatre club in 1979, the Tron has gone on to become a leading player in Scottish theatre. Home to the Tron Theatre Company, who focus mainly on new writing, the theatre is also a a major venue for many of Glasgow's festivals including Celtic Connections, Glasgow International Jazz Festival, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, the Merchant City Festival and Glasgay!
