The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

The west end of Glas­gow cov­ers a huge, bustling area cen­tred around Great Western Road and Byres Road and is var­i­ously de­scribed as ev­ery­thing from cos­mopoli­tan and trendy to leafy and bo­hemian. Bustling, busy, cul­tured and steeped in his­tory, it has great trans­port links to the rest of the city and be­yond. Just about ev­ery­thing you could wish for, whether you are into café cul­ture, fine din­ing, artis­tic pur­suits, fan­tas­tic theatre, mu­sic, parks or shop­ping. It’s the home of Glas­gow Univer­sity and the Òran Mór’s ground­break­ing lunchtime theatre pro­gramme, A Play, a Pie and a Pint (oran-mor.co.uk), is one of the best things about the west end – new writ­ers, es­tab­lished stal­warts, great ac­tors and fan­tas­tic new voices all com­bine in a se­ries of plays com­mis­sioned by the venue each year.
