Ukraine Charity Event

The Texas Gun event held on Sunday afternoon, 3rd April, was a resounding success, raising over £3,000 for the hard-pressed people of Ukraine who are suffering so much after the Russian invasion of their country.  Many thanks to everyone who came along to the event and to other contributors who donated to this worthy cause.

Facebook

Please note we have a new Facebook page, Glasgow’s Grand Ole Opry Members and Friends.  Keep up to date on the latest Opry happenings and debates by contributing a post to the page. Why not join the Opry Club itself and enjoy reduced admission charges on Fridays and Saturdays? It’s great value and a brilliant night out with live music and very competitive bar prices.

Website

There have been numerous visits to the website since it began and this, hopefully, translates into more visitors to the Club itself.  If you are looking for a night out with a difference and one that won’t break the bank, come along and soak up the friendly atmosphere and make new friends.

Country Music Needs More Support

With bands folding all too often these days it is increasingly urgent for country music fans to support the clubs and bands still in existence. The Opry offers members free admission on a Saturday evening for the payment of just two extra pounds on a Friday evening. You can’t get better than that – two nights of live entertainment for just £6! If you know of any members who haven’t been at the club for a while, why not encourage them to come along again to enjoy the music, dancing and keenly-priced drinks from the bar! Since the start of 2017 the club has been well attended on Saturdays, and Fridays have also picked up which is encouraging in these strained economic times. Visiting parties (birthdays, hen and stag nights, etc) have helped to swell the figures but we also need the members to support the club as much as possible. Spread the news among your friends and neighbours that the Opry offers a great night out. The number of visiting parties demonstrates that it is seen as a fun venue and is somewhere a bit different to celebrate an event.
