Emergency Committee

Due to some committee resignations an emergency support team has been put in place until the Special General Meeting on Wednesday 13th March to allow members to vote in a new committee. Watch this space and/or notices around the hall for updates.
Please note that the club and bar is open as usual this weekend

Membership Fees

 It was decided at the latest AGM that the annual membership fee, which has been unchanged for several years, should be increased to £10 from April 2024.

 Admission Charges

 Admission charges for members to club nights remain unchanged at £4 for a single evening, with a £6 concession for entry on both Friday and Saturday, to be paid on the Friday. Admission charge for non-members will be increased to £7 from 1st October 2023.

 GOO-Live

 Established to bring some of the best live bands and tribute acts to the Glasgow area, GOO-Live will be staging various acts on Thursdays and Sundays in the Opry on a regular basis. Announcements will appear on the Opry Facebook page as well as on the What’s On page on the Opry website and App, giving information on these acts and ticket prices. GOO-Live also has a website at GOO-Live/tickets, giving full details. This venture will give music fans an additional opportunity to see bands that are not part of the regular Opry programme, and we look forward to this exciting new introduction to the Opry calendar.

*Please note the Opry does not currently have card payment facilities. All transactions must be made in cash only.*

Opry App

The Opry now has an app which can be downloaded from the app store for i-phones or playstore for Android devices.

 Affiliated Clubs

 The Opry Gun Club, and The Re-enactment Club have now re- opened. Check out our What’s On page for details.

 Facebook

Please note we have a new Facebook page, Glasgows 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. Great venue for lively Hen and Stag nights, birthdays and any other occasion you want to celebrate. Tables can be reserved for larger parties by contacting the Secretary, Chris on 07566762320, and paying a deposit of £1.00 per person, refundable on the night, to secure the booking.

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.
