The Glasgow Apollo

Once Green’s Playhouse Cinema, famous for it’s Golden Divans, then renamed the Apollo—the premier music venue for bands on tour; the building was not reprieved and the space is now home to a large, multi-screen cinema complex.  But the echoes of the Apollo live on!

Great Western Auctions

IRN-BRU  _ A.G. Barrs Plc

 For those of you who don’t know, Irn Bru is a Scottish soft drink.  Until very recently it outsold Coca-Cola in Scotland, and may still do.  It is bright orange in colour and very sweet and I love it, as do most Scots, I think.  It also has a secret formula, known to only two people at any one time.  This tells the history of the company who make it, Barrs….
