Sharmanka - Review
Sharmanka Kinetic theatre is a really bizarre but lovely attraction in Glasgow. You will need to book tickets for the show in advance but it is worth the effort. The show is simply spectacular and tourists love to witness this unique spectacle that could hardly be found anywhere else.
The Show includes the use of light, sound, music, sculpture, puppets and movement to create an exuberant and astonishing theatre piece. There may be different themes to the show but the basic idea remains more or less the same. Odd objects like type-writers, scrap metal and what not have been used to make this very strange show. It is rather hard to explain the experience in the place due to its very unique nature but if you are an art lover with a penchant for the eccentric, do not miss out on this one.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 3 days.
- Do be sure to book your tickets well before hand. This is mostly meant for more mature audiences and kids can feel bored.
- Even if you don’t want to book a show you can see the stationary exhibits for free in the display area.

Sharmanka, Glasgow Reviews
Really interesting exhibition and definitely worth checking out if you are visiting Glasgow. There are dozens of kinetic machines which all move and tell a story, plus music is incorporated to the entire show which makes it all that much better. The machines that are older and built in Russia by the artist are only being played in certain times a couple of times a week so make sure to call and find out when that is if possible!! It is for sure a unique experience.
I love this place. I have been twice and planning to go back again. It is probably not for everyone but it is a beautiful exhibition. The sculptures are interesting on their own but the show is like nothing I've seen before.
Remarkable show. A magical, hidden gem, that few Glaswegians are aware of. Please go and support this remarkable creation.
Very creative and personal... A variety of marionette like machines (that isn't a good description, sorry) move and make sounds to compliment a variety of musical pieces. It sort of reminded me of the movie Coraline but 100x better!
Weird, wacky and wonderful. Definitely worth a visit but I recommend the 1hr show. We went to the 40minute show and didn't see the older pieces in action. Definitely a hidden gem based on the 1st floor of a council building in Trongate
