King’s Facts and Stories
Did you know, Sir Sean Connery used to work as a stagehand at the King’s Theatre in the 50s? This is where his interest in acting first took off! The King’s stage has seen performances from legends including Sir Laurence Olivier, Maria Callas, Noel Coward, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellan. The theatre was built on the site of an old brewery and a burn (small stream) actually runs underneath the building. The Lochrin Burn runs from The Meadows and under the Union Canal and was once used by the brewery.
