On Our Way To Lisbon, The Ardhowen 8 pm £10
Glasgow Celtic’s 1967 European Cup win remains one of the great sporting legends of all time fifty years on. This amazing feat is at the heart of the spectacular drama ‘On Our Way To Lisbon’ by Patrick Prior.

The glory of the famous victory is set against the drab reality of their Glasgow existence. Was Celtic’s victory the best moment of their lives? The play has already thrilled audiences in Scotland, Ireland, England and in the United States gathering rave reviews, awards and standing ovations. Don’t miss this stunning piece of theatre.
Written by Patrick Prior, directed by Jim Dunk, performed by Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden.
