The Lions of Lisbon
About The Lions of Lisbon

A Play of Two Halves by Ian Auld & Willy Maley.

A rehearsed reading with live music.

Directed by Martin McCardie.

Get ready to roar. 2017 is the golden anniversary of the finest silver ever lifted. If you know the history… don’t just remember it, relive it…

In May 1967, 10,000 of the greatest supporters in the world embarked on the most important crusade since the quest for the Holy Grail. They hailed from Scotland, Ireland, and every corner of the globe. Most were Celtic daft. Some were just plain daft. All of them would have followed the Magnificent Eleven to the ends of the earth; 2,000 miles was a dawdle.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Lions of Lisbon are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
