If you know the history … don’t just remember it, relive it…

May 1967. 10,000 of the world’s greatest supporters 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.

A cast of ten, plus live band, recreate the humour, passion and occasional calamity that accompanied a Glasgow & District XI showing Europe’s finest how to play the beautiful game.

A staged reading, with live music.  A Play of Two Halves by Ian Auld & Willy Maley.
