Featuring (Speedo Mick) Set inside the 1787 Everton Lock-Up. Two Evertonians have barricaded themselves inside, hoping to find the lost gold of ‘Prince Rupert’. Their aim is to turn Goodison into a super stadium and thwart the move to Bramley Moore, only to discover they are the only two fans who want to stay!
Inside the Tower, they stumble across a secret tunnel and unwittingly release the ghosts of Everton’s past… Dixie Dean, Molly Bushell, Prince Rupert, Maggie Magee and Bessie Braddock. Each spirit takes them on a historical journey where they discover the true meaning of being an Evertonian and the rich history that lies inside the heart of Everton’s badge.
(John O’Connell will play a pre-show 30-minute guitar recital)
