From The Heart of Everton's Badge to the Grand Old Lady

From The Heart of Everton’s Badge to the Grand Old Lady is returning to The Epstein Theatre this August.

The play celebrates the history of Goodison Park, which has been home to Everton Football Club for 125 years and comes to the Hanover Street venue August 29–31.

The story is centred around the Everton Lock-Up, or Prince Rupert’s Tower as it is known locally, which has stood at the peak of Everton Brow since 1787 and sits on the club crest.

Two Evertonians, Jim and Robbo, lock themselves in the tower after the crowds disperse with the aim of finding the lost ‘Prince Rupert’s’ gold.
