Celtic legends to relive Parkhead days in Belfast appearance

Celtic legends John Hartson and Stiliyan Petrov are coming to Northern Ireland and you could be there to see and meet the Bhoys.

Hartson and Petrov will be speaking about their glory years at Celtic, working under Martin O’Neill in Glasgow and what it was like to play in explosive Old Firm derbies against Rangers as well as their eventful spells in English football. The popular duo will also tell their inspiring stories about how they have overcome serious health issues in what promises to be a memorable night on October 13 in the Devenish Hotel in Belfast in an event organised by the Experience Epic company.

You can be in the audience to hear Hartson and Petrov reflect on Celtic’s incredible run to the UEFA Cup final in 2003 and air their views on the modern day game and the successful first season enjoyed by Brendan Rodgers at Parkhead. There is also the opportunity to meet both John and Stiliyan prior to them entertaining the crowd with their memories and opinions.

Welsh star Hartson says he and his good friend Petrov are relishing being in Belfast on October 13 later this year.

“Both Stiliyan and I had great times playing for Celtic and we are really looking forward to being at the Devenish Hotel in Belfast in October to meet the fans and speak about our football careers,” said Hartson.

“We know how many passionate and loyal Celtic fans there are all over Ireland, both north and south, and we hope to see a packed house on the night. It will be fantastic to share a stage, great memories and stories with my friend and old team-mate Stiliyan, who was such a brilliant player.

“Experience Epic are well known for running brilliant shows and we know this one will be great fun for everyone who attends.”

The Meet and Greet session will start at 6pm with the main event kicking off at 8pm.

There are two ticket options available. The standard ticket, costing £15, will let you experience and enjoy the show while a VIP Meet and Greet the Stars ticket, at £30, gives you the chance to meet John and Stiliyan and have pictures taken.
