A month-long celebration of football and community from across Europe, right here in Glasgow 1-30 April.

The Goethe-Institut and the Alliance Française in Glasgow together with the Scottish Football Museum present a free month-long celebration of football and community across Glasgow this April.

From 1st – 30th April you will be able to experience a series of film installations and film screenings here at Platform and throughout The Bridge about how communities around the world react to the beautiful game of football. Platform is hosting offsite screenings at Grier’s Bar. All films are free and you don’t need a ticket – just come along and enjoy! There will also be a free pie and bovril waiting for you.


Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) is a postman living in Manchester whose life has been slowly going off the rails ever since his wife, Lily (Stephanie Bishop) walked out on him. One night, Eric is home alone, smoking some week, and to his amazement he’s visited by an apparition of Eric Cantona.
