‘Everton FC in Everton Day’ – News Report

An ‘Everton FC in Everton’ Day took place on Saturday, 29 June (11am to 1pm) at the historic Lock-Up Tower
featured on our club crest. This free event, jointly organised by the Official Everton FC Heritage Society and the Friends of Everton Park, was very well supported despite the poor weather, and saw over 100 Everton fans in attendance, some travelling from as far as Japan, Australia, and even Newcastle!

Here is our report of the event, filmed and edited by Lewis Royden of Everton FC Heritage Society;

  • I’m a lifelong Evertonian from Lincoln. I go to all home games. Totally loved the video. Strangely, I’ve never been to the Lock Up. I have to put it on the list.
    Well done on the “Everton FC in Everton” day. Top work guys.
    See you all in August

  • I had the pleasure of attending yesterday and was an amazing opportunity to go inside the tower that is so symbolic to us blues. Everybody seemed genuinely happy to have this experience and the spontaneous round of applause for the person who had come from Japan was a great moment! The history talk and walk with Ken Rogers was fascinating. Thanks all round to the EvertonFC Heritage Society for organising this and I am looking forward to hopefully any more events that you put on during the year. I have been on your website and will be working my way through amazing range of material as this has awoken me more to the rich history of EFC, and puts the recent issues into perspective. I imagine this year is going to be a busy one for you but am sure if you reach out you will get volunteers to help if needed (myself included!). Looking forward to August and visiting St Lukes on matchday. If You Know Your History. UTT

    • Many thanks for your kind words Paul, and your support on the day! Very much appreciated! Keep a look out on our social media for future events, and if we need volunteers – thanks for your kind offer.
      Best regards
      Mike Royden
