LADIES & GENTLEMEN, BOYS & GIRLS, EMINENT CITIZENS & FRIENDS.
It is with great delight, exhilaration and plentiful excitement that we announce the launch of the world’s most magnificent machine. A veritable wonder of the world, a sensational curiosity, a marvel of engineering and imagination. The Submarine Time Machine.
To mark this illustrious occasion we are inviting you to join us in a celebration of its launch. Arrive on the towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal between Speirs Locks and Firhill Basin for a veritable feast of entertainment, a day of erudition and amusement, featuring performance, spectacle, dance, the singing of songs and the telling of the tallest tales.
Marvel at the strength of the boy who pulled the plug that drained the canal, swoon at the sight of the glorious white hart that appears whenever a stout heart is broken, be aghast and exhausted as you take wing with the most incredible Glesga Doo, relive the glory day of Partick Thistle Football Club’s defining defeat of the Lisbon Lions and roar 4-1 all over again. Let your imagination fly and be part of this most historical occasion when the Submarine Time Machine will transport us all to a new world of possibility and opportunity.
If you believe in magic and the power of imagination then please join us, as this is the fuel on which our time machine is propelled.
