Eddie The Eagle Edwards is a unique British sporting hero with an incredible story to tell. Despite landing in last place at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, a short-sighted, plasterer from Gloucester jumped straight into the hearts of the public.
'The Eagle who Dared' is a family-friendly autobiography live on stage, featuring never- before-told tales, a blizzard of hilarious anecdotes and a succession of soaring highs and bumpy landings: from Celebrity Squares to bankruptcy, through facial reconstruction and divorce to being affirmed as a National treasure and immortalised on the silver screen in a major feature film.
His unique story of flying against-all-odds and turning failure into success shows what’s possible when you dare to follow your dream.
