Wellington Festival Launch: Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards
October 7, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Opening the Festival will be the Olympian (and national treasure) – Eddie “the eagle” Edwards – who will be talking about his escapades as he became the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping in 1988. This year, his story was told in the biographical film Eddie the Eagle, starring Hugh Jackman, which showed his perseverance and achievements all without funding.
Please note that since this was added to the calendar stuff may have changed. It’s not my fault, it just happens sometimes.
