Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards hosts evening at Richmond Bede Village

14 May 2013

In 1988 Eddie Edwards travelled to Calgary and represented Britain in the Winter Olympics.  He became Britain’s 1st and only Olympic ski jumper and was fondly re-christened “Eddie the Eagle”.

Eddie still holds the British Olympic record for ski jumping at 71 metres; his personal best is currently 119.5 metres.  He holds the world record for stunt jumping (10 cars/6 buses) and was ranked world number 9 at amateur speed skiing (106.8mph).

He was crowned Winter Wipeout Celebrity champion 2012 winning £10,000 for charity and was a finalist in Let’s Dance Sports Relief 2012.  Eddie was also the winner of the 2013 ITV1 prime time Saturday evening show, Splash!

He is a very popular after dinner and motivational speaker and will be hosting an evening at Richmond Bede Village on Tuesday 14th May, beginning at 6.30pm.

Tickets are £12.50 per person and include a 3 course dinner, followed by tea and coffee.
