Soapbox Launch Event II – An Evening with The Eagle
Best known for representing Great Britain at the 1988 Winter Olympics, Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards will be entertaining guests at The Forum theatre on Friday 28th June with an evening of stories and comedy. Eddie will team up with a comedian and compere to entertain you with an insight into his life and what led him to take on the 70m and 90m ski-jump ramps. Eddie’s heroic failures won the hearts and minds of the public and in 2016, he was portrayed by Taron Egerton in the biographical film Eddie the Eagle, and he remains one of the best loved British athletes today.
Eddie is in town to launch the Barrow BID Super Soapbox Event the following day, when he will be piloting the first soapbox down the Barrow town centre course. The launch ramp won’t be as high as the 70m ramp Eddie is used to, but he is looking forward to coming to Barrow and entertaining his fans.
Comedian and Compere TBC
