Simon Weston CBE is set to tell his inspiring life-story in An Evening With Simon Weston in a personal live show this Summer.
Simon was a soldier serving in the British Army at the time of the Falklands War in 1982 when two Argentine planes bombed RFA Sir Galahad and turned the ship into an inferno. Simon survived but suffered burns to 46% of his body, yet, he would say he was lucky as he lost many of his comrades that day.
Since that fateful day he has become one of the most recognised faces of the conflict and in this show he discusses his experiences with his close friend David Fitzgerald from the BBC.
Simon Weston is a truly remarkable man who despite all he has suffered has emerged as one of this country’s most inspirational people. His story has highs and lows, laughter and tears and on that journey, he has subsequently met Royalty, the pilot who dropped the bomb and even Harry Patch the last survivor of WW1.
The show will come delivered with footage from the conflict, colour print and will include a Q & A session.
Wales audiences can catch Simon at Carmarthen’s Lyric Theatre on June 12, 2019 (Box office 0345 226 3510) and Brecon’s Theatr Brycheiniog on July 17, 2019 (Box Office: 01874 611622.
