MY LIFE, MY STORY
It was the conflict of a generation and one that many will never forget.
On the second of April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands.The Islands, which had been controlled by Great Britain for nearly 150 years, became a battleground and the UK government were quick to defend both the Islands and it's inhabitants.
What was to follow saw the deaths of 655 Argentinian Soldiers and 255 British Serviceman. Amongst those who were sent to the conflict was Simon Weston CBE.
In one of the most horrific moments of the conflict the RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentinian planes, aboard at the time was Simon. This was an event which would change his life forever. Eventually, and against the odds, Simon escaped the burning and buckled ship, but only after suffering 46% burns to his body.
Now after his 2015 Sell Out UK tour Simon returns to the stage for a second time to continue sharing his incredible life story.
Simon Weston; My Life, My Story is a truly inspirational show about one mans journey from the front line of war, being on the edge of death, to today being a happy and contented father, grandfather and national treasure.
