Ideas Week 2018 - Eddie the Eagle, The Moorings Hotel, Monday, 12. November 2018

An evening of inspiration with Eddie the Eagle!
Join us for a brilliant evening of inspiration from Michael 'Eddie the Eagle' Edwards, one of the UK's most well-known and best-loved Olympians. 
Lochaber Ideas Week 2018 is presented in partnership with Developing the Young Workforce West Highlands.
Michael will give a motivational talk based on his incredible experience of fighting to compete in the Calgary Winter Olympics 1988 as the UK’s unlikely ski-jumper. 
Kids tickets will be available on the door for £7 each (cash only) for ages 16 and under (ID may be asked for).
About Michael
The UK hadn't entered a competitor into ski jumping for 60 years but, where there's a will there's a way, and Michael earned the right to compete in the Winter Olympics against all the odds (and the wishes of the wintersports establishment).
He may not have won (he came last) but he became the stand-out star of the competition and a worldwide audience took him to their hearts because of his tenacity, bravery, positive attitude and good humour. 
His amazing story has gone on to inspire a whole new generation since the 2016 release of the smash-hit feel-good comedy, Eddie the Eagle film starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman. 
Come along to find out more about the man behind the ski mask and the legend that is 'Eddie the Eagle'!
