My Life; My story: The inspirational no holds barred life story of the nation's most heroic figure

It was the conflict of a generation and one that many people will never forget. On the 2nd of April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands with the aim of recapturing them through a claim that they had inherited the islands from Spain in the 1800's.


The Islands, which had been in control of Great Britain for nearly 150 years, became a battle ground and the UK Government were quick to defend both the Islands and it's inhabitants. What was to follow saw 655 Argentine Soldiers and 255 British Serviceman slain.

Amongst those who were sent to the conflict was Simon Weston OBE.

In one of the most horrific moments of the conflict the HMS Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentine planes, aboard at the time was Simon. This was a 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. Today he has become one of the most recognised faces of the conflict and for the first time ever Simon is taking to the stage to tell his no holds barred story.

Guiding him from that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald. Former Sky News Anchor and close Friend. There will be highs and lows, and questions that only David can ask, with answers only Simon can give, but the shocking truth of the conflict, that day, and the years that followed will be shared.

The show, created and produced by Devon Based BIB Productions LTD is continuing its preview tour by visiting Bristol’s very own Trinity Centre on Sunday 18th January.

Tickets start from £14.50 with special rates available for services personnel, students and over 60’s and are available on line or in person from Bristol Ticket Shop.


Simon Weston; My Life, My Story is a truly inspirational show about one man's 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.
