An Evening with Simon Weston

Join us for an evening with Simon Weston. Simon will be joined on stage by his friend and BBC Radio Devon presenter, David Fitzgerald. They will talk about Simon’s life before, during and after the catastrophic events on board the RFA Sir Galahad in the Falklands in 1982.


In his first appearance of this kind in Exeter, Simon will take to the stage with David, who is himself a charismatic speaker and mid morning presenter on BBC Radio Devon.

On his website, Simon says, “In 1982 I was aboard the Sir Galahad when it was destroyed at Bluff Cove in the Falklands Islands. I suffered 46% burns to my body and went on to have numerous operations. However, I was one of the lucky ones. I survived. Since then it has been my privilege to have been invited to speak at events across the UK and abroad. I have met some wonderful people and had the opportunity to have been involved in many worthwhile charities. ”

Simon is described as an inspiring and moving speaker who is humorous and engaging. His enthusiasm is infectious and he is a master in topics such as:

Overcoming adversity
Accepting change
Dealing with challenges
Liking the person you are
Inspiring others

Simon is a highly sought after speaker and spaces are limited at the event.
