Eddie the Eagle will be visiting Chill Factore on the 24th July for a meet and greet

The former Olympian – real name Michael Edwards - shot to fame in 1988 when he became the first person to represent Great Britain in Winter Olympic ski jumping for 60 years. More recently, Eddie’s remarkable story hit the big screen in the eponymous film.

And now he is set to pay a visit to the UK’s longest indoor real snow slope, Chill Factore, at 11:30am on Sunday 24 July.

Eddie will do a Q&A with fans, before taking to the 180 metre slope alongside guests.

Morwenna Angove, CEO at Chill Factore, said: “Eddie the Eagle is synonymous with ski jumping, so naturally we’re thrilled to announce he will be joining us on the slope this July.

“While he may never have struck gold at the Olympics, it wasn’t through lack of effort, and we’re excited to hear his story before he takes to the slope.”
