An evening with Annie Vernon

16th April, 2020

Come and join us for an evening with Olympian Annie Vernon who will be here at Pencarrow sharing with you some of the highs and lows of her career.

With nearly a decade at the top of Britain’s most successful Olympic sport, Annie has a proven track record in the cauldron of seven World Championships and two Olympic Games.

She became a World Champion for the first time in 2007 and this set the scene for an assault on the Beijing Olympics in 2008, where their crew of four attempted to be the first British women’s rowing team to become Olympic Champions. Leading until the final hundred metres of their final, they were overhauled by the Chinese crew to finish second. Their tears and grief on the podium were beamed by television cameras back to the UK and led to some tough questions when they returned – how can you be so dissatisfied and ungrateful with an Olympic silver medal?

Annie will be also signing copies of her latest book and answering any questions you have. The evening starts at 7.15pm in our beautiful drawing room. Tickets are £10 and includes refreshments. The proceeds from this evening will be towards our Fountain Appeal, which has been set up by the Friends of Pencarrow to get our beautiful Victorian fountain flowing again! Please give Rita a call to book your tickets on 01840 213499 or e-mail austen160@btinternet.com
