Hello My Dear Old Things!
The bubbly, boisterous world of Blowers knows no full stops. His idiosyncratic form of cricket commentary is unique. His one-man shows - he even played at the Albert Hall - has packed people into theatres all round the country. His stories about Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Clive Dunn and others have brought the house down.
BLOFELD & BAXTER: MEMORIES OF TEST MATCH SPECIAL
Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter invite you to join them for trip down memory lane to discover the untold stories of the Test Match Special commentary box and beyond. Tall tales from across the globe, with a few references to cricket, hear the extraordinary escapades of players and commentators from the 1970’s to present day. This is your invitation to hear the exclusive behind-the-scenes adventures from Brian Johnson to Tuffers. Anecdotes from both on and off the pitch, this is a gloriously funny show for the both the cricket and non-cricket lover alike.
HOT OFF THE PRESS: BLOFELD & BAXTER: MEMORIES OF TEST MATCH SPECIAL: THE AUSTRALIAN ROADTRIP
Blowers and Backers are donning their cork hats and heading down under for their Australian Roadtrip. Fresh from the commentary box at this year’s Ashes expect ‘direct from the booth’ insights and of course the chance to quiz these stalwarts of cricketing fraternity.
Henry “ My Dear Old Thing” Blofeld is one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters and bastion of the Cricketing community. He is as notorious for his hilarious observations as he is astute cricket commentary. Peter Baxter was the brain behind TMS for over 34 years; the man tasked with the unenviable position of corralling Henry and his cohorts around the world.
Tim Lane, the former ABC commentor and Australia’s #1 AFL expert will keep Blowers and Backers in check. Adding his unique Aussie humour to the evening he will make sure the two Poms do not have things all their own way.
Tickets for all the shows are on sale now - see the Events Page for full show details.
