Memories of Test Match Special

— 24 July 2013

Yorkshire Cricket followers of Test Match Special would be interested to hear that two of the titans of UK cricket broadcasting Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter will be performing with a side-splitting show full of memories from within the Test Match Special commentary boxes all over the world at the Spa Theatre, Scarborough on Sunday September 1 and The Grand Opera House in York on Friday October 11.

It is comedy rather than cricket. They tell stories of the great and the good who have commentated and visited them on TMS. 

The fun spills out from the globe’s most famous grounds to taxis, buses, beaches, deserts and hotels. Anecdotes never before heard of the most legendary players, in every sense of the word, from the last forty years are finally aired. 

A sporting institution, Peter Baxter was the organising brain behind BBC Radio’s Test Match Special for 34 years and Henry “My Dear Old Thing” Blofeld, OBE is one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters. He has commentated on the show since 1972. 

Don’t miss this gloriously funny show, early booking is strongly recommended.
