GRAEME SWANN'S GREAT BRITISH SPIN OFF WITH HENRY BLOFELD - THE SECOND INNINGS

Following on from their hit 2016 tour, Graeme Swann, England’s greatest ever spin bowler and cricket’s best loved commentator, Henry Blofeld, are back by popular demand!

Who better to discuss the trials and tribulations of Swanny’s illustrious career than the man who commentated on it every step of the way, and who better for Henry to pass on his pearls of wisdom to after 47 years in the TMS commentary box.

Expect the sprinkler, expect red trousers, expect a review of the summer’s cricket, and expect to be laughing! This is an unmissable show full of surprises, anecdotes, impressions and more. One for all sports lovers alike.

BLOFELD & BAXTER - ROGUES ON THE ROAD

Blowers and Backers are back again by popular demand!  The two rogues are doing a handful of special Spring performances following on from their hit 2016 tour, ‘Rogues on the Road’ – crammed full of even more wonderful (and occasionally outrageous) anecdotes from two extensive careers.

Henry ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld is one of Britain’s most loved and recognisable broadcasters, while legendary producer of TMS Peter Baxter has been corralling lost passports, misplaced visas, and errant broadcasters for over 35 years.

Bastions of the beloved Test Match Special with over 80 years in the commentary box and touring the globe between them, Henry and Peter have some tales to tell.

They’ve seen plenty of shenanigans, so come ready to be shocked and entertained by good men behaving badly.
