Not Out!: Dickie Bird
An evening with a national treasure! Dickie Bird MBE is not only the world’s most famous and best-loved cricket umpire, he is also one of the most entertaining public speakers of our time.
Join Dickie for an evening full of anecdotes about the game he loves so much – and has served so well – with some fascinating behind the scenes glimpses of cricket around the world over the past forty years. There will also be an opportunity for audience questions.
For over a quarter century, Harold Dennis 'Dickie' Bird has been a household name in international cricket, officiating at 66 Test matches and 92 one-day internationals. Dickie’s career started in county cricket, not as an umpire, but as a batsman, for Yorkshire and then Leicestershire; invaluable experience for all those subsequent years standing behind the stumps, or at square leg. He umpired his final Test at an emotional day at Lord's in 1996 - the two teams - India and England - formed a 'guard of honor' as he came out, and he received a standing ovation from the crowd. Dickie, an emotional man was in tears. After a few more county matches in England, he declared his innings over in 1998.
