78 Retired - The Farewell Tour: Henry Blofeld
Henry ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld has hung up his microphone after 50 years commentating on international cricket.
The cherished golden voice of cricket has decided to celebrate by touring the country with his brand new show, jam-packed full of unheard anecdotes from on and off the pitch, as well as stories from the TMS box not allowed on the radio!
Don’t miss the chance to wave a bat in honour to the last bastion of the original Test Match Special team; the team who made it the much-loved programme it is today. The summers of cricket will never be the same without our ‘Dear Old Thing’.
The bubbly, boisterous world of Blowers knows no full stops. He is best known as a cricket commentator on BBC Radio 4's Test Match Special and BBC Radio 5 Live. He even occasionally turns up on Channel 4's 'Countdown' programme and is an amusing after dinner speaker. His idiosyncratic form of commentary is unique. His one-man shows have sold out across the UK, including the Royal Albert Hall. His stories about Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Clive Dunn and others have brought the house down.
