Henry ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld hung up his microphone in 2017 after 50 years commentating on international cricket.
Enjoy a jam-packed evening of previously unheard anecdotes from on and off the pitch, as well as stories from the TMS box not allowed on radio!

Don’t miss the chance to wave your bat in honour of 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 have never been the same without our ‘Dear Old Thing’.

Henry Blofeld appearing at this event

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.
