An Evening with Henry Blofeld

  • The Plough Arts Centre

There is so much more to Henry Blofeld than the cozy old Test Match Special commentary box . No one has lived life more to the full.

Henry Blofeld is one of the world's best loved cricket commentators.  He enjoyed an aristocratic upbringing, including an Eton and Cambridge education, during which he displayed exceptional cricketing skills.  Following a near fatal accident he took up sports journalism and is best known for his descriptive performances on BBC Radio 4's Test Match Series.  

The bubbly, boisterous world of Blowers knows no full stops.  His idiosyncratic form of cricket  commentary is unique.  His one-man shows – he even played at the Albert Hall – have packed people into theatres all around the country.  His stories about Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Clive Dunn and others have brought  the house down.  

No one's views are more *****ly and earth-shatteringly funny. The pompous, the politically correct, the prancing popinjays on every platform of life, are kicked unceremoniously into touch. 'Elf an Safety are shaken until the pips squeak.

    As long as he doesn't get carried away with the pigeons and colour of people's shirts - IM IN!
