Cricket commentator Henry Blofeld heading out on tour to Nottingham Playhouse following inspiration
Being confined to the pavilion for the past couple of seasons thanks to covid gave cricket commentator Henry Blofeld time to reflect on a truly extraordinary life.
That inspired a show, which is coming to Nottingham Playhouse on Saturday, June 25.
In My Dear Old Things, Blowers recalls his days as a young England hopeful, how an Eton bus knocked him off his stride, recoiling from a career in the City to work as a cricket journalist before finding his way into the Test Match Special box.
It includes tales of Johnners, Arlott and other larger-than-life characters in the box and on tour with England.
It is backed by film and rare personal pictures.
