Blofeld and Baxter, Sheffield City Hall
Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter cordially invite you to join them on a trip down memory lane to discover fascinating untold stories from the Test Match Special commentary box and beyond.
Hear tall tales from across the globe with exclusive behind-the-scenes adventures about the characters that make TMS so special and discover the extraordinary escapades of players both on and off the pitch.
Everyone from Brian Johnston to Tuffers gets a mention.
Fresh from Australia and brand new for 2014, get the ‘direct from the booth’ insights on the Ashes plus all the latest on the resulting and continuing turmoil in English cricket.
Henry ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld is one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters and a bastion of the cricketing community.
He is as notorious for his hilarious observations as he is for his astute cricket commentary.
Peter Baxter was the brain behind TMS for over 34 years, the man tasked with the unenviable position of corralling Henry and his cohorts around the world.
Together they offer a hilariously entertaining show for both cricket and non-cricket lovers alike.
Comedian and sports fan Alan Davies described it as “a memorable evening with a faint whiff of linseed oil about it”.
Perhaps with a lingering scent of chocolate cake as well.
The affable pair will be at the City Hall Memorial Hall tomorrow night.
