Sat 17 Mar My Dear Old Thing


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!

He's starting his tour with a special preview show in the Flint Halls at
Folkington Manor.

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’.

Henry’s Sunday Times Bestseller, Radio 4 Book of The Week and Top 10 Bestselling Biography of 2017 ‘Over and Out’ will be available to purchase on the night. He will be signing copies after the show.
