Hit a Six with tickets to see legendary cricket commentator and broadcaster Henry Blofeld OBE, in his brand-new show in Crewe next month.
Famed for his plummy tones and all-round good humour, ‘Blowers’ brings My Dear Old Things, to Crewe Lyceum Theatre on Thursday September 8, to share tales of treasured moments, past and present, while looking ever forward to more fun and games as he returns to the crease.
In cricketing terms, Covid’s reign stopped play for a couple of seasons. Any another year, dear old Blowers would have knocked off a century of theatre shows, appeared on numerous TV programmes and regaled folk with his hilarious anecdotes at functions up and down our green and pleasant land.
However, being confined to the pavilion gave him the opportunity to spend more time with loved ones; reconnect with his Norfolk roots and to reflect on his truly extraordinary life.
Not one to idle away the time, Henry wrote two books, recorded a daily vodcast for last year’s tests and made a 90-minute film for streaming called, At Home With Henry. In these charming, honest and hilarious pieces, he shared reminiscences, cricketing memorabilia and life over the generations on the family estate.
Henry said: “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be getting back onto the stage after nearly three years! It will be a lively mixture of making the Real Marigold Hotel and almost 50 years with Test Match Special. We’ll have huge fun and I can’t wait to see you all there!”
One of Henry’s great gifts is to engage the cricket connoisseur as well as those who know nothing about the game, with his enchanting personality, warmth and humour. My Dear Old Things, is an absolute treat for the cricket connoisseur and a wonderfully engaging evening for all.
