Henry Blofeld is widely respected as the voice of Test Match Special ‘Blowers’, brings his wit and wisdom to the stage once again at Beccles Public Hall and Theatre.

For many Henry burbling commentaries provide a pleasingly onomatopoeic backdrop to a day's cricket, and his frequent gaffes and misidentifications merely add to that charm. He is keen to stress though that it’s not all cricket, in fact most of it isn’t and that every show is different. So, even if you’ve been before you can be sure that it’ll never be the same twice.

“People gather around afterwards in the foyer and say, ‘We had no idea it was like this. We thought it was a cricket show.’ But it’s not. And if you think you’re going to learn how to play a forward defensive, you’ll be sadly disappointed.”

Instead, the talk is based, in the loosest sense, on Henry’s life story, although there’s time for as many after-dinner anecdotes and meandering digressions as there is in a Test Match Special rain break.

The show itself is very tongue-in-cheek and Henry spends a lot of time poking fun at himself and subjects veer from intergalactic travel, to horticulture to mountaineering. Audiences are always sure of an evening of great tales from this quintessential Englishman.

Presented in association with Clive Conway Productions.
