There will be cricketing stories galore when Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter return to the area with their Memories Of Test Match Special show next month.

It can be seen at The Spot in Derby on Wednesday, September 17.

Back by popular demand, this pair of broadcasting legends will be offering up even more untold stories from behind the scenes at the much-loved radio institution that is TMS.

Following a critically acclaimed tour this spring, Henry Blofeld (pictured above left) and Peter Baxter (above right) have added some extra dates to their tour and would like to 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.

Direct from a season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the show will help you get the ‘direct from the booth’ insights 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.

Tickets to see Blofeld and Baxter: Memories Of Test Match Special are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
