Back by popular demand, Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter return to Lincoln next month with more tales from behind the scenes at the national institution that is Test Match Special

Join them on a trip down memory lane to discover fascinating untold stories from the 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.

The show will help you get the ‘direct from the booth’ insights on the Ashes and the resulting and continuing turmoil in English cricket.

But this show is more than just about cricket.

It is about memories, stories and recollections of extraordinary characters met and places visited while covering cricket for the BBC in places like India, Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa and the Caribbean.

Henry ‘my dear old thing’ Blofeld is one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters and bastion of the cricketing fraternity.

He is as famous for his hilarious observations of objects like buses and passing pigeons, which he usually comments upon while on air, often as the bowler is running to bowl the next ball, as he is for his astute commentary.

Peter Baxter, meantime was the brains behind TMS for more than 34 years as the show’s producer.

During most of the time, he was responsible for trying to keep Henry and his cohorts in the commentary box in order whenever things went amusingly off topic.

Together they offer a hilariously entertaining show for both cricket and non-cricket lovers alike.

They are at the LPAC in Lincoln on Sunday, 11th October.
