One night only in London's West End! Following a sell-out 28 date UK tour, a BBC Radio 4 show and a return season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter invite you to join them for a behind the scenes exclusive of what makes TMS so special. Hear tall tales from across the globe from Brian Johnston to Jonathan Agnew and discover the extraordinary escapades of players both on and off the pitch. They will regale you with even more untold stories from memory lane and offer 'direct from the booth' insights from the Ashes and a summer of 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.
