Blowers and Baxter promise to bowl you over with commentary box tales
Published 17/03/14



CRICKET broadcasting legend Henry Blofeld is teaming up with his Test Match Special producer Peter Baxter for an evening of anecdotes from the commentary box and beyond.

The duo are on tour with an evening of stories and tales, taking in a number of local theatres this spring and summer, including a date at the Kenton Theatre on Saturday, June 21.

Hear tall tales from across the globe with exclusive behind-the-scenes adventures about the characters that make Test Match Special so special and discover the extraordinary escapades of players both on and off the pitch.

Comedian Alan Davies has described the show as “a memorable evening with a faint whiff of linseed oil about it”.

The show started life at the Edinburgh Fringe festival last year and has been so popular that a new, updated version has been written, fresh from Australia with “direct from the booth” insights on the Ashes 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 Test Match Special for more than 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.

• Blofeld and Baxter is at the Kenton Theatre on Saturday, June 21. Box office (01491) 575698 or visit www.kentontheatre.co.uk

The show will also be at a number of other local theatres including the Wycombe Swan on Wednesday, June 11 and at Norden Farm in Maidenhead on Tuesday, July 15. For details visit www.memoriesoftestmatch special.com
