Blofeld and Baxter Are Bowling Over to The Lyric London; MEMORIES OF TEST MATCH SPECIAL Tour Dates Added

Following a critically acclaimed tour this Spring, Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter 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.

Brand new for 2014 and direct from a season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the show will help you get the '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 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.
