The commentator, known for his phrase “My Dear Old Thing” and occasional on-air bloopers will reminisce about his colourful career and the cricketing characters he has met when he appears at Melton Theatre on Wednesday, October 8.

The show, 7.30-10.30pm, will be jam-packed of unheard anecdotes from on and off the pitch as well as stories from the Test Match Special box not heard on radio.

Tickets are now on sale and cost £21. They can be bought from the box office on (01664) 851111 or by booking online at www.meltontheatre.co.uk
