‘My dear old thing’
With the cricket season well underway, a lucky audience at Prior Park College enjoyed an evening with Henry Blofeld, sports journalist, broadcaster and legend of the box, for an evening of Test Match Special memories.
‘Blowers’, as he is known to his fans, fresh from ‘close of play’ of Test Match Special, shared stories of life in the commentary box, cricket tours around the world and touching memories of his final test commentary at Lord’s cricket ground.
He finished the evening signing copies of his new book Over and Out: My Innings of a Lifetime with Test Match Special.
Money raised from the evening contributed towards Prior Park College’s new cricket scoreboard at the Bury Sports Centre.
