  • Spend an Evening with Aggers & Tuffers

    Henry James

    EVER since the home Ashes series in 2013, Evenings with Aggers have been delighting audiences all over the country.

    Jonathan has had hugely successful nights with Geoffrey Boycott, Sunil Gavaskar and Graeme Swann. Now, for the second year running, Jonathan Agnew MBE teams up with his Test Match Special colleague Phil Tufnell, and the show visits Southport Theatre on Thursday, February 9.

    Tuffers was the Bad Boy of English cricket in the 1990s, but the best spinner - left-arm or otherwise - as well. He was known as The Cat because of his love of dressing-room naps and, rarely seen without a beer and a fag, Tufnell has always been something of a folk hero. Since retiring, he has carved out a successful TV career, appearing in reality shows such as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here (winner, 2003) and Strictly Come Dancing, and he is Matt Dawson’s opposing team captain of BBC’s long-running series, A Question of Sport.

    This is a fascinating, entertaining, no-holds-barred evening for cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike and there will be an opportunity for the audience to tweet Aggers with their own questions.

    An Evening with Aggers & Tuffers starts at 7.30pm.
