An evening of cricketing hilarity with Aggers

Where: Cheltenham Town Hall

When: Tuesday, September 24, 7.30pm

Following a thrilling summer of international cricket, BBC Radio's voice of cricket Jonathan Agnew will have plenty to reflect on when he comes to Cheltenham Town Hall next week.

Since the home Ashes series in 2013, the Evenings with Aggers shows have been delighting audiences and selling out theatres all over England.

Aggers learnt his craft under the tutelage of Brian Johnston, emerging from the notoriety of the gloriously funny 'leg over' incident (yes, you will hear that on the evening!) to become BBC Radio's cricket correspondent.

In his unparalleled View From The Boundary sessions, he has interviewed folk from all walks of life, including rock stars, film legends, writers, comedians, two prime ministers and a boy wizard!

His consummate skills on air have proved electric on stage as he has taken on his prickly commentating partner Geoffrey Boycott, spin legend Graeme Swann, Indian's 'Little Master' Sunil Gavaskar, bad boy of English cricket Phil Tufnell and the gloriously eccentric David 'Bumble' Lloyd.

Join Aggers in his solo show as he takes us on a trip down memory lane, recounting tales from a wonderful and entertaining career on the field and in the box, with film footage, audio clips and photographs on the big screen.

Evenings With Aggers are always fun, fiery and full of surprises! They are fascinating, hilarious, no-holds-barred evenings for cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike.

The event is being run in aid of the Professional Cricketers' Association and money raised will go to the organisation's Professional Cricketers' Trust.

There are just a few tickets left for the evening - see the Town Hall website for details.
