Boycott-&-Aggers-RESIZED

THE DYNAMIC DUO ARE BACK!
OUT OF THE ASHES – AN EVENING WITH BOYCOTT AND AGGERS
CONGRESS THEATRE, EASTBOURNE
Tuesday 8 October, 7.30pm

Described as the Lennon and McCartney of cricket broadcasting, Jonathan Agnew MBE and the belligerent Geoffrey Boycott OBE are back on stage for an entertaining evening of wickedly funny anecdotes that will, as ever, be fun, fiery and full of surprises at the Congress Theatre, Tuesday 8 October with An Evening With Boycott And Aggers.

Aggers and Boycott are key figures in the world of cricket, both as former professional players and now as world-renowned commentators on the game. For this entertaining evening you don’t have to be a huge cricket fan to appreciate their on stage dynamics, as anyone who has seen this duo on stage before knows, this show is so much more than just cricket chat.

Boycott has sworn revenge on Aggers after Jonathan’s hilarious wind-ups on Test Match Special. Come and see if this is the night he gets his own back!

Agnew has often been described as a ‘master broadcaster’, and his consummate skills on air in Test Match Special have proved electric on stage in previous Evenings With Aggers alongside his prickly commentating partner Geoffrey, spin legend Graeme Swann, Indian’s ‘Little Master’ Sunil Gavaskar, and the gloriously eccentric David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd. Fresh from commentating on England’s incredible world-cup victory, the Ashes, and with rave reviews for his An Evening With Aggers solo shows, Aggers together with Boycott will take the audience on a fabulous journey that’s guaranteed to be entertaining.

Producer, Simon Fielder said. “After Ben Stokes’ latest heroics, to say it’s been an extraordinary year for English cricket is a huge understatement. Geoffrey and Jonathan have been at the heart of our response to the incredible World Cup Final and the frankly unbelievable finale to the third test match. But you don’t have to be into cricket or up on your Wisden to enjoy the stories and humour of this highly entertaining evening; it really does appeal to anyone who enjoys a good yarn. Audiences have always had a thoroughly good time and it appeals to cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike.”

The shows are also raising money for the Professional Cricketers’ Trust (PCT) www.thepca.co.uk/trust/
