Cricket fans will be bowled over when one of the sport’s top commentators brings his solo show to St Albans.

Join Jonathan ‘Aggers’ Agnew at The Alban Arena on Monday, April 8 as he takes the audience on a trip down memory lane.

The doyen of Test Match Special will be recounting tales from a wonderful and entertaining innings on the field and in the commentary box, with film footage, audio clips and photographs on the big screen.

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

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.

He is now touring his solo show. 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, and there will be an opportunity for the audience to tweet Aggers with their own questions.

The event is being run in aid of the Professional Cricketers’ Association and the night will raise money which will go to the organisation’s PCA Benevolent Fund.
