An Evening with Henry Blofeld – CANCELLED

Please note this event has been cancelled until further notice

Henry Blofeld OBE

When it comes to the world of sports journalism and broadcasting, there are few figures as well known or as well loved as Blowers. Henry began his career in 1963 reporting on the England tour to India for The Guardian and went on to become a regular fixture on TMS between 1972 and 2017. With decades spent behind the broadcast mic, Henry has a wealth of tales from which to draw and at this event you can expect to hear some of those stories delivered in his inimitable style.
