He will be at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre on Sunday,September 18.

Henry Blofeld.

Henry will share tales of treasured moments and people, past and present.

However, during the pandemic and being confined to the pavilion, so to speak, has given him the opportunity to spend more time with loved ones; to reconnect with his Norfolk roots and to reflect on his extraordinary life.

Not one to idle away the time, Henry has written two books, the  latest, Ten to Win, was published in September last year and his book, Over and Out, has been shortlisted for Cricket Book of the Year at the British Sports Book Awards.

He recorded a daily vodcast for last year’s test matches and made a 90-minute film for streaming called, At Home With Henry. 

In these charming, honest and hilarious pieces, he shared reminiscences, cricketing memorabilia and life over the generations on the family estate.

The event is being run in aid of the charity, Chance to Shine, that aims to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket.
