Being confined to the pavilion for the past couple of seasons has given Henry time to reconnect with his Norfolk roots and reflect on a truly extraordinary life. This reflection inspired the online film, *At Home With Henry, *and this new theatre show.

In *My Dear Old Things*, Blowers recalls his days as a young England hopeful, how an Eton bus knocked him off his stride - and his bike - recoiling from a career in the City to work as a cricket journalist before finding his way into the TMS box.

There are hilarious tales of Johnners, Arlott and other larger-than-life characters in the box and on tour with England. Henry also has plenty of hysterical stories from his post-retirement appearances on *Would I Lie to You?* and *The Real Marigold Hotel.*

Backed by film and rare personal pictures on our big screen,* My Dear Old Things* is an absolute treat for the cricket connoisseur and a wonderfully engaging evening for all.
