HENRY BLOFELD


78, retired

‘Blowers’ needs no introduction, having been a fixture in the cricketing world for over 65 years. (His first report of a match was written while still at Eton, and earned him a reprimand from the head for being rude about the opposing school!) 

Since then he has written countless, far better received, articles for newspapers and magazines, as well as a large number of books on the subject, including his latest, the bestselling autobiography Over and Out. 

He is of course best known for his iconic rumbustious delivery as a cricket commentator but his talk in Wedmore will extend way beyond the sport, revealing some hilarious and intriguing insights into many aspects of his fascinating life.
