Cricket pair are on the ball

Cricket fans are in for a real treat when An Evening With Aggers And Swanny takes place on Thursday, July 3, at the Royal Concert Hall, starting at 7.30pm.

The event will feature the highly entertaining double act of Jonathan Agnew and Graeme Swann with a huge array of cricket-related stories to tell.

Jonathan is the voice of cricket in this country to millions of the sport’s fans.

He has been the BBC’s cricket correspondent since 1991 and the fulcrum of BBC radio’s much-loved Test Match Special coverage.

Before that, he was a talented seam bowler for Leicestershire who played three test matches for England in 1984-85.

Graeme Swann started his career with Northamptonshire as an off-spinner and entertaining lower middle order batsman.

He moved to Nottinghamshire, spending the remainder of his career at Trent Bridge.

He also played 60 test matches for England. By the time of his sudden retirement during the winter, he had amassed 255 wickets, putting him sixth in the all-time list of England test wicket takers.

He is, by common consent, one of the biggest personalities in the modern game and will take to the stage in his adopted home city to entertain local cricket fans with an anecdote-packed evening.

Tickets are £21. Call for availability on 0115 989 5555.
