Cricket legends Tuffers and Aggers to host stage show of stories in Lancaster

Phil Tufnell and Jonathan Agnew

Two of cricket's most popular personalities will take to the stage for an evening of stories and humour in Lancaster.

Jonathan Agnew MBE and Phil Tufnell will bring their their popular stage show, An Evening With Aggers and Tuffers, to the Lancaster Grand on Thursday March 23.

The England Test Match bowlers-turned broadcasters are key figures in the world of cricket, both as former professional players and world-renowned commentators on the game. 

Tuffers, known as the bad boy of cricket as a charismatic spin bowler in the 1990s, but also for achieving great success on the pitch, earned himself the nickname ‘The Cat' because of his love of dressing room naps and has always been something of a folk hero.

Since retiring he has carved himself out a successful TV career appearing in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, The Jump, Strictly Come Dancing and as opposing team captain to Matt Dawson on the popular BBC TV show, A Question of Sport, as well as commentating on the BBC’s Test Match Special.

Former fast bowler Agnew has often been described as a 'master broadcaster’ for his consummate skills on radio's Test Match Special.

Producer, Simon Fielder said. “People coming to see this show always have a thoroughly good time. So many audience members have written to us to thank us for a great evening out.

"It appeals to cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike. You really don’t have to be into the sport to enjoy the stories and humour of this highly entertaining pair - the evening will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good yarn and having a laugh. That’s everyone, isn’t it?!”

The show will raise money for the Professional Cricketers' Trust (PCT), a fantastic charity supporting past and current players and their dependents during times of illness or hardship.

The show starts at 7.30pm Tickets are available here.
