An Evening with Geoffrey Boycott

Boycott's 100th Hundred - The 40th Anniversary Tour

11th August 1977, Headingley. With a century in each of his two recent first class matches, one on his recall to the England side and the other for Yorkshire, the stage was set for a fairytale finale. Could Boycott record his 100th hundred in front of his adoring home county crowd?

Well, you know the answer and Geoffrey will be sharing some unseen footage from the BBC archives and some rare photographs from his private collection in this brand new show.  

 The ‘Greatest Living Yorkshireman' will say exactly what he thinks (what else?) about the current state of cricket and many other subjects he has hit out on in his latest autobiography, on air and in print. The show is peppered with hilarious anecdotes; there will be an opportunity for the audience to put their own questions and the evening will be fun, fiery and full of surprises!

 The event is being run in aid of the Professional Cricketers’ Association and we are raising money which will go to the organisation’s Benevolent Fund.

 

“If you take all the people I have worked with, Boycott is a mile ahead of any of them, he really is. I rate him that highly. His content is flawless.” 

Jack Bannister, ex-cricketer and TMS commentator

 

“It’s lucky he wasn’t a politician otherwise he might have blown up the world!”

Malcolm Tate, childhood friend of Geoffrey Boycott
