A SPIN off show featuring two cricketing favourites is coming to town.

Cricket legend and dancing aficionado Graeme Swann and national treasure Henry Blofeld will embark on a brand new UK tour, calling in at Weymouth Pavilion with Dancing Down the Wicket on Sunday, October 27.

This show follows on from the enormous success of their previous live shows The Great British Spin Off and The Great British Spin Off – The Second Innings.

With Graeme hot off the dance floor and Henry’s quick wit, storytelling and sparkling personality in equally good shape, Dancing Down The Wicket is set to be a rip-roaring, belly laughing evening of not to be missed entertainment.

The delectable duo will delve behind the scenes of everyone’s favourite dancing show, hear about Henry’s latest retirement antics and of course share their cricketing reviews and insights on 2019 including the Cricket World Cup, The Ashes and plenty, plenty more.

Graeme said: “What better way to celebrate the greatest ever summer of English cricket (hopefully!) than listening to the voice of cricket Henry Blofeld put his unique spin on things and me talk about coming an incredible seventh on Strictly!’’

Henry Blofeld said: “It will be great to have the old firm back in action – caught Blofeld, bowled Swann… What a way to go!’’

Graeme retired from professional cricket in 2013 after an illustrious career that sees him lie seventh on the list of England’s all-time wicket-takers.

Since 2014, Swanny has been a summariser for BBC Radio 5 Live’s Test Match Special. He was a regular on national television screens in 2018 as he reached the tenth week of Strictly Come Dancing with dance partner Oti Mabuse, sending the British public into raptures with some of his moves.

Henry Blofeld retired from international cricket commentary in June 2017 following a hugely celebrated 50 years behind the microphone. He has since released best-selling autobiography Over and Out (published by Hodder and Stoughton in 2017), enjoyed a total sell-out live tour with 78 Retired in Spring 2018, resulting in an additional string of sell-out dates for Autumn 2018, presented a four-part series for Classic FM called Blowers Around Britain, appeared on Would I Lie to You? (BBC One) and even recorded a sleep story for Calm.com.
