TEST Match Special stalwart Henry Blofeld comes to Hertford Theatre tomorrow (Friday) night for what promises to be an entertaining evening that will leave you shaken and a little stirred!

THERE is so much more to Henry Blofeld than the cosy old Test Match Special commentary box.

No one has lived life more to the full. No one’s views are more prickly and earth-shatteringly funny. The pompous, the politically correct, the prancing popinjays on every platform of life are kicked unceremoniously into touch.

Blowers’ immortal namesake, Ernst Stavros Blofeld – the guy who strokes the white pussy in the movies – may have been a figment of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming’s imagination, but Blowers the voice is flesh and blood.

He may not say “Mr Bond, you will die”, but his life has been fascinating and extraordinary.

In Shaken, not Stirred he reveals all, letting the audience into all sorts of secrets at the same time as producing some powerful and irresistible name-dropping.

With some great stories, it is uncomplicated fun and laughter which makes everyone feel a great deal better.

By the end, the entire audience is both shaken and stirred and positively itching for more.

The show is on for one night only at the Hertford Theatre on Friday at 7.45pm.

Tickets are £16, £14 concessions, and are available at the box office on 01992 531500.
