Geoffrey Boycott's colourful test cricket career is one which made headlines for decades and now there is a chance to hear from the man himself at Weston's Playhouse Theatre.

His iconic hundredth 100th in front of a Yorkshire crowd is something which will live in the memory of many, and this evening with Boycott may just make it seem even more special, with unseen BBC archive footage set to add to the atmosphere.

After 108 test match appearances for England, Boycott’s international career ended in 1982 when he was the leading test run scorer with more than 8,000 test match runs.

He will also share some of his own private images of the day – and his whole career – when he is welcomed to this seaside town.

The outspoken former cricketer is not backwards in coming forwards and his career was often clouded with controversy, so expect this to be the same with him revealing hilarious anecdotes and outlandish opinions.

Throughout the evening, there will also be a chance for members of the audience to ask questions about all things cricket.

No doubt he will answer honestly and leave you knowing just a little bit more about what it is really like to play cricket for your home county and country.

The show will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, on September 26 at 7.30pm. Doors will open 30 minutes before the performance.

Tickets, priced from £27 or £60 for a meet and greet ticket, are available by calling 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk
