An Evening with Aggers & Tuffers

Theatre Royal, New Road, Brighton

Sunday December 2, 7.30pm

Tickets £13-£29.50

Aggers is, of course, cricket broadcaster and former cricketer Jonathan Agnew and Tuffers is Phil Tufnell, the bad boy of English cricket in the 1990s, but the best spinner – left-arm or otherwise – as well. Known as The Cat because of his love of dressing-room naps and rarely seen without a beer and a fag, Tufnell has always been something of a folk hero. Since retiring, he has carved out a successful TV career, appearing in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, The Jump, Strictly Come Dancing, and he is Matt Dawson’s opposing team captain in BBC’s long-running series A Question of Sport. This is an entertaining no-holds-barred evening and you can tweet Aggers with your own questions.
