 David ‘ Bumble’ Lloyd in conversation with Rory Bremner on Cricket

An unmissable evening with the hugely popular cricket commentator David ‘Bumble’ in conversation with impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner on Cricket. David will relive some of the most exciting and remarkable periods in his life. Drawing on his new book, Around the World in 80 Pints, David will entertain us with stories from famous Ashes matches and Roses clashes, sharing the commentary box with Ian Botham and Shane Warne, and much else besides. This promises to be an evening which will be sure to appeal to anyone who shares Bumble’s unquenchable love for cricket – and life!

David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd was born in 1947 and played cricket for Lancashire and England between 1965 and 1985, winning nine Test caps, later going on to coach England in the 1990s. But it was as a hugely popular commentator and pundit that he achieved greatest acclaim, with his most recent book Last in the Tin Bath becoming a big Sunday Times bestseller.

Rory Bremner is widely regarded as Britain’s top satirical impressionist (‘a one-man opposition party’ Daily Telegraph) As a mimic, he’s provided definitive impersonations of PMs and Presidents fromMajor to Mandela, Blair to Brown, Clinton to Cameron and Bush to Trump. As himself, he’s been presenter, writer, quiz-show host, actor, translator and even (briefly) ballroom dancer. (Strictly, 2011. WTF?) He returns to prime-time TV in September 2018 as team captain in a new ITV series, The Imitation Game.

Born in Edinburgh on 6 April 1961, Rory was educated at Wellington College and Kings College London, where he gained a BA in French, German and imitating lecturers. He speaks French adequately, German inadequately, and enough Russian to impress you for 90 seconds (unless you’re Russian). By the time he’d graduated in 1984, he was already performing on the London stand-up circuit and at his native Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and got his first TV series with the BBC in 1986. In a TV career of over 30 years, he’s won numerous awards, including 3 BAFTAs for his long-running Channel 4 satire series Bremner Bird & Fortune, featuring Rory and the two Johns.
