On 13th September 2018 the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar plays host to an evening with two of England cricket’s most famous characters and Captains Graham Gooch and Mike Gatting.
The statistics speak for themselves, as two of England's greatest batsman Gooch and Gatting played a combined total of 197 Test Matches, scoring over 13,300 runs.
Graham Gooch was one of the most prolific run makers top-flight cricket has ever seen. After he retired in 1997, the statistician Robert Brooke calculated that Graham had scored 22,211 runs in List A cricket which, added to his 44,846 first-class runs, put him ahead of the great Jack Hobbs.
Mike Gatting was a natural, a point recognised by the England selectors when they sent him on tour as a 20-year-old, in 1977-78. But it would take seven more years, and 54 Test innings, before he made his first century with 136 in Bombay, an innings of such guts and determination that the British press broke its rule and applauded. Then there was no stopping him.
Graham and Mike will take a nostalgic look back on their illustrious careers with numerous antidotes from on and off the field of play; not to mention their opinions on the current state of English Cricket and the game in general.
The Wyllyotts Theatre will be open from 7pm with the main event starting at 8pm. At the half time tea interval there will be a raffle with some great prizes up for grabs. There is also a chance to ask Graham and Mike questions and to purchase a specially commissioned print which they will both sign on the night. It should be noted that the VIP session commences at 7pm.
Standard tickets are great value for money starting at just £13.50 and there is also an exclusive VIP package available for £49 which includes a front row seat, meeting the stars prior to the show, receiving a limited edition signed print and having your photograph taken with Graham and Mike.
With only a limited number of tickets available and to avoid disappointment it’s important to book now for what promises to be a fantastic night of entertainment for all sport enthusiasts.
