Jonathan Agnew (Aggers) is an incredibly popular choice as an after-dinner Cricket speaker, his personality, eloquence and iconic status not only make for entertaining and interesting presentations, but also draw large audiences. Aggers is one of the mainstays of Test Match Special with his expressive, engaging and well-informed approach to commentating. Famously, his leg-over piece of commentary with Brian Johnston was voted ‘the most memorable piece of sports broadcasting’ by BBC listeners.
Charlie Dagnall (Daggers) is a much-loved speaker with many entertaining stories about his time on the field, as a Warwickshire and Leicestershire County Cricketer, and his time in the commentary box working with the Test Match Special team. Daggers also presents 5 Live’s NFL American Football show and hosts his own Drivetime Radio show, where he has interviewed the likes of Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Charles Kennedy.
Dave Bryon, former MD of the airline bmibaby, writer, comedian, raconteur and very fine gentleman, will be your Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
