An Evening with Geoffrey Boycott

Details

To mark the 40th anniversary of his 100th Hundred, Scarborough Spa will host an Evening with Geoffrey Boycott on Saturday 6 May 2017.

Presented by BBC Look North’s Harry Gration, he will look back at the career of Boycott in the presence of the Yorkshire legend on an evening that is guaranteed to entertain lovers of The White Rose and England cricket.

The ‘Greatest Living Yorkshireman’ will say exactly what he thinks about the current state of cricket and many other subjects he has hit out on in his latest autobiography, on air and in print.

The evening with be full of hilarious anecdotes; there will be an opportunity for the audience to put their own questions and the evening will be fun, fiery and full of surprises.

As part of the show Geoffrey will be sharing some unseen footage from the BBC archives, rare photographs from his private collection and clips of the many highlights of his career including his First Test Match hundred, his 100th hundred and surpassing Garry Sobers' world record aggregate of Test runs in Delhi in December 1981.

There will also be a behind the scenes look of his house in Cape Town.

Geoffrey scored 32,570 runs for Yorkshire at an average of 57.85 including 103 centuries and went on to become the first Englishman to average over 100 runs per innings in 1971 when he scored 2,503 runs.

Throughout his international career he scored 151 first class centuries which is the 5th highest and on the 11 August 1977 he scored his 100th century at Headingley, Leeds, during the 4th Test Match England v Australia. He became the 18th batsman in history of the game to perform such a feat, but was the first man to achieve this distinction in a Test Match.
