FORMER England bowler Graeme Swann brings his Great British Spin Off to Clacton after unveiling dates for a new UK tour.

Swanny retired from the game in 2013 after an illustrious career that put him sixth on the list of England’s all-time wicket-takers.

He made his test debut in 2008 having broken into the England squad in 1999, played in three Ashes series wins and helped England become the number one test side in the world in 2011.

In the same year he became the top-ranked one day international bowler and was part of the England side that clinched a first major world title in winning the 2010 World Twenty20.

He is joined on stage by cricket’s best-loved commentator Henry Blofeld in what promoses to be a hilarious look back at one of the finest players to grace the game.

The brand new show will see the duo discuss the highs and lows that made Swanny one of English cricket’s most colourful characters, and saw him rise from international outsider to the world’s best spin bowler.

Henry was in the commentary box every step of the way, and will take Graeme to task with the charm and wisdom millions across the UK have become accustomed to during his 40 years on Test Match Special.

The Princes Theatre is one of just 16 venues lined up for this autumn tour.

The Great British Spin Off comes to Clacton on October 14. Tickets are £25 from the box office on 01255 686633.
