After a sell-out live tour in 2022, the Test Match Special team are back on the road – and this time, the Ashes are at stake!

Join Jonathan ‘Aggers’ Agnew and Australia bowling legend Glenn McGrath for an evening of stories, memories, and predictions ahead of a massive Ashes summer.

Glenn McGrath spent much of the 1990s and 2000s tormenting England’s batsmen, and now you have a rare chance to hear from one of the greatest fast bowlers the game has seen. From whitewashes down-under to playing with Shane Warne, he’ll reveal all – and he might just talk through stepping on that ball at Edgbaston in 2005!

Jonathan Agnew is the voice of cricket. A veteran of 16 Ashes series behind the microphone, Aggers has witnessed some of the most remarkable games the sport has ever seen. You’ll hear the inside story of England’s wins in 2005 and 2010/11, and be taken into the commentary box for THAT game at Headingley in 2019.

Plus, you’ll have your chance to ask the duo anything you like – when it comes to the Ashes, it doesn’t get bigger or better than this.

Running time approx.: 45 / Interval 20 / 45
