‘Aggers with young friends’ with special guest Jonathan Agnew, MBE

The Travers Foundation charity is delighted to announce its latest fund-raising event – ‘Aggers With Young Friends’ on Wednesday 16th October at Melton Mowbray Theatre.

Ex-professional cricketer and popular broadcaster Jonathan Agnew MBE will take to the stage to share stories from his wonderfully entertaining career, both on the field and in the commentary box.

A very familiar voice to all those who’ve been tuning in to the recent World Cup and Ashes Series’ coverage, Aggers’ will also appeal to those who have perhaps yet to be converted to the joys of hearing leather against willow!

Aggers will share his thoughts, ideas, hints and tips on how local talented youngsters can make their dreams come true and fulfil their potential in their chosen fields.

The evening of entertainment starts with local young talent including the award-winning Caroline McManus School Of Irish Dancing from Bottesford; gold and silver medal winners Charlie Grant and Spencer Ball from Leicester Legends Amateur Boxing Club; and the emerging singing sensation Kara Hamer, whose debut CD ‘Kara’ is now available.

Starting at 7.30pm, the show will be compered by William Sharman, himself a British, European and Commonwealth-medal winning 110m hurdler and a Trustee of The Travers Foundation.

Tickets cost from £18.50 (including Box Office charge) and are available from: or by calling: 01664 851111.

The Travers Foundation is a volunteer-run charity which helps 13 to 30-year olds living in Northamptonshire, Rutland or Leicestershire improve their skills in sports, the creative arts and the performing arts.
