Alongside some the biggest names in sport, there will be other celebrities regaling the reader of their favourite anecdotes, including Tim Rice, David Frost, Mark Nicholas and well-established Lord's Taverners like Richard Stilgoe, Ronnie Corbett, Christopher Martin-Jenkins and Rory Bremner. Never before has such a wide range of talent from the worlds of sport and entertainment come together in such striking form. Their stories will provide a richly entertaining read for all the family, male and female, young and old, from the armchair viewer to the active participant.
