Catch cricket legend Chris Woakes on 19 May

Join England and Warwickshire cricketing legend Chris Woakes as he raises his game with TV presenter Miles Harrison in a very special Back in the Game Online Q&A on 19 May. It’s the latest in our unmissable series of sporting conversations, which have already seen some spellbinding encounters with stars including Emile Heskey, Gareth Farrelly, Jamie Heaslip and Chris Ashton.

Miles will be quizzing Chris about his past and future career, asking him about the upcoming Ashes, the returning India series, that famous World Cup final, and life behind the scenes as an international cricketer. As with the previous events, there will be the opportunity for you to submit your own questions in advance for possible inclusion on the evening. These should be emailed to nick@specialeffect.org.uk by 5pm on the 14 May 2021.

The £10 entry fee will go towards the continuing vital work of SpecialEffect as they help people with disabilities to have a better quality of life through technology.

The evening starts at 7:30pm and there are two ticket options: a standard ticket for £10 available here, or a beer package of eight amazing beers plus a ticket for £20 (plus a delivery charge) from our friends at the Wychwood Brewery. Click and Collect is also available.

A huge thank you to Miles and Chris, along with First Sight Media, Wychwood Brewery, Warwickshire Cricket Club, Limelight Interactive and the Twin Town Challenge for their support for the event.

CHRIS WOAKES is widely regarded as one of the greatest all-rounders in the game. In addition to playing top-flight cricket for Warwickshire County and Dehli Capitals, he was part of the England squad that won the 2019 World Cup in arguably the greatest final of all time. He is one of only five players to have his name on both honours boards at Lords.

MILES HARRISON is a renowned commentator who has worked for Sky Sports, ITV Sport and C4 Sport. Since 1994 Miles has been the voice of rugby across both domestic and international games.  He has become the regular go-to voice accompanying us as we watch rugby world cups, British and Irish Lions tours, Six Nations tournaments and European rugby championships, as well as domestic league coverage. Although rugby is his profession, his first sporting love is cricket.
