Three former Nottinghamshire and England legends are starring in a live event that will take place on the eve of the Royal London One-Day International between England and the West Indies at Trent Bridge in September.

Derek Randall, Chris Broad and Eddie Hemmings chat with host Simon Hughes, editor of event hosts The Cricketer magazine and Channel 5 broadcaster.

The evening, held at the Poppy and Pint pub in Lady Bay on Wednesday 20 September (7pm start), is set to recollect past Ashes feats and to look forward to the forthcoming series in Australia, a first Ashes defence under Joe Root’s captaincy.

It will be the first Cricketer Live event to be held outside of London, with guests invited to pose their questions to the panel as they discuss:

  • Recollections of England’s Ashes campaigns in the 70s, 80s and 90s
  • Randall on the Centenary Test and facing Lillee and Thomson in their pomp
  • Broad on the hugely successful ’86-87 tour, a team journalist Martin Johnson declared had three things wrong with them: "They can't bat, they can't bowl, and they can't field."
  • Hemmings on falling five runs short of an Ashes century and taking on Australia in a World Cup Final at Eden Gardens
  • Memories of county cricket: winning trophies for Notts under legendary skipper Clive Rice.

The event will finish at 8.30pm. The bar will be open before and after the debate, with guests invited to come early and have a drink or stay late and continue the debate with the panellists.

Tickets cost £25 (The Cricketer subscribers are entitled to a £5 discount - please contact to receive your discount code).
