Carlton Kirby: More Tales of the Tour De France

Eurosport’s lead cycling commentator Carlton Kirby, the Voice of Cycling, makes a welcome return to the Maddermarket for another evening of tall tales and frank opinions from his 25 years’ covering the sport.

Carlton will be sharing his front-row experiences from cycling’s big races – plus the lessons he’s learned from life on the road, as a bon viveur in budget hotels across Europe. He may also touch upon his early days in broadcasting, presenting the heartwarming/bizarre ‘And Finally…’ items on Look East

Carlton Kirby is in the tradition of great character commentators like Murray Walker, Henry Blofeld and Sid Waddell. He has been in the commentary box for a golden age of British cycling and the evening will also include stories of his not-always-happy dealings with British stars from Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome to Mark Cavendish.

Carlton will be in conversation with former Procycling magazine writer Duncan Steer.

Carlton will be also be signing copies of his new book ‘Sticky Bottle’.

This is a chance to see one of TV’s most entertaining commentators and raconteurs in an intimate venue. Carlton’s last show at the Maddermarket sold out quickly so do please book early to avoid disappointment.
