Yorkshire Stars Set For A Question Of Sport Live
There will be plenty of top-class Yorkshire sporting talent on show when BBC A Question of Sport’s biggest-ever live tour hits the county.
Host Sue Barker and team captains Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson head to Hull Bonus Arena on Friday September 17. And that’ll be followed by a night at Sheffield City Hall on Sunday September 19. Then, on November 28 they arrive at Leeds First Direct Arena.
“Thrilling live environment”
Among the guest stars joining Sue, Matt and Phil in Yorkshire will be local Olympians Nile Wilson, Bryony Page and Jack Laugher. Former Leeds United star Danny Mills joins in, as does cricket hero Ryan Sidebottom.
And there are more star-names lined up too. Superbike legend Carl Fogarty and Paralympic Games great Dame Sarah Storey are confirmed gusts. Former England cricket all-rounder Dominic Cork and Euro Tour golfer Sophie Walker are taking part too. Then athletes Kelly Sotherton and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey are also confirmed among the line-ups.
A Question of Sport Live is the perfect way for fans to see the hit show up close in a thrilling live environment. The live shows follow the TV format, featuring many of the rounds and challenges fans know and love. And it’ll be a fun-packed and joyous lap of honour for Sue, Matt and Phil too. They stepped down from the hit BBC TV show earlier this year.
The last tickets for this unmissable show are available from ticketmaster.co.uk. And it’s A Question of Sport’s first live tour in more than a decade.
A Question of Sport Live is brought to you by Cuffe and Taylor, Live Nation and Simon Fielder Productions in association with BBC Studios. Ben Hatton, Director of Theatre Touring for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “This tour has been two years in the planning. So we cannot wait for these unmissable shows to happen.
“We are delighted to be able to announce a host of sporting favourites – including many world champions, Olympians and household names – will be joining Sue, Matt and Phil. Demand for tickets has been truly phenomenal so I would advise any fans to not delay in getting theirs.”
