Throughout these cruises, enjoy a special ‘cricket theme’ programme headed up by TV presenter Nick Hancock (They Think It’s All Over). Watch big screen cricketing highlights; the Question of Cricket Challenge; ‘an audience with’, and a chance to informally meet some cricket legends in the popular Taverner’s Pub.
Your Host
Nick Hancock is a comedian, actor and presenter who is probably best known for hosting the comedy sports quiz ‘They Think It’s All Over’ alongside Gary Lineker and David Gower. He also devised and presented BBC TV’s ‘Room 101’ and has appeared in, and hosted, many other shows over the past 30 years. Nick’s passion for Sport and not being at home means that he is particularly delighted to be on board Columbus representing the Lord’s Taverners charity.

Devon Malcolm was one of England’s few genuinely fast bowlers of the 1990s. His best figures came against South Africa at the Oval in 1994. He was hit on the helmet whilst batting and when the South African fielders started to chuckle he unleashed one of the most hostile spells of bowling in the history of the game which resulted in figures of 9 for 57 and a convincing win for England.
Mike Gatting OBE joined Middlesex in 1974 and Captained them from 1983-1997 scoring over 50,000 1st Class runs in his career. He played 99 Tests and 92 One Day Internationals for England, captaining 23 Tests including the winning Ashes team in Australia in 1986-7.
