Ten years on from his black armband protest during the Cricket World Cup, former Zimbabwe cricketer Henry Olonga will be in Somerset in March to talk about his sporting career and faith – and perform some of his music.
During An Evening With Henry Olonga, presented by 2K Plus International Sports Media, Henry will reflect on his time as the first black player to represent Zimbabwe. He will talk about how he and current England coach, Andy Flower wore black armbands during a Cricket World Cup match against Namibia to protest against “the death of democracy” in Zimbabwe.
He will also perform songs from his album, Aurelia and afterwards sign copies of his book, Blood, Sweat and Treason.

Tables of eight are available for £120 when one guest may be nominated to attend a VIP Reception with Henry Olonga, hosted by Rt Rev Mark Rylands, Bishop of Shrewsbury.
