Henry Blofeld OBE, affectionately nicknamed "Blowers" will attend some of the cricket on the ice on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th February, and also attend the black tie dinner at Hotel Steffani in the evening.


Henry Calthorpe Blofeld was awarded an OBE in 2003 for his services to broadcasting, has established a reputation as a commentator with an accent, vocabulary and syntax that is quintessentially Old Etonian both in style and substance.


Cricket On Ice President, Mr. John Hallam, said "It is an honour & a pleasure to have 'Blowers' involved with COI. Unfortunately he won't be commentating on a match on this occasion, but we look forward to inviting him back to St. Moritz to do so at the Cresta Cricket Match in the summer."
