The Two Hundred: A day with The Guerillas
Manchester United might like to think they provide the finest sporting hospitality packages in the land, but they reckoned without the latest offering from Guerilla Cricket. Does the Bear have a sore head? What's Hendo like pre-rant? How does Nestle Boy survive on toast? Is Nakul actually an algorithm? Why is Grubby grubby? Now you can find out thanks to our unique Ashes Listener Experience, which takes you deep into the bosom of the world's most "irreverent but knowledgeable" (Lawrence Booth, Wisden Almanack 2019) worldwide cricket commentary.
For the knockdown price of £200* (10% discount for existing patreon.com or guerillacricket contributors), you can spend a day at Guerilla Towers in southeast London sampling an incredible mixture of earthly wonders based around our great game. This offer is open for all 25 days of the Tests. The Ashes Tests run from Aug 1-5, August 14-18, August 22-26, Sep 4-8 and Sep 12-16. See above for contact details. Because of the slightly shorter duration of the Test day, this will cost you just £180 (with deduction as above for Patreon members).
Don't just take our word for it, see what others said about the Guerilla Listener Experience during the World Cup:
"Not only are you given 'Access All Areas' privileges, allowing you to lift the veil on the behind-the-scenes wizardry and shenanigans, you are thrust into the limelight of live broadcasting in both sound and vision. A thrilling experience that will leave memories of great folks and good fun that will last a lifetime. Great value for a unique day's entertainment." – @cbar2323
"Guerilla Cricket rekindled my love of cricket commentary. It is inclusive, lively, irreverent, and infused with a love for the game. Cricket broadcasting isn't easy but the Guerillas make it so for you, easing you in so gently you scarcely remember you're on air. And there's so much more. The drink, the food, the gifts, the drink, the bonhomie of the green room, the drink... I count the Guerilla Experience as one of my most cherished experiences. It fulfilled a lifelong dream, and was also a bloody good day out. I can not recommend it highly enough." -@akaarthurshire
"If you're thinking about going for the Guerilla Cricket Experience, then go for it. You won't regret it. You get to spend a day watching cricket in the company of some of the most knowledgeable cricket fans you'll find, and they'll treat you to all manner of delicious Guerilla-style goodies. The commentary side is scary but it's so much fun, and you're surrounded by experts who'll help you out if you have trouble." – @spicygoldenduck
"Visit the nerve centre of the cricket commentary rebels where you will be plied with pastry, beer, and stories of how our heroes bring cricket to the masses despite the best efforts of the establishment. Have a go at commentary and you'll realise just how skilled the Guerillas are as you stare tongue-tied at the screen." – @lastlegsbaku
