Richard Herring - March News

Hello all
Here's what I'm up to in March.

On Friday 5th March I will be appearing as a guest on Roundtable, hosted by Andrew Collins, BBC 6 Music, 6-7pm (rpt Saturday 9-10am and thereafter available under "listen again" on the website for 7 whole days).

I am doing two Talking Cock shows this month. Apart from one last performance in Greenwich in April these will almost certainly be the last chances to see this show, as I will be working up a new idea for the Edinburgh Fringe.
BRECON - On 13th March at 8pm I will be at Teatr Brycheiniog, Canal Wharf, Brecon, Powys, LD3 7EW. Tickets £12. Box Office 01874 611622
CHELTENHAM - On Sunday 21st March 2004 at 7.30pm I will be at the Everyman Theatre, Regent St,Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 1HQ. Box Office 01242 572573. Tickets £12.

Over the last couple of months I have been training to row so that I could take part in "The Other Boat Race" in which a team of obscure media figures who went to Oxford University, race a team of obscure media figures who went to Cambridge University. You can read about most of it in "Warming Up" on my website. The five part documentary that was made about this experience will be showing on BBC3 from 22nd-26th March (Don't have the times, check listings magazines nearer the time). Then on the 27th March there will be a 90 minute version of this documentary on BBC1, which will include the race itself, so you can then find out if we won or lost. It was a very exciting race.

This month also sees my final burst of intensive training for the London Marathon, which will be taking place on Sunday 18th April. If you haven't yet sponsored me, then please do so. All the money goes to SCOPE which is a great charity. Any donation however small or large will be gratefully accepted. You can sponsor me on-line at
or if you don't have a credit card, please send cheques made payable to SCOPE to Richard Herring, c/o Avalon, 4a Exmoor St, London, W10 6BD.
Don't leave it til the last minute - Do it now! I am over half way to my £5000 target already.
