With the first Test of the 2017-18 Ashes cricket tour about to get underway in Brisbane, Australia, Birmingham City University presents a unique event with England cricketing legend and Ashes-winner, Ashley Giles.

Giles – joined by Jim Troughton, former England international and current Warwickshire first-team coach – will talk about Ashes series past and preview the forthcoming tour.

Held in The Recital Hall of the new Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in the centre of Birmingham and hosted by Sky Sports’ Johnny Phillips, this is your chance to hear about England’s historic 2005 Ashes win and Giles and Troughton’s thoughts on England’s prospects in the upcoming series.

‘Ashes Talk’ forms part of Birmingham City University’s City Talks series. The series features a public programme of high profile speakers who share their views and insights on a range of topics, promoting the University's ambition and aim of being a ‘university without walls’. Further information about the series and upcoming talks.

*The talk will start promptly at 7.30pm. We ask that guests arrive for 7.15pm to ensure that the talk starts on time.
