Ned Boulting's Marginal Mystery Tour: 1923 And All That

Presented by No Third Entertainments
City Varieties Music Hall

Ned Boulting returns again! But this time he’s 101 years too late for the 1923 Tour de France.

In his latest celebration of the greatest race on earth, Ned delves into the hidden mysteries of a roll of film from the 1923 Tour de France that fell into his possession during the Covid pandemic, and inspired his bestselling book 1923!

Part detective story, part murder mystery, part costume drama, part French farce, Ned weaves his own typically ridiculous story into the astonishing discoveries he makes about the hidden world of the 1923 Tour de France, its characters and tragedies, and ties it all together with the wild upheavals of Europe in-between the wars.

Along the way, in an evening’s odyssey, he draws a connection between the heroes of yesteryear and the champions of today, from Cavendish to Pogačar and beyond! It’s a touching, hilarious, fascinating journey that bounces between the centuries, but always has Le Tour at its very heart.
