Wednesday 17th April 2024: Award-winning presenter Colin Murray has announced a live event series of his unique ‘52’ podcast, where every question asked to his sporting guests is left to chance.

Back for a second series with an exciting new twist, each episode will be recorded live in front of an audience at Grosvenor Casino venues in Glasgow, Sheffield, Didsbury, Reading, Coventry, and London.

The new 12-episode podcast, recorded over six live events, will see famous names – including boxing legend Tony Bellew, Olympic hockey player and I’m a Celebrity star Sam Quek, 100th cap-winning rugby player Danny Care, and former English footballer Emile Heskey – reveal their hand in an 'interview' like no other.

Inspired by the game of poker, guests will shuffle and select a playing card from a deck of 52 cards, where each card features a random question from 'When did you last cry?' to 'What superpower would you like to have?'.

Speaking on the launch of the brand-new podcast event series, Colin Murray, said: “This is the second series of 52, but when we started to record the first one, the world was turned upside-down by Covid! It was the last thing I worked on before lockdown so myself and the team were very happy to actually get it recorded, but at the same time gutted that we couldn't make it in front of a crowd.

“So, this is a great chance to put that right, and the lineups we have put together in six different venues are fantastic!”

Tickets to attend each live recording of Colin Murray’s 52 are now available to buy at the following venues:

  • Wednesday 15 May - Grosvenor Casino Didsbury (Tony Bellew and Kath Merry)
  • Thursday 16 May - Grosvenor Casino Sheffield (Chris Wilder and Sam Quek)

Amy Culora, Head of Marketing at Grosvenor Casinos, said: “Whether you’re a sports fan or just simply love listening to authentic podcasts, Colin Murray’s 52 delivers a fun, unique, and intimate conversation which reveals answers that we’ve never heard before from some of the greatest in sporting talent.

“Colin has completely reshuffled the typical interview format and sets the agenda for the most authentic and candid sports podcast around. With the added layer of a live audience, we’re set for an unpredictable and exciting series event. Grosvenor Casinos is proud to sponsor Colin Murray’s 52 which will be recorded in six of our clubs across the country.”
