The Cheltenham Cricket Festival 2020 has sadly been cancelled due to the coronavirus. We expect the dates for 2021 to be in July.
The Cheltenham Cricket Festival is one of the most loved events in the social and sporting calendar. The idyllic setting of Cheltenham College provides the perfect backdrop for cricket at the height of summer.
Gloucestershire have been playing in the stunning grounds of Cheltenham College for over 140 years, making this the world’s longest running cricket festival on an outfield. The ground’s idyllic setting has provided a perfect backdrop for the Festival throughout its history, a great attraction for cricket fans, new supporters and big cricketing stars.
Whether you’re an avid cricket fan or a first timer, the festival is the perfect opportunity to entertain clients, treat friends and family or reward staff to a fantastic day out. You can expect a fantastic atmosphere.
150th Anniversary Events
2020 marks a special year in the history of Gloucestershire Cricket as the Club makes a return to Division One cricket and celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Club's foundation.
Fresh off the back of a hugely successful season; in which Richard Dawson led his team to promotion to Division One of the County Championship and a third Vitality Blast knockout stage appearance in the last four years, there is plenty to be optimistic about the season ahead.
The club are marking their 150th year in style with a year of celebratory events for members and supporters. During the summer, Mark Alleyne and other Gloucestershire greats will play a series of matches against cricket clubs in the region. Full details can be found here - https://www.gloscricket.co.uk/150/
