Cheltenham Cricket Festival

2019 Dates July 15th to 25th

County Cricket in a College Setting

This event has a strong following, with over 25,000 cricket lovers heading to town over the two week period. The setting is Cheltenham College and the event has been held here for over 140 years, making it the longest-running Cricket Festival of its type. W.G Grace played here many times, the teams heading off to the nearby Plough Hotel for a banquet afterwards. He scored his last century for Gloucestershire here, age 50.

2019 fixtures are:

Monday 15 – 18 July:  Gloucestershire v Leicestershire

Friday 19 July: Gloucestershire v Glamorgan

Sunday 21 – 24 July: Gloucestershire v Worcestershire

Thursday 25 July: Gloucestershire v Middlesex

This is cricket in a charming setting, with a nice, relaxed atmosphere (off pitch at least), encouraged by corporate hospitality, beer tents and a holiday atmosphere. .
