Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival


Gloucestershire have been playing at Cheltenham for over 140 years making this the world’s longest running cricket festival. The ground’s idyllic setting provides the perfect backdrop and a great attraction for cricket fans, new supporters and big cricketing stars.

The 2013  Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival was the most successful ever in terms of attendance with over 27,000 people attending over the five matches. Attendances were boosted by the superb weather and the very attractive fixtures  including three Friends Life t20 matches.

Gloucestershire Cricket are grateful for the support of Brewin Dolphin, our main sponsor at Cheltenham. We would also like to thank Abercrombie & Kent who sponsor the coaching zone at the festival and festival partner Mercedes-Benz of Cheltenham & Gloucester.

The Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival will return to Cheltenham College next summer.  The festival begins on Monday 14 July and ends on Sunday 27 July. Click here for the 2014 fixture list

The club is also delighted to bring back the highly anticipated Twenty20 form of the game, in the bigger and better NatWest T20 Blast. These matches always provide a great deal of entertainment for those of all ages. The two matches will see Gloucestershire take on the power of Surrey and Essex, starting at 2:30pm and all the action is packed into under 3 hours.

The festival is incredibly popular for corporate hospitality with a variety of packages from individual bookings to a private pitch side marquee for larger numbers. For more information about corporate hospitality at the Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival click here.

During the festival there are a host of events to attend plus free coaching for children at the Abercrombie & Kent coaching zone. There is lots of choice for food and drinks at the ground including hospitality and a wide selection of other options from our bars and the Food Village.
