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.
Everyone at Gloucestershire Cricket would like to thank all members and supporters for contributing to a memorable Cheltenham Cricket Festival last summer.
For the 2018 Festival, the College Grounds will welcome over 25,000 spectators over the two weeks in July.
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.
Supporters will be treated to five matches in total and for the first time ever, we welcome Kia Women’s Super League Champions, Western Storm led by England Captain Heather Knight on Thursday 26th July.
Gloucestershire will be playing two Vitality Blast matches at this years’ Festival when we take on Essex and Glamorgan. Both fixtures fall on a Friday which will be the perfect way to kick start your weekend.
