Club marks 150th Year at Canterbury Cathedral

Names from the Kent cricketing family past and present gathered at Canterbury Cathedral for a Thanksgiving Service celebrating the 150th Year of Kent County Cricket Club.

Over 800 people filled the Nave of the Mother Church of the Church of England, and saw readings from actor Jim Carter, former President Lady Kingsdown and batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond.

More pieces from former Kent batsman and current England selector Ed Smith and a former and current captain in Matthew Fleming and Sam Billings respectively, were read in front of a crowd consisting of past and present players, presidents, staff and members of the Club.

Prayers led by Kent Cricket’s President for 2020, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, and the Dean of Canterbury Cathedral, Robert Willis, sandwiched a rousing rendition of the hymn Jerusalem in capping off the service.

Be there to support your home county’s only top-tier professional sports side in 2020 and be a part of Kent Cricket’s 150th Year celebrations by becoming a Kent member for next season
