We’d like to thank those that attended, & we’re encouraged by the enthusiasm & shared commitment to making Canterbury Cricket Week accessible to all.

Discussions mainly focused on what Cricket Week means to Members, cricket fans & the wider community, what is the modern-day role of Cricket Week & how we can move forward.

The Club is pleased to confirm that the 171st Canterbury Cricket Week will be a return to a multi-format make-up, with two T20 matches against Essex Eagles (7 June) & Hampshire Hawks (9 June) preceding a home Championship clash with Surrey, resuming the oldest rivalry in world cricket, from Sunday 11 June.

The first match of Canterbury Cricket Week in 2023 will also be a double-header at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence – South East Stars – the professional regional Women’s team operated in partnership with Surrey & Kent – will face Central Sparks ahead of Kent Spitfires’ ‘Battle of the Bridge’ against the Essex Eagles – with one ticket valid for both matches, & entry for Members guaranteed at no further charge.

Feedback & comments submitted during the Members Working Group will be used to create a schedule of events & activities to make the week a Festival everyone can be proud of, & we look forward to sharing further details in due course.
