Britain's Lost Cricket Festivals
Available in Stock
In 1961 there were 64 'outgrounds' where county cricket teams brought the professional game to the people on park pitches and school fields. By 2001 the number had dwindled to 16 and continues to fall. This book recalls the venues that once hosted the traditional cricket festivals around the country, where marquees and temporary structures would accommodate the players and spectators and international stars could be seen close-up at Blackpool, Scarborough or Weston-super-Mare.
