Wellington Cricket Dinner – ‘A Celebratory Dinner for those involved in the Cricket Community at Wellington – Past, Present and Future’

6:30pm to 11:30pm, The Long Room, Lords

The Wellington Cricket community is both special and longstanding. This dinner will bring together all its parts in the most evocative four walls in world cricket, the Long Room at Lord’s. This includes, between England tours, our most recent international and county cricketers, Tom, Sam and Ben Curran.

We are delighted that all profits from the evening will be in support of the Ruth Strauss Foundation. This wonderful charity not only funds research into rare lung cancers, but also provides emotional, psychological and well being support to patients and their families going through a similar experience.

Wellington Cricket is flourishing, enjoying possibly the most successful period in its history. College is regularly producing male and female cricketers of the highest quality, many going on to play representative cricket at county level, among them of course several at first class and international level.

We would like as many of those who have contributed to Wellington cricket to join us in celebrating its past with pride, and its future with justified excitement.

Partners, guests and families are all welcome. Tickets cost £150 per person, with all profits going to the Ruth Strauss Foundation

Registration for this event and more information is available from January 2020.
