The Bath Cricket Festival is all but upon us, and plans for events to coincide with the county championship match against Hampshire on Wednesday June 12th, and the N.U.L. match against Leicestershire on Sunday June 16th are at an advanced stage.

Once again Bath Area Chairman Robert Appleyard and his hard working committee have been very busy throughout the winter to make sure that everything is in place to help to make the 2002 Bath Festival even more of a success that it was in 2001.

The following events have been arranged:
Tuesday June 11th. Garden Party and tour of the world famous Holbourne Museum in Bath. Tickets are £15.
Thursday June 13th. Cheese and Wine Party in the Friends of Bath marquee at close of play. Tickets are £5.
Friday June 14th . Bath Cricket Festival Dinner. SOLD OUT.
Saturday June 15th. `Barbecue on the Rec.' Tickets only £5 and £1 per pint!

For bookings or any further information regarding any of these events please contact Robert Appleyard on 01225 313906, or visit the club office on the Recreation Ground during the festival.

Earlier today Robert told me: "I hope that people will come along and support these events the profits from which are vital to help us offset the cost of staging the festival, and also will enable us to make a generous donation to Rob Turner's benefit."
