The showcase of Gloucestershire Cricket’s year returns to the College Ground

One of the quintessential summer highlights in Cheltenham is the Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival, which is held each year in the beautiful surroundings of Cheltenham College.

This year the event runs from Wednesday, July 8 to Saturday, July 18 and includes two NatWest T20 Blast matches as well as two LV= County Championship four day games. T20 cricket is arguably the most exciting form of the game and, with big hits and non-stop action, BIG crowds are expected.

Gloucestershire has been playing at the iconic Cheltenham College since 1872 – making this the world’s longest running cricket festival to be played at an outground. The college’s idyllic setting has provided a perfect backdrop for the festival throughout its history, and continues to be a great attraction for all cricket fans, both old and new.

The 2015 Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival promises to be bigger and better than ever with lots to do around the ground. Ladies’ Day will once again grace the Festival on Thursday, July 9 in aid of LINC. Highlights this year will include a fashion display by Lisa von Hallwyl and Beatrice von Treskow.

This summer will feature some superb fixtures including matches against Northamptonshire, Kent, Hampshire and Leicestershire. Fans can also look forward to seeing both centurions from this year’s Australian Big Bash League in action. Hard-hitting batsman Peter Handscomb has joined the Club as its second overseas player for 2015. The 23-year-old – who made a blistering 103* off 64 balls for the Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers – joins the squad that already boasts Michael Klinger, the only other player to make a century in the 2014/15 Australian T20 competition.

Supporters can also enjoy superb views from one of our hospitality marquees; a popular attraction and a great way to treat clients or friends or for those celebrating a special occasion. Packages - including a delicious lunch and afternoon tea – are available from £60 per person. More information on hospitality, including Ladies’ Day, is available from Cariad Silk who can be contacted on 0117 910 8022 or email
