FESTIVAL CRICKET MATCH

Event Code: 1610
Location: Broughton Gifford
Description: Broughton Gifford Manor was the base for Clifford and Arnold Bax's legendary cricket tours before the First World War. Edward Thomas was a regular visitor to the Manor, and scored two runs against Broughton Gifford in 1912! The New Bax Broughtonians, at least half of them from the Bax family, will play the village team captained by Tom Gerrish, whose great-grandfather Charles played in the 1912 match. A recreation of the legendary atmosphere of those Edwardian cricket matches. Refreshments at the Bell on the Common pub. Please car share.
