Canterbury has hosted Canterbury Cricket Week, the oldest cricket festival in England, since 1842. An important date in Canterbury’s social calendar, traditionally Canterbury Cricket Week would draw thousands of spectators and has many traditions including a Ladies Day during the week. The tradition continues to this day and Kent Cricket welcomes Sussex Sharks (T20), Hampshire (T20) and the West Indies national side (3-day tour match) between the 4th & 11th of August to what will be the 166th Canterbury Cricket Week to date.
