Scorecards Talk on Yorkshire Opponent Teams

Another event that is being facilitated by our Heritage Advisory Group; this is a great chance to relive some epic matches we have had against Leicestershire. Each short talk will be illustrated from our speaker’s vast personal collection of cricketing memorabilia, bringing each game to life.

This will take place at the lunch interval on Sunday 7th April in the Museum’s Cinema Space.

Please note that due to the location of the event, spaces are limited to 10 people. We therefore advise anyone wanting to guarantee a spot, to come and speak to the museum staff before the start of play on the day of the talk.

The talk will start five minutes after the lunch break is called.
