Yorkshire Cricket set for Christmas celebration!

— 24 November 2022

The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that it will be hosting a Christmas celebration at Headingley on Friday 16 December.

The event, which will be hosted in the concourse of the Howard Stand, will get underway at 4.30pm and finish at approximately 6pm. There will be Christmas carols, readings and interviews, including with the new Bishop of Kirkstall, the Right Revd Arun Arora. Food and beverages will be available, and live music will come from a band led by award winning singer-songwriter Rob Halligan.

Yorkshire members and their families have been invited to the event, which will then be opened to the wider public after November 30, numbers permitting.

This Christmas celebration will be the last of a series of events held at Headingley in 2022, following Eid Milan and Diwali celebrations having been hosted in May and October respectively.

Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Chaplain, Bishop Chris Edmondson said: “I’m very excited that the Club is going to be hosting its first Christmas celebration of this kind in December, as we continue to bring our communities together, to share in marking important religious and cultural celebrations.

“We’ve been delighted to welcome people from a wide range of backgrounds to Headingley for the immensely successful Eid Milan and Diwali celebrations, and it will be fantastic to have a great turn out of people joining us on the 16 December.

“I’ve been privileged to have attended these other celebrations, and can reflect on how important it’s been to see individuals from a range of faiths and communities coming together to enjoy time together in these ways.

“Our Christmas celebrations will combine some carols and other Christmas music, interviews, and readings, along with great food and drink, and I very much look forward to seeing many of our supporters and their families at Headingley on the 16.”
