Festival Cricket at St. Helen’s – June 2018
Since 1998, The Balconiers have taken total responsibility for organising The Swansea and West Wales Cricket Festival held annually at the beautifully located St. Helen’s ground in Swansea.
St. Helen’s Schedule 2018
The 2018 annual Swansea and West Wales Cricket Festival will again be a split Festival at St. Helen’s this year. There is a Royal London One Day Cup match against Hampshire on Sunday 3rd June followed by a Specsavers County Championship game against Derbyshire beginning 17 days later on Wednesday 20th June – for four days.
The Festival at St. Helen’s is one of two held each year in Wales, the other being at Colwyn Bay in (against Warwickshire in August). These matches on outgrounds form an important part of a national schedule of cricket festivals, including Arundel, Cheltenham, Horsham, Scarborough, Tunbridge Wells and Uxbridge.
It is important to continue this tradition of playing some first-class cricket away from the main County bases, thus widening the audiences and showcasing the great game in different surroundings.
