World Cup Cricket Trophy To Visit Canterbury
This month will see a very special visitor call on the Beaney in Canterbury – in the form of cricket’s ICC World Cup, when the accolade goes on show at the venue for one afternoon only, on 14th May, between 2pm-4.30pm.
The 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup takes place in England and Wales between 30th May-14th July, and as part of the event, the trophy is being taken on a pre-tournament promotional tour of the country. Entrance will be free for the display at the Beaney, which is the only public venue in Kent to host the trophy.
The city council’s director of commissioned services, David Ford, said: “It’s a real coup for the Beaney to be chosen as the only location in Kent to have the trophy on show to the general public, and we’re really looking forward to what will be such a special event.
“Of course the city has very strong cricketing links, being the home of Kent County Cricket Club, so excitement for the World Cup will already be mounting. The arrival of the trophy will mean our residents and visitors have the opportunity to be part of this fantastic sporting event.”
