Following the success of Henry Olonga’s visit to Cardiff in November, Russell Holden, Director of In the Zone Sport and Politics has a second event at the teahouse, and it is mouthwatering.
On Wednesday 20th April, from 6.15 pm, Scyld Berry, cricket correspondent of The Sunday Telegraph and current editor ofWisden Cricketers’ Almanack, will be offering a talk entitled ‘From Match-fixing to the Ashes: The Politics of Cricket’.
As many of you will know, Scyld is one of the most distinguished and experienced writers on international cricket and the wider political context of the game. His most recent book, Cricket’s Burning Passion, was The Cricket Society/MCC Book of the Year in 2009. Scyld has just been nominated for two major journalism awards by the UK Sports Journalists’ Association.
There will also be the opportunity to ask Scyld any questions you may have.
We ask that you arrive at 6.15pm, allowing yourself enough time to choose your favourite pot of tea and cake, and to be sitting comfortably when Scyld starts at 6.45pm. Numbers are limited in the teahouse, so if you are an avid cricket follower, arrive on time.
We cant wait!!
