Authors XI Cricket Match Authors v Stratford Cricket Club

Sunday 5 May 2024

Stratford Cricket Club

One of the world’s oldest wandering cricket teams, the Authors were an Edwardian cricket team and an offshoot of the Authors Club, founded in 1891 for writers to meet and talk. PG Wodehouse, Arthur Conan Doyle and JM Barrie were regulars in the side. Since being revived in 2012, they have played at various festivals as well as the Vatican and against the national teams of Iceland and Japan. Join the likes of Charlies Campbell, Nicholas Hogg, Tom Holland, Adam Rutherford and William Fiennes as they take on Stratford CC. (Their writing may be better than their batting...)
