Lord's Cricket Ground is offering a fascinating insight into the inspirational and colourful history of women's cricket through its brand new 'Evolution of Women's Cricket' exhibition.
To celebrate the launch of the exhibition, experts and heroes from the women’s game will be speaking at a special symposium at Lord’s on Saturday 4 April.
Hear from leading women’s cricket expert Dr Rafaelle Nicholson who will be speaking on the history of the game, as well as cricket luminaries Claire Taylor and Barbara Daniels as they share their experiences of the game with Isabelle Duncan, who has written extensively on women’s cricket.
The event includes access to the newly curated 'Evolution of Women’s Cricket Exhibition', which includes memorabilia from the inspirational women who have pioneered and transformed the game. Access to the exhibition is also available to attendees of private events at all other times.
An original ‘Red’ English Lady Cricket costume from 1888 and Betty Snowball’s trunk used during England’s first tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1934-1935 will be on display, as well as the first-ever women’s World Cup from 1973, which predates the men’s tournament.
