Join other cricket lovers at the second annual Burrawang Cricket Collectors Fair, complete with leading collectors, historians, writers and memorabilia experts. The day includes a presumably energetic panel discussion (given recent ball tampering events) on ‘the spirit of cricket’ with ABC commentator Jim Maxwell and journalist Gideon Haigh. There will also be ceramics, cards, caps, bats, balls, postcards, photographs, badges, silverware, ephemera and other memorabilia on display. Bring along your own cricketing treasures and have them valued by an Antiques Road Show style cricket buff. Traditional afternoon tea and scones will available. You could also join in the festivities the evening before at the Burrawang General Store Cafe, which will hold a vintage degustation dinner in the style held for touring Ashes Test teams of yesteryear.
If you can’t make this date, keep an eye out for details of the annual Long Lunch to commemorate Sir Don’s August 27 birthday at Bradman Museum and Hall of International Cricket Fame, Bowral. Also, tickets for the Bradman Foundation Gala Dinner on Wednesday November 28 are now on sale. Collectors Fair, Sunday 22 July from 10am, Burrawang School of Arts, Burrawang, admission $5.
