Festival of Cricket

Sri Lankan Schools OBAs in the UK's Festival of Cricket.

This is the biggest annual gathering of the Sri Lankan community in the UK.

The main event is a knockout cricket tournament contested by Sri Lankan schools' Old Boys Associations, with funds raised going to support the Associations themselves plus a number of charities. The cricket underpins a number of other activities held around the grounds to keep the captive audience/visitors entertained and occupied. These activities include music, children's fun fare, a Sri Lankan Bazaar, excellent quality international hot food stalls, beer tent and Trade Stalls (Air lines, Freight Companies, Insurance etc).

In addition, a hospitality marquee is also run to cater exclusively to those entrepreneurs who can entertain clients or friends on the day, watching some exiting cricket and relaxing by sampling the culture and the cuisine of Sri Lanka.
