Dear cricket aficionados,  why spend your days trapped inside a hot box house, going square-eyed from watching hours upon hours of Ashes coverage?

Get outside, grab a bat, or better yet head to Woodford.

See, the yearly folk festival has reinvented cricket and given the game a much needed face lift. Across Woodford’s weeklong celebrations, festival goers can keep up to date with the Ashes scores and be entertained by a gaggle of cricket playing women, men and children, known as the Woodford 11. There’s enough zinc, laughs and moustaches to amuse even the biggest cricket critic.

It’s a festival tradition for the Woodford 11 to verse a team of musicians and guests in a cricket showdown… the current rainy weather might other ideas, but let’s all keep our fingers crossed and maybe we’ll see Kerry O’Brien hit a wicket!
