Durham CCC Open Day

Durham County Cricket Club’s Riverside Ground will be open to the public on Saturday 21 April, from 10.00am until 2.00pm. Visitors will be able to take part in a tour of the ground which includes the main pavilion and the Media and Education Centre.

Visitors should report to the Riverside Suite which is situated on the first floor of the main pavilion. Access is via Tower 3. The final tour will start at 1.30pm.

Austin’s Bar and Bistro will be open for visitors to sample the snack or a la carte menus on offer. The Surridge@Durham Club Shop and the Box Office will also be open for those who want to purchase the latest Durham kit or buy tickets for the England v West Indies Test Match (15 – 19 June) or the explosive Twenty20 Cup.

Membership of Durham CCC will also be available to purchase, priced at just £125 for adults, £80 for seniors and £25 for juniors, which entitles holders to complimentary admission to all home LV County Championship, Friends Provident Trophy and NatWest Pro40 matches.

Durham County Cricket Club Chief Executive, David Harker, said: “The Open Day gives us the opportunity to give people an insight into the behind the scenes set up at the Club. As the most recent development at the ground, the Media Centre is undoubtedly a highlight of the tour, especially as it is usually closed to the public. We really hope that anyone interested in the Club takes the opportunity to come along and see what we have to offer.”
