There will also be a raffle with some great prizes (including a pair of Teddy bears, tickets for the snowdrops at Welford Park, bottles of gin and whisky, Voucher for the Woodspeen and many more) plus a silent auction which will be open from around a week before the event (including a round of golf with Gladstone Small, fishing on the River Lambourne, tickets for The Henley Festival, a meal at The French Horn, tea in the Long Room at Lord’s and others).
During the game ex England players including David Gower, Gladstone Small and Claire Taylor will be around for you to meet plus Hampshire’s Nick Pocock.
Tim Deller from BBC Radio Berkshire will be a roving reporter during the day interviewing both the celebrities and the members of the public for their comments which will go over the PA system.
The entrance to the ground (RG20 8HP) is off Welford Road and up the track to the pavilion where free parking is available. Please note there is no access via Wickham due to road works on the motorway bridge.
