Sevenoaks Cricket Bicentenary Week July 16-21, 1934
Sevenoaks celebrates the bicentenary of the cricket match between the Gentlemen of Kent and Gentlemen of Sussex
Amateur film 1934 6 mins Silent
This short film captures the recreation of a historic cricket match which took place between the Gentlemen of Kent and Gentlemen of Sussex at Sevenoaks Vine Cricket Club in 1734. Ladies and gentlemen dressed in fine costumes commemorate the bicentenary, watching as the players, suitably attired, master the 18th century bats. There's even a rather quaint approach to keeping the large crowd informed of the scoring.
