Past Event

The Master Blaster himself – Sir Vivian Richards – invites you and your family to enjoy a cricket tour to remember in his beloved homeland of Antigua and Barbuda this October.

Celebrity cricket matches have been central to the charity’s fundraising since 1950, so to mark our 65th anniversary the Lord’s Taverners XI will make their debut at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Cricketing royalty will join celebrities for five days of pro-celebrity cricket on the stunning beaches of Antigua and Barbuda and the 10,000-seater stadium that bears local legend King Viv’s name.

International Cricket Tours, our travel partner, is offering Taverners a once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch iconic names – including Mike Gatting, Andy Caddick and Nick Hancock – in action while soaking in the twin-island state’s sparkling charm.

With 365 beaches and a world class national stadium, there’s no better place to enjoy the Caribbean’s favourite pastime.

Prices start at £1,699 per person, including accommodation at the luxurious Sugar Ridge hotel, which hosted England’s cricket team during their 2014 West Indies tour, and return flights from Gatwick with British Airways.

The package also includes a cocktail reception with the players, a catamaran day trip, night time Twenty20 cricket match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and beach cricket at the Valley Church Beach with a post-match BBQ.
