Ollie Feast Memorial Cricket Match

April 23

A special cricket match between the Old Bedfordians and Old Leysians will be taking place at Bedford School on Sunday 23rd April. The day will give family and friends of Ollie Feast (02-10) the chance to come together to celebrate his life. Ollie attended both Schools, but tragically died at the age of twenty in February 2015.

The match will commence at 11am and be based on a (30/30) format. Tickets for the day will include the following:

Player Ticket (£20 per person)

- To play cricket and use of facilities
- Morning refreshments
- Afternoon tea refreshments
- A donation to the Ollie Feast Trust

Spectator Ticket (£15 per person)

- Morning refreshments
- Afternoon tea refreshments
- A donation to the Ollie Feast Trust

There will be a cash bar serving beer and wine at the end of play.

We invite everybody to bring a picnic for lunch. As you are aware, ‘coming together’ is an important aspect of the event and, as such, we hope to have a large communal picnic on the Langham Pavilion steps during the lunch interval.

More information about Ollie's life and the Trust set up by his family can be found here.

We will not be taking payment in advance, but ask both players and spectators to pay a Trust member on the day.
