The All Out Weekend starts today at Richmondshire Cricket Club.
events for all the family are planned from today until Monday
The weekend is a partnership event between Richmondshire Cricket Club, Totem Tipi and the Richmond Meet.
Held at the club’s Hurgill Road ground, inside two of Totems’ giant Tipis, the event aims to offer a new and exciting twist on the popular Richmond Whit Weekend.
Cricket club chairman Mark Layfield said: “The Whit Monday Cycling was always a big event for us and we felt the need to introduce something to replace it.
“Last years event was a fantastic success and we hope this years will be even better.
“We have been working with the Richmond Meet to make the two events complementary. We really appreciate the Meets cooperation and their generous sponsorship of our Junior cricket.”
