Sticky Wicket has announced it will go ahead with a ‘lite’ version of the event on 6 August 2021 at Old Wimbledonians Cricket Club, Raynes Park.
The annual event raises money for the Lord Taverners charity, which offers disadvantaged and disabled young people the opportunity to learn life skills through sport. Sticky Wicket has raised almost £480,000 over the last 13 years.
Sticky Wicket has been postponed since last year, and its organisers expressed the importance of putting on the event to bring together the exhibitions industry.
Mervyn Ramsey, founder of Sticky Wicket and Lord’s Taverners commercial development officer said: “It’s been a rollercoaster for everyone over the last 15 months or so, especially within the events industry, and so many industry colleagues and peers have been affected.
“Sticky Wicket has always been about bringing our great industry together, raising money for charity, oh and playing cricket. Being able to do this, all-be-it, in a ‘Lite’ format of the normal event, is something that we believe the industry really needs. We’re an industry who loves to come together and 6 August will be a great opportunity to do just this.”
