NEW SUMMER PROGRAMME FOR VIRTUAL CRICKET TALKS IN 2021
Pitch Publishing are delighted to announce a third series of live virtual cricket talks this summer and autumn. After the resounding success of the lockdown-inspired series of 21 different talks, this summer will see nine of our new releases being discussed on a Friday night.
Each talk will see be hosted by BBC cricket commentator and reporter Mark Church, and he will be joined by a different author for each of the talks. They will be free to join and open to all cricket fans and promoted to members of the cricket societies across the country.
Over the years our authors have regularly appeared to speak at events, with many scheduled to appear in person this year.
However, with the restrictions remaining in place due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have elected to continue with this new format, as it has proved hugely popular with fans and society members, and provided a fabulous form of entertainment throughout 2020 and the start of 2021.
The 2021 summer programme will once again see the talks taking place on Friday evenings at 7.30pm and expected to last up to 90 minutes; each will also include a question-and-answer session for attendees. The talks will run throughout the summer and will finish in November.
The links will be published on the day of each talk, and circulated to interested societies ahead of each event to share with members by email or on social media channels.
