A Cricket Derbyshire Foundation (CDF) exhibition, showcasing items of memorabilia and artefacts throughout the Club’s history, is already proving to be a hit at Erewash Museum in Ilkeston.

The exhibition, which is being held throughout October, presents a host of items collected as part of the CDF’s Heritage Project, including photographs, books, cuttings and player’s items – all showcasing cricket in Derbyshire.

Members and supporters have the opportunity to “Show and Tell”, bringing their own artefacts and photographs, and, if they wish, share their memories and recollections of the game of cricket with our staff and volunteers.

The CDF aims to use the power of sport to educate, motivate and inspire children, young people and adults living in Derbyshire whatever their age, gender, religion or ability, making a lasting and positive impact on individuals’ lives.

Heritage Officer, David Griffin, said: “We’re here for most of October and we’ve got an array of artefacts and memorabilia on display, most of which has never been seen in public before.

“We’ve had a really positive response over the first two days and if you’ve got anything to bring in and show us, then please do.”

The programme is as follows;
