Canterbury Cricket Week was founded in 1842. It is the oldest cricket festival week in England and involves a series of consecutive Kent County Cricket Club home matches, usually held in the first week in August. Since 1847 it has taken place at the St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury, before that it was held at the Beverley Ground in the east of the city. In addition to hosting cricket matches, it also includes several other events and ceremonies. As of 2011, there have been 160 Canterbury Cricket Weeks held.
