The event aims to introduce every primary school child to cricket giving them the opportunity to acquire an interest in the game.

Cabinet member for sport, leisure and arts, councillor Sandra Garside, said: “This festival is a great way to get them up and on their feet enjoying sport. This festival may also encourage youngsters to take up cricket as a hobby too, which, if it does, will be a great result.”

The winners will go on to play the winners at Dartford with the victorious team representing the district at the Kent finals held in Canterbury in early July.
