The Opening of the Museum, 2022

After several years closure due to covid, it was a joy to see the Museum open to the public again. The opening ceremony was held on the first day of the match against Nottinghamshire and it was a pleasure for the Museum to have Luke Wright perform the opening ceremony. In the 10th Anniversary Newsletter of the Sussex Cricket Museum, Jon Filby, Chairman of the Museum and now Chair of Sussex Cricket, said of the re-opening of the Museum that, ‘It was a huge joy to have the Museum back open during the first game of the season against Nottinghamshire and especially good to see the Museum packed when Luke Wright cut the ribbon to open the 2022 Exhibition. It was ten years ago in April 2012 that Matt Prior opened our first exhibition and since then we have been privileged to have the museum opening conducted by many of the greats of Sussex Cricket. Long may that tradition continue.’

For 2022, the first year we have been able to open since 2019, we have a display on Brunswick Cricket Club and A.E.R. Gilligan in Gallery Two whilst in Gallery Three we have displays on Sarah Taylor and Clare Connor, memorabilia from 2003 and tributes to Tony Buss, Jim Parks, Ted Dexter, Ian Thomson, Rupert Webb and John Snow.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum.
