Audlem Cricket Club's 20/20 tournament is being held at the Gorse Croft ground tomorrow, weather permitting. So, if you prefer the sound of leather on willow to the sound of music, or just fancy a short break from it, here is your chance to escape the Music Festival.
For the uninitiated, the format of a 20/20 match is that each side has a single innings of a maximum 20 overs and any one player can bowl a maximum of four overs.
There will be three locally-based teams who play each other in a "round robin" tournament, before the top two play each other in the final. If the 20/20 matches shown on television are anything to go by, there should be plenty of excitement during the four matches.
The first match starts at 11.30am and play will be going on throughout the day. If you want to go and watch, there will be a barbecue and the bar will be open.
