Provide a varied programme of speakers from the world of cricket on a monthly basis throughout the winter
Foster, promote and develop an interest and enthusiasm for cricket within the county.
We would welcome information from other Societies regarding Guest Speakers.

The Society was formed in the summer of 2002 and held its first meeting in November of that year. The inaugural speaker was appropriately enough Jack Birkenshaw who had achieved so much for Leicestershire both on and off the field.
The audience numbered around 70 and in all our subsequent meetings, usually held at the County Ground, Grace Road, we have maintained a healthy attendance of 60+.
Other speakers in our first season included John Holder, Derek Randall and Alan Hill.
