Win Tickets to a Natwest T20 Blast Game

Last year I had my first ever live cricket experience when I went to Emirates Durham in Chester-le-Street to support Durham Jets. It was a fantastic evening out and the T20 cricket was a lot more fast paced and entertaining than I’d expected!


I cheered on our local team as they took on their biggest rivals, the Yorkshire Vikings, and this year I’m giving you the chance to do the same as I have four tickets to give away for the derby fixture on on the 24th of June at 6:30pm.

As well as all the action on the pitch, there’ll also be fun activities such as bubble football, mascot dance offs, a fun fair, fireworks and more! To keep up to date with follow @DurhamCricket on Twitter.


Whether you’re a big cricket fan or you’ve never even set foot inside a cricket ground, I’m sure you’ll have a fab time at this exciting T20 game! Simply answer the question below before 3pm on the 20th of June to go in the draw, good luck! (pssst, if you don’t know the answer, check out my blog post from last year!)

QUESTION: Who won the T20 derby game when Durham Jets played Yorkshire Vikings at Emirates Durham in 2015?
