The 7th Neville Cardus Lunch
The Seventh Neville Cardus Lunch — Wednesday April 3rd 2019, 12.00 for 12.30 at Emirates Old Trafford.
The Lunch is an annual event designed to help keep alive the name of Sir Neville and his writings. It will also help further promote the Archive which is developing strongly. At last year's lunch we had over 50 people attending to listen to award-winning writer Harry Pearson speaking on his book on Learie Constantine and also his warm appreciation of Cardus.
This year's Lunch will take place at Emirates Old Trafford on Wednesday April 3rd in the Club Suite in the Pavilion.
We are delighted to have as our speaker Mike Selvey, the former fast-bowler who played for Middlesex and Glamorgan. He took 101 wickets in the 1978 season and was a key part of the Middlesex attack that won the County Championships three times in 1976,1980, and 1982. When he retired he became cricket correspondent of The Guardian newspaper.
The Lunch, at 12 noon for 12.30pm, will be open for anyone to book (£35) although we will be limiting places, so please book early. It will be a three course meal plus coffee, to a special menu. (Please tell us if you would like a vegetarian option.).
We hope to have between 40-50 people, amongst them Patrons of the Archive along with representatives of Lancashire CCC and the Hallé. There will inevitably be some informal reflections and reminiscences of Neville over the meal, as well as the opportunity to see some of our archival material and to contribute ideas for the Archive's further development.
We have already produced five books from the Archive's now extensive resources. The latest of them is Cardus Undimmed which focuses on the last decade of Neville's life, with a look too at some of the other splendid cricket writers of Neville's time, their own writings, and their relationships with Neville himself.
Cardus Undimmed — Price £10.00 (post free)

Chris O'Brien will be at the lunch and signing copies of his book Cardus Uncovered which has been listed for the Cricket Society Book of the Year.
We do hope you will be able to join us on what should be another memorable occasion.
All proceeds go to supporting the Cardus Archive.
