Wellington: Cricket Museum Tour
A tour to the Cricket Museum has been organised for Wednesday the 16th of August.
This special visit to the New Zealand Cricket Museum will give you the chance to get very close to some of the most treasured items from our cricket history. Hold one of the first White Fern’s batting gloves, feel the weight of Luke Ronchi’s bat or take your stance with the third oldest bat in the world, you can even smell the sweat on Stephen Fleming’s shirt. We’ll also share with you some of the most famous stories from the game – from cricket balls made in Prisoner of War camps to record-breakers turned jail-birds.
The tour will last for approximately one hour including time to ask questions. The tour will be available for up to three low vision or blind participants and will be supported by museum staff, volunteers and a Blind Foundation staff member.
Transport: transport will be available from the railway Station to Braille House. We will then walk down to the Basin reserve.
If you are interested in attending the tour then please reserve a place by contacting Frances Watling (Recreation and Volunteer Coordinator at the Blind Foundation) by phoning 04 380 2151 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
