Kent Cricket Curator

It is a great privilege to have been appointed Honorary Curator for Kent County Cricket Club.  I’ve been working with the Kent Cricket Heritage Trust for the past couple of years and now join the Club itself to direct the caring and sharing of their museum and archive collections.  Our vision is a collections experience at the Canterbury ground, but in the meantime there is plenty of collections management to keep me and the team busy.  I will continue to vary my work with freelance projects.

       

Back to Silverstone

I’m enjoying more work on the Silverstone Heritage Project, this time researching and writing up just about everything that’s happened at the circuit.  It’s involved revisiting many years of watching sports with the F1 story, but new ground for me with motorcycles and production cars.  This great picture is of Sheila Van Damme with her Sunbeam at Silverstone in about 1955.  Her racing team partner was Stirling Moss.
