The Alton Victorian Cricket Tournament


We’re delighted to welcome you back to the Butts Green, Alton, Hampshire!

📅 SUNDAY, 26th JUNE from 10:00 am

How it started

Established in 1982, The Alton Victorian Cricket Tournament (originally the Old Fashioned Cricket Tournament) began as a one day September challenge match between two of Alton’s most historic public houses, The Eight Bells and The French Horn

What it is today

The aim of the day is fun for all the family, players and spectators, with an overall charitable intention. The organising committee now follow a rigorous process for selecting a local charity each year.

Proudly sponsor

The event today is a tournament featuring nine teams of nine players, all of whom wear approximations of 19th century victorian dress, with stalls around for local businesses to promote. A stacked bar, and many activities fill the Butt’s field, to raise money for our local charity.
