Stilt walkers will be greeting everyone at Hove on Friday and children can get their faces painted in front of the Sussex Cricket Foundation Learning Centre (at the Sea End of the ground, behind the Jointing Tech South West Stand) between 3pm and 6pm, whilst balloon modellers will also be showing their craft between those times.

The Learning Centre will be open between 3pm and 6pm for all juniors. There will be All Stars Cricket, table cricket and other activities run by the Sussex Cricket Foundation coaches.
