Doors will open at 10am, followed by a warm-up T20 fixture an hour later, with a showcase match between the PCA England Legends and a Kent XI rounding off the day.
Players for both star-studded teams are to be announced shortly, and the action on the field will be complemented by entertainment off it throughout the day.

This year’s event is being held in memory of the late Alan ‘Iggy’ Igglesden, who sadly passed away in November 2021.
The inspirational Iggy revealed his story to the Trust in May last year, kicking off the charity’s 5k May campaign which helped to raise over £25,000 for current and former professional cricketers in need.
The Trust supported Iggy and his young family during the final years of the former Kent man’s life, and continues to support PCA members and their immediate families thanks to your generous donations.
Professional Cricketers’ Trust, Director, Ian Thomas, said: “The first Festival of Cricket was a wonderful occasion, so we’re really excited about the 2022 edition which will be a fitting tribute to a man of Iggy’s standing. Please join us on Friday 29 July to help us continue supporting current and former professional cricketers in need.”
