Kent officials are banking on good weather and big crowds at Tunbridge Wells Festival Week which begins on Friday with the visit of LV= County Championship Division 1 leaders Nottinghamshire to The Nevill.
The five-day festival also includes the Friends Provident t20 clash against holders Sussex Sharks on Wednesday which is expected to be a capacity 5,000 sell-out.
A Friday start represents uncharted territory for one of the county’s most popular fixtures in their calendar - the last round of Championship fixtures until early July - as Twenty20 takes centre stage
While the day may change, nothing seems to alter at The Nevill, and Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club secretary Alan Cutts said: "Beginning on a Friday seems a weird decision but it’s a new venture. The ground looks in fantastic shape, the rhododendrons are pretty much all out and it promises to be a great weekend."
Kent are advising spectators without a ticket for the Sussex Sharks game to book as soon as possible, as they are selling fast.
