Cricket World Cup final to be played at Folkestone's Harbour Screen

Sports fans are invited to watch the final of the Cricket World Cup at an outdoor cinema in Kent.

England will play New Zealand this Sunday in the final following their crushing victory over Australia yesterday.

It is a big moment for the team, with this being the first time England have been in a cricket world cup final since 1992.

And cricket fans are eagerly awaiting the game - as England has never won the world cup before.

Today, bosses behind the Harbour Screen in Folkestone have announced they will air the match on Sunday at the Harbour Arm for free.

And tickets for the screening are now available online.

A spokesman for Harbour Screen said: "The Harbour Screen played an important part in English sport in Folkestone last summer.

"We screened every match of the world cup for free.

"Our tickets for England games were incredibly popular, with hundreds of tickets being snapped up in a matter of minutes after being released.

"We’ve been screening the Wimbledon and cricket matches since they began.

The Harbour Screen has played several sports matches, including the England Vs Columbia game in last year's world cup (13732737)

"We’ve taken the decision to exclusively screen the England World Cup final against New Zealand this Sunday."

The match will be screened all day and re-entry is encouraged.

The match will not be the only highlight at the Harbour Arm this weekend - tomorrow hundreds of people dressed as Kate Bush will join forces to re-create her 1978 Wuthering Heights music video.

Fans are invited to attend the seafront in red in honour of the iconic singer and her most famous song.
