A thousand stories, all woven together, spinning our stories, to show the world, this game is ours.

Celebrating Women's Cricket being part of the Commonwealth Games, A Thousand Threads is a community production featuring live performance, set to a unique soundscape of words and music.

Developed from local research, the piece explores broad themes about women and girls's lives and aspirations, both on and off the pitch. Don't miss the chance to see rival teams from the Athena League: the Spinners and the Weavers bowl, bat and field their way to victory!

Each day of this 4-day Cricket Match takes place in a different outdoor location.

Please note due to the nature of this event the performance at Ward End Park is women only (Children under 8 welcome).
