Join us for this ancient English game, the forerunner of modern baseball, which has been played for over 500 years. Once popular right across England, stoolball has been played at Lord’s cricket ground and in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, and overseas including Sri Lanka, India and Australia. Who can play stoolball? Anyone! You don’t have to be really fit to play, and it’s a great way to make friends. Children start playing at around 8 or 9, and some people play league stoolball right into their 70s. Visit britsburgh.com for a full list of festival events.
