After Queen's Park underwent a £4m facelift, financed by the Borough Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the County Cricket Club and the council agreed a five-year deal to bring cricket back to the park, which is rated by commentators as one of the most beautiful settings for cricket anywhere in the world.
A five-day festival made a triumphant return, attracting bumper crowds, in 2006 and has the event remains one of the highlights of the summer for cricket followers from a wide area. A new five-year contract was signed in 2011 committing to at least five days of county cricket per year in the park.
