The event was hosted by former rugby union star John Taylor, on Thursday 17 June, and included a reflection on the region’s rich sporting heritage with some of the participants featured in the book.

The book comprises the edited transcripts of many of the oral history recordings carried out by the award-winning Kent’s Sporting Memories project. It touches on a wide range of sports, and sheds light on many social aspects of Kent village and town life, including the forging and experience of friendship.
