It’s summer, it’s the silly season and Christmas is just days away. Oh, and in case it slipped your mind, cricket season is also here, which means this year’s Boxing Day Cup! Pitting local musicians and hospitality workers against one another, aka The Rockatoos vs The Eagle Blues.
Held at Railways Oval (Park 25 / Narnungga), (think opposite the new RAH building/the corner of North and West Terrace), the Boxing Day Cup is a fun 20/20 cricket match that is put on for the enjoyment of us Radelaidians, and in order to raise money for Radio Adelaide. After being cut off from funding by the Adelaide University, the funds raised at this year’s Boxing Day Cup are more important than ever!
For a super quick rundown of the day, have a suss below:
Adelaide's Greatest Raffle Basket
World's Greatest Dad BBQ

Local Noise Top 50 for 2016
National Anthem by Peter Combe & His Combe Bye Yas
Peter Combe?! Who? Maybe you should 'Wash Your Face in Orange Juice', it might 'refresh' your memory, or maybe do a belly flop on a pizza?
Unfortunately there's no BYO booze, but the plus is that all drink sales go directly to Radio Adelaide! BYO of Christmas lunch leftovers is encouraged, before heading along to the official after-party at The Wheaty ft. The Uptown Seeds.
So, what are your plans besides rolling around in self pity with a belly full of food? Come on down, refuel with yesterday's left overs, have a cheeky drink and enjoy the season whilst it's here.
Suss out the event page right here! Merry Christmas and hopefully we'll see you there!
