    The wife has kindly got me tickets for a day at the 4th test at Leeds for my Birthday. Does any one know if they are any restrictions in taking photography gear in ( canon 50D + a couple of lenses )

    Headingley are terrible for everything and are the biggest kill joys in cricket.

    I've been going there every test since 1999, except the Ashes in 2005 when the tickets were pre-alloacated, as they are this year

    Basically, you are treated like a terrorist, have to wear an ID all the time, can't leave the stand with out it and are not let back on to the terrace without it. The beer is about 3:50 and is very watered down - I had 12 pints last year and didn't feel remotely tipsy.

    you can take food in but expect your bag to be searched in copious detail

    they banned beer snakes - where you stack up plastic beer glasses and make a big colum and pass them around.

    I think back to the halcion days of 2001 when you could still take in 4 cans of a "box of wine".... how sh1t faced could you get on a box of wine each Wink

    anyway - so cameras.... god knows, I'd expect you can, but would be unsurprised if you get stopped...

    contact the stadium via email, print the answer off and show it to the security if they become arsey

    Funny old game cricket.
    I was down at Edgbaston today doing a report for Sky Sports.
    One of the sponsors gave me two tickets for the weekend.

    As im not into cricket i tried giving them away outside the ground nobody was interested ? i mean these were free sponsor tickets.
    I gave up after five minutes and went home stopped off at the local and no takers there.
    So they ended up in the bin.
    Shame really Sad

    Quote: I can always find a home for them

    Likewise!!.

    Onr the subject of cameras at Cricket matches, I have taken my gear to a few grounds and had no problem getting it in, but as soon as I fixed my 170-500 sigma to my D50 I find that I am pounced on by security. Keep the 18-55mm kit lens on and no problem.

    The worst was at Bristol recently when during a Glos/Somerset twenty-20 match I was told that unless I had press acrediataion I either stopped taking shot's or I would be asked to leave the ground.
