Canterbury is home of Kent County Cricket Club with the St Lawrence Ground being situated to the South of the City, one of the oldest grounds on which first-class cricket is played. Another famous attraction is the recently re-opened Marlowe Theatre which is named after the playwright Christopher Marlowe, who was born and attended school in the City.
