SCG Oral History Project

The SCG Oral History Project aims to build a kaleidoscope of memories and experiences of our beloved ground. The SCG Trust has commissioned historian Warwick Franks to research and interview long-standing SCG members and employees, plus cricketers and footballers who have a special affinity with the SCG and its associated venues.
