When did Gloucester play at Kingsholm for the first time on a Sunday ?

Extract from a match programme on that date:

“WELCOME TO BRISTOL ON THIS UNIQUE OCCASION!

Of all the famous teams that play on Kingsholm the visit of Bristol must obviously conjure up expectations of what Hamlet termed “enterprises of great pith and moment”, and we extend a very cordial welcome to our friends and rivals from the south of the county.

This afternoon’s game is indeed a unique occasion, at least for Gloucester, for it is the first time in their “One Hundred Cherry and White Years” that they have played on a Sunday.”

(Answer: 3 February 1974. Kick-off was at 3:00 pm and Gloucester won 7-3.)
