Lord's Dressing Room opens as event space

Lord’s Cricket Ground has opened the doors of the players’ Home Dressing Room as an event space at the Home of Cricket.

Located within the historic Pavilion, the Dressing Room can be hired for private dining and drinks receptions. Steeped in cricketing history, the walls feature the Lord’s Honours Boards, with the names of England cricketing legends.

The Home Dressing Room is now also recognised as the place where the England teams celebrated their World Cup wins.

Overlooking the pitch, the space can accommodate intimate dinners or receptions catered for by the in-house team at Marylebone Cricket Club, headed up by food and drink executive manager, James de Groot, and executive chef, Karl Pearce.

Refurbished earlier this year, the Dressing Rooms have only previously been accessible to the public through the Lord’s tour. Now available to hire as an exclusive event space, the venue can accommodate 12 guests for a private dinner or up to 40 guests for a drinks reception.

De Groot says: “We are really excited to be able to showcase this fantastic space as a new venue for private hire. The way the team here have worked to be able to offer the Dressing Room for events has been exceptional, and we can’t wait to deliver an incredible experience for all our guests, headlined by our award-winning team.

“I think anyone who attends an event here will be truly amazed by the grandeur and history of the setting, as well as the unique opportunity to celebrate in the same space both the England Men’s and Women’s teams celebrated their World Cup wins.“
