KEEPING LORD'S WORLD CLASS
Founded in 1787, Marylebone Cricket Club is the most active and famous cricket club in the world and owner of Lord's Cricket Ground - the Home of Cricket.

Throughout the year, MCC will host at Lord’s a variety of celebrations – on and off the field – which aim to bring the very best of Lord’s to Members, cricket lovers, history enthusiasts and the Club’s neighbours in and around St. John’s Wood.
From MCC v Rest of the World matches and a three-day festival of cricket, celebrating the Ground’s oldest fixtures, to a pioneering digital model illustrating how Lord’s has changed over 200 years, the celebrations will be broad and diverse.
Lord’s will also host a series of banquets and balls...but with a difference. For the first time, they will be hosted in a marquee on the outfield, looking out over the square, at the season’s end.
By happy coincidence 2014 also marks the 150th anniversary of the formation of Middlesex CCC, and it is fitting that Mike Gatting will serve as President during a year of such celebration for his two clubs.
On the evening of Wednesday 5 February the President launched the Bicentenary celebrations in the Long Room and Museum.
