Lord's has successfully hosted the first London Sports Writing Festival from 17-20 October.

The festival, the first of its kind in the UK, featured celebrity speakers from around the world of sport, including World Cup winning rugby star Matt Dawson and former England and Spurs defender Ledley King.

Hosted in the Nursery Pavilion at the Home of Cricket, the festival featured more than 20 sittings over four days and was attended by thousands of sports fans.

Some of the more popular events included The Lions Victorious, featuring Dawson and former England captain turned BBC broadcaster Brian Moore and Fear & Loathing in La Liga, with cult Spanish football correspondent Sid Lowe.

Cricket and cycling were the other prominent sports at the LSWF, with talks including Project Rainbow - featuring British cyclist David Millar - and The Little Yellow Book: 150 years of Wisden (below).
