Honouring the traditional pairing of food and cricket, Lord’s Dining Club brings together MCC's heritage with exciting, inventive cooking from some of the world’s most revered Michelin-starred chefs.
Following the sensational success of 2023’s Lord’s Dining Club hosted by GQ Chef of the Year, Gareth Ward, attentions now turn to the thriving Midlands food scene. Birmingham-based Aktar Islam of double Michelin star restaurant Opheem and Lichfield’s Tom Shepherd, whose restaurant Upstairs By Tom Shepherd was awarded a Michelin star just four months after opening, will host the next two events.
Taking place in the Grade II*-listed Pavilion, each event includes a cocktail reception with a selection of MCC canapés in the Long Room Bar – or in the famous Home Dressing Room for those who wish to indulge with a VIP package.
The menus are exclusively designed by the evening’s host Michelin-starred chef and includes an exclusive reception followed by a four-course meal, paired with a matching wine flight, chosen to enhance the culinary delights on offer. A Q&A session, hosted by a cricketing legend, will delve into the chefs’ successful careers as well as exploring the menu choices guests will be enjoying on the evening.
