Lord’s opens England’s historic home Dressing Room as new event space

Posted: 6 August 2019

Lord’s Cricket Ground are opening the doors of the players’ Home Dressing Room as a brand new event space at the Home of Cricket.

Located within the historic Pavilion, the Dressing Room is a completely unique venue to hire for private dining and drinks receptions. Steeped in cricketing history, the walls play host to the Lord’s Honours Boards, featuring the names of England cricketing legends.

The Home Dressing Room is now also recognised as the setting in which the England team celebrated their historic ICC Cricket World Cup win.

Overlooking the world-famous pitch at Lord’s and opposite the iconic J.P. Morgan Media Centre, this unique space can accommodate  intimate dinners or receptions catered for by the award-winning in-house team, headed up by Food and Drink Executive Manager, James de Groot, and Executive Chef, Karl Pearce.

Most recently the scene of England’s sensational ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup victory, the Dressing Room can be transformed into intimate event spaces; from a private dinner for 12 guests  with a six-course menu  and paired wines or drinks receptions for up to 40 people.

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 Dressing Room presents a truly unique opportunity to host events.

"anyone who attends an event here will be truly amazed by the grandeur and history of the setting"

James de Groot, Food and Drink Executive Manager at Marylebone Cricket Club, said: “We are really excited to be able to showcase this fantastic space as a new venue for private hire.

“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“
