Seeing Lord’s on television is one thing. Walking through the gates of the fabled London cricket ground is another level. But nothing can touch the experience of Gala’s cricket hospitality, as we take you behind the scenes of the iconic location where England won their first World Cup in 2019, in the company of the household-name stars who made it happen.
Cricket hospitality on hallowed ground
There’s a good reason why Lord’s is billed as the ‘home of cricket’. Founded by Thomas Lord in the 1800s, every inch of this temple of sport has a story to tell, and you’ll hear them all as you take the ultimate behind-the-scenes tour with your private party. From the Long Room and museum to the media centre and the changing rooms where great England teams past and present have readied themselves for battle, you’ll feel all that sporting glory in the walls.
But nothing brings history alive like the arrival of a bona fide World Cup 2019 cricket star. Just let the Gala team know who would impress your clients or colleagues most and we’ll dive into our unrivalled contacts book to bring you names including Chris Woakes, Jason Roy, Eoin Morgan, Joe Root and Liam Plunkett. Then settle back in a luxurious pitch-facing lounge in the Lord’s Pavilion (or upgrade to an evening event in the home dressing room), as your chosen World Cup winner gives their personal insights on the moments that turned the match England’s way. It’s all capped by a delicious lunch at which you’ll be invited to ask your VIP about their greatest moments on the crease.
