Lord's is the Home of Cricket and the Investec International Cricket Matches are a key attraction during the season.
What to expect at Lord’s
Various cricket fixtures take place throughout the season at Lord’s. However, the main highlights are the Internationals, which include the Test Matches. The first Investec Test Match takes place from Thursday 6th to Monday 10th of July and it will see South Africa visit to take on England. The third Test Match of the series is also at Lord’s and this takes place from the 7th to the 11th of September and will see the West Indies play England.
International cricketers will be playing and famous faces in the audience have included Stephen Fry, Lily Allen and Mick Jagger.
Event hotspots and hospitality
The Lord’s Food Village is located next to the Nursery Ground and is a very popular place to eat and drink. A section of the Nursery ground transforms into an inner-city park during major matches for picnics. While play is in progress on the Main Ground, spectators can watch the match on the big screen and tuck into food brought from home, or a delicious Lord’s Picnic Hamper.
Hospitality options include private boxes for 18 people for long-term and daily hire, with a range of packages also available for groups of all sizes on a match-by-match basis. Places to be seen include the intimate, award winning Captains’ Lounge and Nursery Pavilion, which overlooks the beautiful Nursery Ground where the players practice before play.
Did you know
Lord’s is not the world’s most boisterous sporting arena, but it does have its own special and unique atmosphere. The appreciative crowd murmur is unlike anything else worldwide, a gentle buzz that combines the excitement and anticipation of the world-class cricket to come with the sociable chatter of friends and companions.
Entry to the famous MCC Museum is completely free for ticket holders and attractions include Denis Compton’s knee-cap, sculptures of WG Grace, and of course the famous Ashes Urn.
One of the famous Lord’s traditions is that before each day’s play, a respected figure from the world of cricket will ring the Five-Minute Bell to get the players ready and on the field.

There is no dress code for the general areas at Lord’s but the ground does not permit fancy dress or musical instruments. We recommend casual summer wear as the best option. For hospitality, you should be more towards the style of smart casual.
