Lord's Cricket Ground has invested £3.8 million in creating two new event spaces and refurbishing a third space at the venue.

In time for the new season, the venue has unveiled the Grand Stand, described as a light and airy space for conferences of up to 100 people, which will be complemented by a mezzanine level, called the Father Time Gallery, available for breakout and refreshment space. It can be used separately for networking and drinks receptions of up to 100 people.

The refurbished President's Box is able to accommodate dinners of up to 48 guests, while work has also gone into improving the kitchens and toilets and digital signage has been added.

Meetings and events sales manager Zoe Ward said: “The project has given us three new event spaces in readiness for the cricket season which enhance the already wide variety of flexible event spaces available at Lord’s.”

Planners that book their event in the Grand Stand in May will receive a complimentary tour for up to 25 guests of the Ground, subject to availability.
