Lord’s Cricket Ground, owned by Marylebone Cricket Club, will bring a taste of South Africa to its cricket experience this summer with the opening of the exclusive Nursery Lodge, a one-of-a-kind hospitality package. The Nursery Lodge is a brand new offering for 2017 and will be available for the first time for the hotly anticipated England v South Africa Investec Test Match which is taking place from 6th to 10th July.
The Nursery Lodge hospitality experience will be available on the first, second and third days of the England v South Africa Investec Test Match. Located on the Nursery Ground, it offers up-close-and-personal views of players from both teams as they warm up before the match and during the day as they practise in the nets before taking to the field.
The open-sided structure has been designed to emulate a South African lodge, providing the perfect setting in warm summer months in which to enjoy sumptuous hospitality and an exceptional experience at the Home of Cricket. The Lodge will enable guests to mingle with former international players, before transferring to the Grand Stand where their premium, highly sought-after seats are located.
Within the Nursery Lodge, guests will be treated to a South African themed spread, which includes breakfast, a two-course rolling buffet lunch and the famous Lord’s Afternoon Tea, in addition to complimentary drinks (including Champagne) throughout the day. The menu, will include: mouth-watering chilli sugar-glazed aged rib of beef; delectable salt-crusted sweet potato rostis; aromatic peri peri chicken salad; and sweet maple curd custard with hazelnut cookies.
Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality said: “With the excitement already building for a spectacular summer of cricket, I am delighted to be able to offer our guests the option of our stylish new Nursery Lodge, which will undoubtedly make for a spectacular day out. In the past, England and South Africa have provided some of the Ground’s most exhilarating contests and we pride ourselves on creating unforgettable experiences to match for all of our guests. Demand is expected to be extremely high for this rare experience at the Nursery Lodge so we advise early booking to avoid disappointment.”
