Lord’s, the Home of Cricket, has revealed a range of Christmas party packages for 2014’s seasonal festivities.

Suitable for a range of budgets, two price options are available for celebrations in the contemporary Thomas Lord Suite, while the Long Room and Writing Room, situated in the Grade II* Listed Pavilion will offer a traditional festive touch for event bookers embracing the Ground’s 200-year heritage.

This December, the Thomas Lord Suite will host a ‘Christmas Live’ party package where, alongside a drinks reception, traditional three-course menu and DJ, bookers have a choice of additional entertainment options. Guests can indulge in ‘Christmas Swing’: a rat-pack style cabaret incorporating a sprinkle of festive classics or centre celebrations on an ode to the 70s glitz of the Swedish pop sensations with ‘ABBA’. Alternatively, ‘Medley’ guests can enjoy both acts during their event.

The ‘Christmas Live’ package is available with a choice of drinks options,; event organisers can choose from either ½ bottle of wine per-person or an unlimited drinks package. Prices start at £79 + VAT per-person and £99 + VAT per-person respectively for 150 – 250 guests.

For a refined Christmas dinner, luncheon or reception, the Pavilion offers spectacular vistas over the Ground’s hallowed turf. Both the Long Room and Writing Room within the Pavilion are available for private functions.

Receptions in the esteemed Long Room featuring sparkling wine on arrival, unlimited house wine, beers and soft drinks, and a selection of bowl food or canapés start from £85.

Meanwhile, festive dining in the Long Room or the Writing Room incorporates a three course meal freshly prepared by MCC’s Executive Chef, Tim Harrington, a sparkling wine reception and an unlimited drinks package. Prices start at £105 + VAT per-person in the Long Room and £99 + VAT per-person in the Writing Room, with a host of optional extras available.
