About Lord’s Cricket Ground The current Lord’s Cricket Ground is its third incarnation. The first ever match played at ‘Lord’s Cricket Ground’ came in 1787 when businessman Thomas Lord staged a game between Middlesex and Essex at a newly built ground in what was then known as Dorset Fields. By 1811, MCC had moved to a new Ground in the Eyre Estate of St John’s Wood. This ground proved unpopular but when plans emerged for the Regent’s Canal to be built straight through it, Thomas Lord gratefully accepted compensation and moved the Ground to its current location in 1814. About meetings and events at Lord’s Lord’s has 12 unique spaces which can host meetings, conferences, receptions, dinners and weddings for up to 1,000 people. From the grandeur of the Long Room in the Grade II* listed Pavilion, to the modernity and style of the J.P. Morgan Media Centre, the venue boasts a variety of spaces, many with great views of the pitch. The venue attracts clients from a variety of industry sectors including corporates, associations and agencies.
