The iconic ground in St John's Wood, London is considered one of the best cricket venues on the planet, alongside arenas in Melbourne, Australia, India and South Africa.

In addition to the stadium's latest event spaces, the prestigious Long Room is a favourite for corporate events, including gala dinners and even wine tastings, while the Nursery Pavilion is the largest, seating up to 1,000 for a conference.

The first of the new spaces, The Grand Stand, can host conferences for up to 56 delegates cabaret-style and 100 delegates theatre-style. The space also has a mezzanine level, the Father Time Gallery, which is sold in conjunction with it and is available for breakout and refreshment space. The Father Time Gallery can also be hired separately for networking events and drinks receptions for up to 100 delegates.

The third refurbished space, the President’s Box, offers views over the hallowed cricket pitch and can accommodate a dinner for up to 48 delegates. 

The investment has seen the refurbishment of the kitchens and toilet facilities, while digital signage has also been created to improve communications.
