Lord’s Cricket Ground has announced it will host another Family Day on Sunday 31 July when Middlesex take on Essex in the Royal London One Day Cup.

Following on from the success of last year’s event, the day will see activities on offer for supporters of all ages at the most iconic ground in world cricket.

Budding cricket stars or even those just keen to give the sport a go will be able to take part in taster sessions which will be running throughout the day in the MCC Cricket Academy. There will also be chances to learn about innovative umpiring technologies ‘Pitch Vision’ and ‘Hawk Eye’, with interactive classes.

Adding to the fun on Family Day, Middlesex mascot Pinky will be taking over the Nursery Ground with Pinky’s Pavilion – a one-day fun fair experience. Music performances will also take place on the Nursery Ground throughout the day and the Lord’s Food Village will host a barbecue in the afternoon.

Established in 1814, Lord’s Cricket Ground is known as the ‘Home of Cricket’ and has been home to Middlesex County Cricket Club since 1877. On Family Day, entrance to the world-famous MCC Museum will be available free of charge for those under-16. The Museum’s most famous exhibit is the original Ashes Urn, cricket’s most precious artefact!
