In 1787, Thomas Lord, a Yorkshireman born in Thirsk, founded a cricket ground in London, for use by Marylebone Cricket Club. Lord’s Ground was to become one of the most famous sporting locations in the world. The Home of Cricket in St John’s Wood is still home to MCC today, staging domestic and international cricket matches. Lord’s has hosted other sports besides cricket and the iconic Grade II*-listed Pavilion, built in 1890, provided a spectacular backdrop to the archery competition as part of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Fusion LX is honoured to have been involved with this historic ground’s Arts and Library projects over the last few years, designing and installing lighting supplied by Basis Lighting in the Pavilion’s home and away dressing rooms, the Committee Room, Committee Dining Room, and the North and South entrances, supported by Decorator, Charlie Scatchard.
"MCC IS COMMITTED TO ENSURING LORD'S REMAINS THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD AT WHICH TO WATCH AND PLAY CRICKET."
~ Guy Lavender, MCC Chief Executive and Secretary
