Next Meetup

Cricket at Lords - followed by pub!
Cricket for everyone! This is a chance to see cricket the easy way, even if you have no interest in sport, as it's a fun "Twenty20" match, only lasting a couple of hours-ish, giving us time to go to the pub afterwards. Nevertheless, the evening will finish at a civilised hour for a "school night", with the pub closing at 11pm, in good time for the tube or bus home. The match is a county match, Middlesex v Sussex - but who cares, as we're only going for a bit of Summer fun! 5.45pm - Lord's Cricket Ground, at the Entrance, St. John's Wood Road, NW8 8QN 9.30pm - The Eagle Pub, 15 Clifton Road, W9 1SY Cricket matches are, by all accounts, quite boozy affairs, so this Meetup is not really suitable for tee-totalers, I'm afraid! 5.45pm - Lord's Cricket Ground, at the Entrance, St. John's Wood Road, NW8 8QN 9.15pm - The Eagle Pub, 15 Clifton Road, W9 1SY Anyroad, I have bought 10 tickets, so get in touch with me, if you would like one!! Alternatively, if you would like to buy your own ticket, near to the ones I already have, we are in the Mound Stand, Lower Tier 3, Staircase Q, seats[masked]. Tickets cost £25 each. You need to register to buy them, but that only takes a minute. You can buy them here: https://tickets.lords.org/events.aspx . I SUGGEST YOU BUY A TICKET SOONER, RATHER THAN LATER, AS THEY DO RUN OUT!!! • The Lord's location information is here: https://www.lords.org/visiting/how-to-get-to-lords/ . Remember, if you can't find us on the night, please telephone[masked] ☎. I will be OFF-LINE, using an old Nokia, so you need to telephone me! :-) Here's a link to last year's Middlesex v Sussex Twenty/20 fixture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7za5gsI0Ig . All ages, 19-99, are welcome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=8OZWYPd48So If the weather is dodgy, there's a "Prospects of Play" hotline, telephone number[masked]. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello Everybody, on a quick note about the tickets, I only exchange them for money on the spot and I never take money, without providing a ticket, there and then. (In 2016, one person did pay me in advance, but I decided against doing that ever again and have not done so and will not do so.) For one of the tickets that I have already bought, you need to exchange £25 for a paper ticket in person and I hope this clarity helps! Thanks and all the best, Cathleen :-) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLAN B: If the match is rained-off, we can convene at the Lord's Tavern pub, next to the cricket ground and then move-on to the Eagle, for a change of scene and to chin-wag and relax, talking about what might have been etc etc... We'll still finish in good time, for a school night. 6pm - The Lord's Tavern pub, next to Lord's Cricket Ground, St John's Wood Rd, London NW8 8QN 9pm - The Eagle Pub, 15 Clifton Road, W9 1SY
