£7 on the day, £6 in advance from the website www.modernshows.com
Bang in the heart of St John’s Wood at the spiritual home of cricket, come and purchase directly from the best of our mid-century dealers. Enjoy walking around and chatting to 50 top dealers selling design classics from the behemoths of design including Wegner, Eames, Jacobsen, Nelson and Day.
Lords’ Midcentury.Modern overlooks the stunning Stirling Prize winner of a raised pod, the Media Centre designed by Future Systems, which, for all the architectural trainspotters out there, was the first aluminium, semi-monocoque building in the world built and fitted-out in two boatyards using boat-building technology. Not the easiest stream of consciousness to spout at a dinner party. You can also take in a view of the Mound Stand, designed by Sir Michael Hopkins and the Grandstand by Nicholas Grimshaw, and maybe even get a glimpse of some cricket practice for the seven pounds door entrance.
