RNIB have teamed up with Marylebone Cricket Club to offer blind and partially sighted people a unique tour of Lord's Cricket Ground.

Lord's - which is the flagship home of RNIB's "ball by ball” audio described commentary for blind and partially sighted people – will open its doors to give a fully guided tour of the Ground, including the J.P. Morgan Media Centre, Real Tennis court and the famous Pavilion. In addition there will be an opportunity for guests to handle unique cricketing artefacts from the vast collection in the MCC Museum, and further information about match day commentaries at Lord's will be outlined.

The session is free for blind and partially sighted people and their companions, but places are limited so please apply early to guarantee a place. Guide Dogs are welcome and there will be some parking available within the Ground.

The tour takes place on Wednesday 24th April at 4.00pm.

To book your place please contact MCC Tours Department on 0207 6168595 stating whether you will be bringing a companion, Guide Dog or will require car parking.

Please be aware that some of the tour is inaccessible for wheelchair users.
