Welcome to this year’s London Sports Writing Festival at Lord’s which takes place this week from Thursday 23rd October to Sunday 26th October.  The Festival is jointly hosted by David Luxton Associates and Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and our media partner is the London Evening Standard.

This year’s event is even more ambitious than the 2013 Festival, bringing together the best sports writers and personalities from far and wide for an extensive programme of talks, panel discussions, book signings, and masterclasses.  We have had extensive coverage for the Festival in the national press and we’re delighted to be welcoming BBC Radio 4′s Open Book programme to the Festival on the opening day.

Tickets are still available for most events from the Lord’s online ticket office or you can buy them in person from the box office on the day (subject to availability).  Go to the Information page on this website for instructions on how to buy online.   You can follow us on Twitter @lswf14 and also @dluxassociates.  For information on other events at Lord’s please visit their website www.lords.org.
