Lancashire County Cricket Club’s (LCCC) £7.5m redevelopment of the historic Pavilion, at Emirates Old Trafford, was officially unveiled to the cream of the region’s business community who enjoyed an evening of fine food and dancing.

Built in 1895, the Pavilion has long exemplified the finest traditions of English cricket, with an unrivalled atmosphere and elegance. The rejuvenation was needed to meet the demands of the modern game and to enhance the hospitality facilities provided at The Point.

The construction work carried out has married the building’s character and heritage with new facilities for use by LCCC Members, guests and business delegates.

Angela Hodson, sales manager at Emirates Old Trafford said: ‘The unveiling was our opportunity to show the venue at its very best and judging from the many positive comments received we achieved our aim. From a great menu, produced by Nic Ashurst and our catering team to the outstanding décor the evening was a great success.’

After the meal, guests danced to the sounds of the Paul Pashley Band and were mesmerised by Matt the Magician.

The Point is able to accommodate up to 700 delegates using eight suites and nine executive boxes. The flexibility offered by the venue for meetings and events will expand Emirates Old Trafford’s business offerings.
