Lord’s Unveils Warner Stand Exhibition at MCC Museum
January 18, 2017
The MCC Museum has unveiled a new exhibition documenting the development of the new Warner Stand at Lord’s, and paying tribute to Sir Pelham Warner himself.
The exhibition is the first in a series of displays which will document MCC’s redevelopment of Lord’s, which is due to continue over the next 20 years.
Work began on the new Warner Stand at the end of the 2015 season, and the new structure will be completed in time for the start of the 2017 season.
It includes vastly improved sight lines for spectators, a new match control suite for officials and a state-of-the-art, and a translucent roof which ensures that spectators will benefit from both shade and natural light. Solar thermal and photovoltaic panels on the roof will also generate hot water and electricity.
The exhibition features models of the new stand as well displays, photographs, plans and memorabilia relating to the original Warner Stand which was erected in 1958 and demolished in 2015.
