Worcestershire CCC is excited to announce that new President, Lord King of Lothbury, former Governor of the Bank of England and Chairman of its Monetary Policy Committee for a more than a decade, is to provide a key note speech at a President’s Gala Dinner in association with Handelsbanken, on Wednesday 13th May 2015, the eve of the County’s four day clash at New Road against World Cup runners up New Zealand.              

Lord King’s accolades are almost unparalleled in the financial services industry and the opportunity to gain an insight into his experiences at the pinnacle of the British economy, in addition to his love for Worcestershire CCC and his time spent watching the County over the years, having enjoyed watching some of the world’s greatest ever players compete at New Road, is certain to prove extremely popular as tickets go on sale today.

A four course dinner will kick start proceedings before Lord King provides a key note speech. Dave Bradley, MC for the evening, will then host a Q&A session with Lord King, who amongst other topics will discuss his love for the Club and memories from years gone by, including batting with a certain Graeme Hick on the hallowed New Road turf. Lord King will also be fielding questions from the floor to close the evening’s proceedings.

Priced at just £75 including VAT per person, this prestigious event held in association with Handelsbanken, is a must for professionals in the financial services industry and is sure to fill up in no time with relevancy to the current economic climate and Worcestershire CCC in general certain to attract visitors from all business fields.
