    See you shortly. Don't forget the dress code, which they only told us about yesterday!

    Oh, the dress code email was hilarious...

    Please be aware that there is a dress code and the following are prohibited - jeans and their close relations, leggings; jodhpur-style trousers; t-shirts; tracksuits; training shoes; plimsolls; flipflop shoes; denim clothing; and overalls.

    EH!? I'm assuming this is a thing that has actually happened at Lord's before, for them to learn from? Observation-ally, those codes don't match exactly with any of those listed on the Lords website, but anyway. Different areas of the club have different dress codes though :)

    Appx 10 years ago - the last Nominet event at Lords - that had a dress-code (most were in suits).
    This time it's supposed to involve some training rather than just the usual tour (been there,done that several times) which seems incongruent with the idea of no trainers etc !

    The view down the river from the pub where I ended up was fantastic :)

    Hope those who had appropriate attire had a good time, I just wasnt wasting 4+ hrs on a round trip to get changed - far too nice day for that nonsense.
