The Wisden 150 Club held its inaugural lunch at The Oval on 16th July 2012. Hosted by the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack editor, Lawrence Booth, the theme of the lunch was ‘The Inner Game’, featuring Michael Atherton and Allan Donald. Guests enjoyed a three-course lunch and drinks in a suite overlooking the ground as Michael and Allan discussed their on-field battles and the rivalry between England and South Africa.
Since then we have run a series of lunches that remain true to the ethos of the inaugural event – a focal point for the discussion and celebration of the game. Our 2017 schedule will be released by the end of January 2017.
Here’s just some of the feedback from our lunches.
An excellent first event. I will be coming again! It was great to see interesting speakers, like Allan Donald, from whom we don’t often hear, and also, in Mike Atherton, one of the more intelligent commentators on the game.

Great event. All of us and our guests loved it. Very interested in the next one! Very good not to have an auction or raffle. Too many events include those.
