There are a limited number of tickets available for the lecture alone. Most tickets are jointly available as part of the black tie Celebration Dinner to take place later in the Long Room.
Mike Brearley (St John’s 1960-1963) will be the speaker at this inaugural flagship event on Thursday 30 March 2017 in the Thomas Lord Suite at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Mike is one of the Club’s most celebrated Members and also, of course, one of a landmark group of Hawks’ men to captain England at cricket.
This is a ground-breaking event designed to confirm the place the Hawks’ Club has in both the sporting history of the University and its future.
There will be a pre-lecture reception from 6pm in the Thomas Lord Suite. The lecture will start at 7pm to conclude around 8pm.
Hawks and Ospreys Members, past and present are welcome.
Mike Brearley: for those members for whom the past may be ‘another country’, Mike is now a retired English first-class cricketer who captained Cambridge University, Middlesex and England. He captained his country in 31 of his 39 Test Matches , winning 17 and losing only four. He was the President of the MCC in 2007–08. Since his retirement from professional cricket he has pursued a career as a writer and psychoanalyst, serving as President of the British Psychoanalytical 2008–10. He was awarded an OBE in 1978.
