Serpentine Park Nights. Between June and October 2015, the Serpentine Galleries presents Park Nights, an annual series of live events in the Serpentine Pavilion 2015, designed by selgascano.

The seven events, comprising theatre, dance, choreography, film and music, include new commissions by artists that explore questions around the body and the stage. In a theatrical performance incorporating film and philosophy, Fleur Melbourn imagines Thelma and Louise’s protagonists in the afterlife, while Jesse Darling re-thinks themes from the classical play Antigone through a contemporary perspective. Christodoulos Panayiotou presents a new version of his performative lecture–reading Dying on Stage, which incorporates new choreography for dancer Jean Capeille. Drawing Park Nights to a close Mette Ingvartsen presents Speculations, a piece which addresses transformation and imagination in the choreographic process. This year’s series also includes performances by Christian Wolff with Apartment House ensemble and an evening dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the legendary International Poetry Incarnation, with poet Michael Horovitz.

Friday 10 July, 8pm. An Evening of Poetry. Booking essential via Ticketweb.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary year of the International Poetry Incarnation at the Royal Albert Hall, poets and musicians gather for an evening in the Pavilion, including legendary beat poet Michael Horovitz as well as poets Rachael Allen, Heather Phillipson, Kayo Chingonyi, Andrew Durbin, Renee Gladman, Holly Pester, Vanessa Vie and many more. Check the webpage for programme updates.

Friday 31 July, 8pm. Fleur Melbourn, Thelma & Louise. Booking essential via Ticketweb.

In this new commission incorporating film, theatre and philosophy, artist Fleur Melbourn presents a performance in which figures from the after-life discuss mortality and the notion of blasphemy. Fleur Melbourn’s sculptures, films and installations touch on the catastrophic as an attempt to unpick the peculiarities of the human condition. Pre-production kindly supported by the Royal College of Art.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
