Emirates Old Trafford hosts special event with Sir Michael Parkinson

Emirates Old Trafford is hosting an exclusive event and cricket package with the one and only Sir Michael Parkinson during Roses clash.

Held on Sunday 21st May; the same day as Lancashire face Pennines rivals Yorkshire in the Specsavers County Championship, guests have the unique opportunity to not only enjoy the game from the premium and intimate surroundings of the Lancaster Suite, but will be able to listen to and meet the man who’s met everyone; Sir Michael Parkinson.

Exclusive to just 50 guests, this package gives you access to our premium padded balcony seating to enjoy the Lancashire and Yorkshire rivalry as well as a sumptuous Sunday lunch to be served at 1pm, free car parking, and official match score card.

The intimate interview with Michael will be conducted by his son, who has worked as a producer on the Parkinson Show and appeared with Michael on his ‘one man’ theatre shows.

Peter Young from the Lancashire County Cricket Club Foundation said: “This is truly a once in a lifetime experience for cricket fans to experience not only the popular Lancashire v Yorkshire match from the stunning Lancaster suite, but to be joined by a national treasure. Michael has very kindly agreed to join us for the special game, and it will be a real treat to see the interviewer become the interviewee.”

With exclusive access to one of cricket’s most hotly anticipated matches, and a one off opportunity to witness an interview with one of the UK’s, if not the World’s, most prolific interviewers, this really is a day not to be missed.

Hurry. Only 50 tickets are being offered for this exclusive event, and at just £100 are selling quickly. Book now by contacting Peter Young on or by calling 0161 868 6840.
