Once a year, Wormsley, John Paul Getty’s spectacular homemade ground near Henley, plays host to Wisden. Near enough the entire London office converge on the ground, accompanied by a very large number of anonymous corporate people (who we are indebted to; thanks a lot; you pay our wages [insert sycophancy here]). And it was spectacular.

After sampling the sponsor’s beer, Pimms and rum during the afternoon, and finishing it off on the bus home, many Wisden people converged on the nearest pub to Paddington. And come closing time, many had trouble remembering who they were and what they did – nevermind where they lived. I was steaming and it was a brilliant end to a damn fine day out.

Before beer took over the day, I took quite a few photos and will stick them up here once I’ve recovered.
