    In association with the South Australian Cricket Association and the Bradman family, the Britain-Australia Society has organised a “once in a lifetime” dinner at lords  to be held a week before the start of the Lords Ashes test match.  

    We are hopeful that the Bradman Exhibition will be transported from the Adelaide Oval in time for our visit.

    Greta Bradman, recent recipient of the prestigious 2013 Australian International Opera Award and grand-daughter of the Don, has agreed to sing for us.

    The Lord’s test match square will be floodlit for the whole evening.
