Duke of Gloucester opens Carnegie Pavilion
HRH The Duke of Gloucester officially opened the Carnegie Pavilion at Headingley Carnegie Cricket Ground today during the lunch break on Day 1 of the Pakistan v Australia 2nd MCC Spirit of Cricket Test Match.
The Duke was joined by Professor Susan Price (Vice-Chancellor of Leeds Metropolitan University) and Yorkshire CCC President, Raymond Illingworth to unveil the plaque which will be housed on permanent display in the Carnegie Pavilion following the conclusion of this Test Match.
The new Carnegie Pavilion is the result of a unique partnership between Leeds Metropolitan University and Yorkshire County Cricket Club that has delivered a dual-use building – the ultimate in coalition design for the credit crunch era. During the academic year, the Carnegie Pavilion will operate mainly as a university teaching faculty and, during the summer holidays, mainly as a world-class Media & Hospitality facility for the cricket club.
