Join a Hilton Honors cricket event in Manchester

If you like your cricket and live in the Manchester area, Hilton Honors has a good deal for you.
On Friday 16th July, you can join Lancashire and England star Jimmy Anderson for lunch.
Hosted at Emirates Old Trafford by ex-Lancashire player Warren Hegg, the event will include a meal and a 60-minute Q&A session.
After lunch, you will be able to watch Lancashire Lightning play their T20 game against Durham. Note that the Lancashire CC website shows a 6.30pm start for the game so I’m not sure how the timetable for the day will work, unless it is a late lunch …..
The event is VERY good value.
You can redeem 20,000 Hilton Honors points for two tickets.
At our standard 0.33p valuation, this is £66 of Hilton points for both of you to get lunch, attend the Q&A and see the evening T20 game. It isn’t clear where you watch the game from – do you remain in the executive areas or get standard seating?
There are five pairs of tickets left at time of writing. You can redeem here.
If you are short of points, Hilton is currently offering a 100% bonus when you buy points via this link.
