Nominations for Buckingham Palace Garden Party 2024 31/01/2024

There are tickets available for a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace and we are welcoming nominations from our member councils for who should have one of these limited tickets.

An opportunity for DALC members to attend a Buckingham Palace Garden Party! Our National Association (NALC) is in receipt of 100 tickets to two Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace this year. We have been allocated 4 tickets (2 pairs) for the Party on Tuesday 21 May 2024. It is always a pleasure to be able to nominate individuals from our membership to attend!

We are therefore welcoming nominations from our members councils as to who should have one of these limited tickets. Please read below for more details.

This year, the palace advises that it wishes to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Commonwealth so please consider this when selecting nominees.

There are strict rules on the nomination process, so please read the following guidance:

  • Nominated guests should be from within the council such as a long serving councillor, or a long serving clerk. They should recognise excellent contributions in their field, and in public service, voluntary or community work.
  • Guests should NOT have previously attended a Garden Party. However, if the nominated individual was the accompanying guest (i.e. not the main guest) last time they attended, they  may be nominated in their own right.
  • All nominated guests must be over the age of 18 years and resident in the UK.
  • All nominated guests should be accompanied unless they specifically request otherwise. Any accompanying person must be over the age of 18.

Please note there will be no parking facilities offered this year with the exception of disability badge (Blue Badge) holders who may apply for parking. Regrettably no exceptions will be allowed. Requests for disabled access should be entered on the nomination form as in previous years. An additional form will be included with the nominee’s invitation requesting details of their disability badge, upon receipt of which a parking label will be sent to the guest.

Under data protection legislation, an individual’s consent is required to process their personal data for the purpose of nominating them to attend a Garden Party. You need to obtain consent to process their personal data from all nominees prior to submitting the completed form.

As always there is a very tight deadline for submitting nominations. Please can nominations be made via this form by 2pm, Wednesday 21 February. We will not accept nominations after this time. Due to tight timescales and limited spaces, any incomplete or incorrect nomination forms will be rejected from the process. 

 The two successful nominees, and their guests, shall be notified in the afternoon on Wednesday 21 February. Nominees will be chosen at random i.e. via pulling names from a hat.

If you have any further questions, please do contact us.
