Inviting the Lord Mayor to your event
The Lord Mayor is always happy to receive invitations to events – no matter how large or small – that are taking place within the district. As he/she has a busy diary it is often advisable to ring or email the Lord Mayor’s Office first to check to see whether they are available (see Contact us). You will then be asked to confirm your invitation in writing – either by letter, email or our online form.
Lord Mayors attend many hundreds of different functions throughout their year –including school/workplace visits, prize/certificate presentations, church services/visits to houses of worship, business/charity/theatrical/artistic events, significant organisation anniversaries, community events etc., milestone birthdays for those 90 and over, etc.
- All invitations should be addressed to the Lord Mayor in the first instance.
- Due to high demand it may not always be possible for the Lord Mayor or Deputy Lord Mayor to attend every event to which they are invited.
- Invitations are usually accepted on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, but there are occasional exceptions to this.
- To avoid disappointment, please give us as much advanced notice as possible.
- We are sorry that no invitations can be considered without a minimum of twenty clear days’ notice.
