Request a Lieutenancy Visit
The Lord-Lieutenant attends a wide range of events and ceremonies, across Nottinghamshire, every year as the representative of His Majesty The King. Events attended include voluntary and charity initiatives, award ceremonies and community functions of local significance. The Lord-Lieutenant attends when it is not possible to arrange a Royal visit.
If appropriate, when there is something to celebrate in Nottinghamshire, or somebody special to thank, the Lord-Lieutenant, Vice Lord-Lieutenant or one of the Deputy Lieutenants could be invited to attend to represent His Majesty The King.
If you would like to request a Lieutenancy visit, please email or write to the Lieutenancy Office with details of your event. It is important that you give as much notice as possible, but a minimum of four weeks is requested. Appropriate requests will be given every consideration, but please bear in mind that the Lord-Lieutenant receives far more invitations than they, or the Deputy Lieutenants can attend. The Lieutenancy attends hundreds of events each year, but sadly it is not possible to accept every invitation.
Please include the following information:
Date of the proposed event, arrival and departure times;
Venue address and postcode;
Background information on the organisation and event, including why a visit by the Lord-Lieutenant or a Deputy is relevant;
Full contact details of the organiser;
Details of any specific duties you would like the Lord-Lieutenant or her representatives to undertake.
The request for information is not designed to act as a barrier, only to help manage diaries, so if in doubt do please approach us anyway as we do want to support the community as much as we are able. You will receive a written response to your invitation within two weeks and, if the invitation is accepted, you will be asked to complete an engagement form requesting detailed information. A copy of this form is downloadable here.
