New Zealand High Commission London, United Kingdom

2011 Royal Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace

The Royal Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace in 2011 will take place on Wednesday 29 June, Tuesday 12 July and Tuesday 19 July.

Every year the New Zealand High Commission is allocated a limited number of tickets for New Zealand citizens to attend Royal Events in the United Kingdom.

Due to the limited number of tickets available, the High Commission runs a ballot. You may only attend a Royal Garden Party once.

Tickets for all events are non transferable.

How to apply for tickets to a Royal Garden Party

  • The ballot for tickets to the 2011 Royal Garden Parties has now closed.
  • Applicants will be notified by email of the result of their application shortly.
  • We receive on average three times more applications than we have tickets available, so every year there are applicants who are unfortunately unsuccessful. We would remind these individuals that they may apply again next year.

Distribution of tickets

Successful applicants will have their tickets posted by Royal Mail to the address provided on their application form. Tickets are distributed a few weeks ahead of each Party.

The High Commission takes no responsibility for tickets which do not arrive due to the applicant providing an incorrect address or Royal Mail error.

Further information about Royal Events can be found here.
