Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, the Buckingham Palace Garden Parties have unfortunately been cancelled for 2020.

Buckingham Palace has advised that this year’s attendees will be able to attend next year.  No further details are available as yet, however when official guidance is provided to us, we will forward it to this year’s successful applicants.

Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, and in the interests of public safety, there will be no public audience this year. Those who applied for tickets through the New Zealand High Commission will be able to apply again in the future.

 

Royal Ascot

New Zealand citizens are able to purchase tickets for Royal Ascot by applying online.  (The High Commission does not run a ballot process for the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot due to a change in security requirements.)

More information about Royal Ascot, and how to purchase tickets, can be found on the official Royal Ascot website (external link).  Tickets for Royal Ascot 2021 (external link) will go on sale on the 15th June 2020.  However, this is subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
