Applications should be addressed to the Deputy Governor's Office, at the Government Administration Building. The deadline for submission is Thursday, 17 February.

Persons desiring to attend should be citizens or nationals of the Cayman Islands and planning to be in the United Kingdom on any of the dates detailed below. British citizens living outside the UK are also eligible.

Invitations are not, however, extended to diplomatic service staff on leave or to persons who have previously attended one of Her Majesty's garden parties. It should also be noted that applying will not automatically result in an invitation.

Party dates are Wednesday, 29 June, and Tuesday, 12 and 19 July. Successful applicants may be accompanied by a spouse and up to two unmarried children between the ages of 18 and 25. Single guests may take a companion who must be at least 18 years old.

To apply, the following information must be submitted in writing:

  • the applicant's full name, title, and decorations;
  • occupation;
  • marital status;
  • name of accompanying spouse or companion;
  • names and ages of accompanying children;
  • a reliable UK contact address (not a bank or hotel); and,
  • a preferred attendance date, as well as any date which will not be acceptable.

Completed applications may be hand delivered, emailed or faxed to Tristaca Ebanks in the Deputy Governor's Office, no later than Thursday, 17 February. Her email, phone and fax contacts are, 244-2286 or 244-2432, and 949-0877.
