The Patron's Lunch

The Patron’s Lunch was an iconic event recognising the un-relenting support and service our Monarch has given to the community over her 63 year reign. The Mall was the centrepiece to a truly magnificent spectacle with 10,000 guests, the majority of which will be representatives from the Patron’s Organisations, taking part in a classic British ‘street party’.

The invited guests enjoyed a hamper-style lunch at tables positioned along the full length of The Mall, with entertainment and Union flags a plenty. Her Majesty The Queen was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family to celebrate the occasion. Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry resided as Joint-Presidents of The Patron’s Lunch; honouring the dedication shown by Her Majesty to so many charities and organisations.

The day itself promised to deliver an electric festival-themed atmosphere that was enjoyed not only by the lunch guests on The Mall, but also by the general public who were able to soak up the festivities at large screens situated in the Royal Parks; Green Park and St James’s Park.

But the fun and celebrations won't be just happening on The Mall, it is hoped that The Patron’s Lunch will inspire as many people as possible to host their very own Patron’s Lunch in streets along the length and breadth of our nation and across the Commonwealth. These street parties will give local communities a chance to enjoy the fun whilst also providing an opportunity to raise funds directly for local initiatives and community programmes.

We hope that people in Britain and across the Commonwealth will dust off their picnic tables and join us in celebrating this very special occasion.
