Due to a very limited number of seats available there is likely to be a ballot. The event is open to a large number of visitors as well as Members and Members’ staff of both Houses, and parliamentary staff, therefore standing room may only be on offer on the day (if you have a specific requirement for seating at this event please make this clear in your application).
Pass Holders must apply for their own ticket and are not permitted to bring guests to this event.
Successful applicants will be notified by 10am on Thursday 12 December.
