We now have the ticketing information for the Festival of Remembrance 2017. Any member of the St. James’s Branch that would like to enter the ballot for tickets to the evening performance of the Festival should contact Lawrence Butler Perks, the National Branches District Secretary, indicating their desire to attend the festival and whether they have attended the Festival in the last five years. Members should also provide the following information for security purposes: First name, surname, address, date of birth, place of birth, telephone number, and email address (where applicable).

 Applications may be sent by email to nationaldistrict.mso@rbl.community or by post to 199 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1AA. The deadline for receipt of applications is 12:00 on Monday 21st August. Any applications received after this time will not be considered unless there are any surplus tickets available.  Those who have been successful in the ballot It is the Branch’s policy that, where more members apply than there are tickets available, a ballot will be run in which preference will be given to members who have not attended the Festival in the past five years. This ensures that as many of the Branch’s 17,000 members as possible get an opportunity to attend the Festival.
