Book the Mayor

The Town Mayor welcomes invitations to attend events held in the Town and Cinque Port of Dover. If you are looking to book the mayor or deputy mayor to attend your event, all invitations are required in writing, stating the date, time, venue, and background information of your event and what the Town Mayor is required to do.

To understand the civic roles and responsibilities of the Mayoralty, you can view our information on Civic Protocol. You can also view the previous mayors of Dover.

To enable the mayor to participate appropriately at your event, you can either download the following forms to return to us by post or book the mayor online using the form below. Please complete and send this no later than 3 weeks before the engagement where possible.

During the current pandemic (Covid-19) the Mayor of Dover will only be able to accept invitations to an event where strict social distancing is enforced and adherence to all current Government legislation is observed.
Any organisation or individual running such an event must evidence that this is the case and provide an undertaking with regards to this.
