Answer for Invitation to Assembly Members

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The events organised by the GLA in Trafalgar Square are free and open to all Londoners. There is usually no VIP provision, unless this is something provided specifically by a sponsor or community group, who may invite their own guests. All events are publicised on the GLA website, but to ensure that Assembly Members are advised of key events on Trafalgar Square, Events for London will aim to circulate advance notification to all Assembly Members in future.
