The Patron’s Lunch


On Sunday June 12th 2016, The Mall in St James’s Park was transformed for its largest ever street party in celebration of The Queen’s patronage of over 600 charities and organisations on the occasion of her 90th birthday.


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, who all took part in a classic British ‘street party’.


Over 100 ARNO members, friends and family attended.
