ceremonial services: DCMS online payments

DCMS ceremonial Unit is responsible for the infrastructure along the ceremonial route to mark events such as the Diamond Jubilee, Inward State Visits and other ceremonial state occasions.

For some major state occasions the provision of media infrastructure (such as stands for photographers) is made available to media organisations along the ceremonial route for a fee.

If your company has arranged to use these services, DCMS Ceremonial Unit will issue you with an invoice and additional information. Once you have received the invoice, and you wish to pay by credit/debit card, you can make your payment online.

Please do not submit any payment until you have received an invoice. If you have a query regarding payment, please contact us on or telephone  020 7211 6421 (Monday to Wednesday); and 020 7211 2341 (Thursday to Friday)


Entitlement to any refund will be governed solely by the terms and conditions of the agreed contract you have entered into for the ceremonial services.
