The Ceremony of the Nomination of High Sheriffs will take place on that date in Court 4 (the Lord Chief Justice’s Court) at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL. At this ceremony the names of those nominated for the Office of High Sheriff for the years 2024, 2025 and 2026 will be read out in court. A tea party will take place afterward at a nearby venue.
The Secretary will be writing in September to all High Sheriffs in nomination for 2024 and for 2025 inviting them to attend. This event provides a good opportunity for those in nomination to meet each other. It may be possible for a few 2026 nominees to attend as well but space in court is limited. The Association will not know the names of the 2026 nominees so it will be up to such nominees or their proposers to contact the Secretary should they wish to attend.
