Visiting the Lord Mayor
Greeting the Lord Mayor

If you feel that it would be appropriate to invite the Lord Mayor to a function whether it be a celebration of any description, a presentation of certificates or awards, the opening of a new business or garden fete, attend school assemblies or just a visit to your community centre or youth club please contact the Lord Mayor's Chambers at the Civic Centre. Phone : 0191 211 5050 or email - lord.mayor@newcastle.gov.uk

Writing to the Lord Mayor

Letters should be addressed as follows:

The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Newcastle upon Tyne
Lord Mayor's Chambers
Civic Centre
Newcastle upon Tyne

Letters should begin : Dear Lord Mayor

Letters to the Lady Mayoress should begin : Dear Lady Mayoress
When the Lord Mayor is a lady there is no Lady Mayoress. Instead there is a Lord Mayor's Consort. In this case letters should begin Dear Lord Mayor's Consort.

Letters to the Sheriff should begin Dear Sheriff
