It looks like a sentry Palm to me..

Sentry Palm - you can leave it outside as long as it does not get frosty. The rain and wind will help with the dust on it and perk it up for sale.

Thank you everyone for your help, brilliant! It just kind of got out of control with growing up and as my father lives in a flat it has to go!!!!!!!
Thanks again xx

I'm glad to see this thread - I've got one of these, had it for ten years, could never decide which palm it was, so Howea belmoreana it is. Never heard the name Sentry Palm before though, although apparently it can also be called Parlour Palm.

Also known as Kentia Palm. Outside is fine, but yes, watch out for frost--I would bring it in when the night temps are below 7ยบ C.
