Your guests will need to be seated before you, so please ensure that they have their guest tickets before you leave them.
Seats are not allocated and guests can sit in any seat in the venue that isn't reserved. Due to fire regulations we ask that all guests occupy a seat.
Due to the nature of the main venue, guests should expect restricted viewing. To compensate for this, television screens are in place so that guests are able to see as much of the ceremony as possible.
Guests will be asked to queue outside the venues prior to access times and may wish to have an umbrella to hand should the weather be inclement.
Children aged 2 years and over must have their own seat and, therefore, be included in your guest allocation. This is due to fire regulations which require all graduands and guests to be seated for the ceremony.
The ceremony is a formal event and, as such, is not recommended for young children who can become unsettled. Out of respect for other guests, we request that if you do bring small children, you sit at the end of an aisle, near an exit, and take them outside if they become unsettled. Children will not be able to sit with the graduands. You must ensure that you have made suitable supervision arrangements.
