  • Graduand tickets

    Graduating students do not need a graduation ticket for themselves - tickets are for guests only. However, you must book via ICON by the booking deadline:

    • 1st May 2019 for July ceremony

    After this date the booking system will be closed and it will not be possible for you to attend.

     

  • Guest graduation tickets - complimentary

    Everyone who books their place via ICON before the booking deadline:

    • 1st May 2019 for July ceremony

    will be given the opportunity to book up to TWO complimentary guest graduation tickets. These tickets allow guests to attend the ceremony in the main venue and the Celebratory Reception following the ceremony.

    Seating in the main venue is not allocated and guests can take any seat that is not reserved. Due to the nature of the venue, guests should expect restricted viewing. To compensate for this television screens are in place. Children over the age of 2 must have thier own seat and must be included within your allocation.

  • Children

    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.

  • Additional guest graduation tickets - main venue

    There will be an opportunity to purchase up to an additional two guest graduation tickets (subject to availability*). These tickets allow guests to attend the ceremony in the main venue and the Celebratory Reception following the ceremony. Tickets cost £15 each and will be available from the Online Store.

    Tickets for the July 2019 ceremonies will go on sale on 26th June until 30th June 2019. You will receive information on how to book week commencing 24th June 2019. In the email you will be issued with a passcode. You will need this code to buy your additional tickets.

    Please note the following important information:

    • Additional guest graduation tickets are limited and there is no guarantee of availability.
    • All extra tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. To save yourself time, you may wish to register for the Online Store in advance.
    • Due to the nature of the venue, guests should expect restricted viewing. To compensate for this television screens are in place.
    • Seating is not allocated and guests can take any seat that is not reserved

    * To ensure that ceremonies are fully utilised, they are oversubscribed at the invitation stage to allow for those who do not wish to attend or who do not pass. Consequently, some ceremonies may have additional tickets available and some may not. We must stress that our ceremonies can be very heavily subscribed and we cannot guarantee any additional guest tickets. We don't want anyone to be disappointed so please be prepared and make sure your family are aware of this.
