Information on guest tickets, extra tickets and refunds.
Two guest tickets at £30 each can be booked by the deadline of 4pm on 22nd June . Tickets are not transferable to future ceremonies and tickets can be cancelled online up to 4pm on 29th June. No refunds are offered after this date or for graduates or guests that do not turn up on the day of the ceremony. Extra tickets go on sale at a later date.
Children and babies aged 5 years and under are not permitted into the marquee where the ceremonies take place and alternative arrangements must be made for them. Children aged 6 and over need their own seat in the ceremony and there are no discounts given on ticket price. If you arrive with a child under the age of 6 and are unable to use your guest ticket we will not offer a refund. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Guests with children are able to watch the ceremonies via our lecture theatres CG76/77 - you do not need a ticket for this.
Tickets can be collected from registration in the Grove on the day of your ceremony. You must bring photo id and your confirmation email as proof of your registration to collect your tickets. Lost tickets will not be replaced or reimbursed.
We show the ceremonies via a video link in CG76/77 for those guests with young children or without a ticket.
Refunds on guest tickets can be made up to 4pm on 29th June by going on-line and cancelling your booking. After this date refunds can not be made if you decide not to attend.
Refunds can not be made if your guests do not turn up or can not make the ceremony. If you or your guest requires a visa and the visa is refused you must cancel your tickets online by 29th June.
If you are ill on the day of your ceremony and can provide medical evidence a refund may be made in exceptional circumstances. Please contact the graduation office for further instructions by 20th July. We will not offer refunds after this date.
Graduates sit separately to students and will be shown to their seat by a marshal. Guests with disabilities will have reserved seating provided we are notified of the request at the time of registration.
At the time of registration you will be asked whether you have any special requirements that we should be made aware of. Please give as much information as possible and we will try and accommodate your request.
Extra tickets are available on a first come first served basis from 1pm on 25th June until 4pm on 29th June. The number available may vary from ceremony to ceremony. Extra tickets cost £30 each. If you did not register to attend the ceremonies by the deadline of 22nd June you will be unable to access any extra tickets we may have.
If we have any extra tickets they will be available on a first come first served basis for £30 each from 1pm on 25th June by logging back into the registration pages at www.gownhire.co.uk.
If we have any tickets left these will be available to purchase from registration in the Grove on the day of your ceremony only. We are a cashless university and only accept card payments.
