It is not advisable to bring children under the age of 5 due to the length of the ceremonies (up to two hours) and this is a long time to expect children to sit still and be quiet. We need quiet as the ceremonies are being recorded and so that the graduands can hear their names being announced to receive their awards. The ushers may ask the carers of children who are being noisy or disruptive to remove them from the auditorium. Children must sit with guests and cannot be seated with the Graduands.

Graduands and guests with special needs

If either you or your guests have any special needs, disabilities or mobility problems that will make access to the graduation ceremonies difficult, please can you specify this when you register. The venue has limited access beyond the ground floor, so it is important to let us know your requirements.
