Please remember!

  • Guests and graduands enter Butterworth Hall via different doors; please make sure you each have the correct ticket before you separate from your guests. Guests should enter the Hall from the ground floor doors. Graduands should enter the Hall through the doors on the first floor balcony.
  • If you are a wheelchair user or require any assistance please ask a member of our graduation staff at the Information Point situated at the Box Office or ask one of our stewards who will be happy to assist you.
  • Please switch off your mobile phone when entering the Hall.
  • Doors will close promptly at 10.15am for the 11.00am ceremony, and at 2.15pm for the 3.00pm ceremony. We regret that we cannot accommodate you if you arrive after doors close and consequently you will not be able to join your ceremony. Your qualification will then be awarded in your absence.
  • Graduands must sit in the seat they are allocated as names and certificates are called in that order (the seat number which will be printed on your graduand ticket will correspond to the seat number in the Hall, - YOU MUST SIT AND REMAIN IN THIS SEAT). If you are not sitting in your correct seat when doors close, you may be marked as 'absent' when the seating team are conducting their seat checks. Consequently, your name will be removed from the list to be read out and you will not be permitted to take part in your ceremony.
