2018 summer graduations at Theatre Royal

Bath Abbey is currently undergoing very major renovation works, including repairs to stabilise its floor, which means that we need to find an alternative venue for next year, prior to returning to the Abbey.

The University is therefore working with another of the city’s prestigious organisations, the Theatre Royal Bath, to host our 2018 summer graduation ceremonies.

The Theatre Royal will provide an impressive setting to celebrate our students’ achievements, with benefits including comfortable seating and improved views of the proceedings for families and friends. The venue also offers a similar capacity to the Abbey and the same city centre location.

Our summer graduation ceremonies take place week commencing 9 July. Winter ceremonies, which take place in the Assembly Rooms, are unaffected.

Mark Humphriss, University Secretary, said: “As soon as it became clear we could not hold this year’s graduations in the Abbey we set about finding the best possible alternative.

“I am delighted that we have been able to secure the Theatre Royal and we are going to considerable lengths to ensure that it will be just as special.”
