If you are a graduating student (a "graduand") you must arrive at the Theatre Royal Bath by 1.55pm (50 minutes before the start of your ceremony).
Please make sure you have collected your gown from Bath Pavilion before coming to the Theatre.
On arrival at the Theatre enter through the Scene Dock Doors on Monmouth Street to register.
The Scene Dock doors on Monmouth Street will close at 2.15pm (30 minutes before the start of your ceremony).
The Theatre's front doors will open at 2.00pm and close at 2.15pm.
Guests will be required to show their tickets on the door. You must have a valid ticket to gain access.
Your guests should make sure they are seated in their allocated seats no later than 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony.
Students and guests with specific requirements should speak to ushers if they require assistance.
At this ceremony Professor Chris Budd will give an oration on Dame Celia Hoyles before she receives an honorary degree of Doctor of Education (EdD).
There is nowhere to leave suitcases and travel bags at the Theatre. Café au Lait and Bath Luggage Storage Centre opposite the train station both offer luggage storage.
Travelling to Bath
Bath is a busy tourist city and there is always pressure on car parking. Please leave plenty of time for travelling to Bath and getting to the Theatre Royal.
There is free parking on the Claverton Down campus. We suggest that graduands and their guests park on campus, take a bus into the city and walk to the Pavilion for gowning followed by the Theatre to register and be seated.
