How to access the online booking

The online booking portal will open at 10am on Wednesday 18 September 2019 until 11.55pm on Tuesday 8 October 2019

Shortly before the online system opens, we will email you the link you need to book your place and that of your guests. The link won't work until the time stated in the email. The password you need will be included in the email.

Click on the link and follow the instructions through. If you are struggling, please download our Step-by-step guide to booking your place.

Booking will close at 11.55pm on Tuesday 8 October 2019. Beyond this time and date, a place at the advertised ceremony can no longer be guaranteed and it may not be possible for you to attend a ceremony with your course colleagues or to have any guests in the main venue. 

How many tickets you can book

During the booking process you will be asked how many tickets you want to order. If you are struggling with the process, please download our Step-by-step guide to booking your place. Please remember that if you want to bring a child over 24 months then they must have their own ticket and they will not be allowed in the venues without one.

When you reach the relevant screen (copy below) click on the arrow key in the drop-down box to select the number of tickets you require for each of the venues.

For St Paul's Hall - you need to order one ticket for yourself and a maximum of two tickets for your guests. So:

  • if you want to attend without guests, select 1 ticket
  • if you want to attend with one guest, select 2 tickets
  • if you want to attend with two guests, select 3 tickets

For the live video link lecture theatre - you can order a maximum of two tickets for guests. So:

  • if you don't want any video link lecture theatre tickets, leave it as 0 tickets
  • if you want one video link lecture theatre guest ticket, select 1 ticket
  • if you want two video link lecture theatre guest tickets, select 2 tickets

You can't have more than the maximum number of guest tickets at this time so please don't try to book more. Even if you return to the system and get a different booking reference number only your first order will count and anything in excess of this will be cancelled and you won't get the tickets. 

Guest tickets are free of charge but are only guaranteed in the main venue if ordered before the deadline. All tickets are collected on the day and nothing will be posted out to you.

If you are having difficulties, please see the Help sheets and guides section below for downloadable guides with screen shots to help you through the process.
