When will I receive my guest tickets?

Please make sure that your guests receive their BH Live tickets as the Eventbrite order confirmation is not sufficient to admit guests to the ceremony. Emails from BH Live will be sent from [email protected] and have the title 'Your ticket'. Please be sure to check your inbox regularly including any junk/spam folders for this email. There is no seating allocation so your guests will be able to seat themselves wherever they choose.

Update on travel

Please be aware that train strikes have been announced for 5, 7 and 9 November and there could be continued disruption on other days. There are also strikes planned on the London Overground and Underground services on 10 November. Please check with the train company before travelling.

If you are arriving by car, please allow extra time for travel and parking due to the train strikes. More information about travel and parking can be found on our Graduation FAQ page.

Remember to book photography

The deadline to order your graduation gown and hat to cross the stage at your ceremony has passed. Please visit the Graduation FAQ page to find out your options at this stage. If you would like to pre-book professional photography, please do this by Friday 4 November.
