The Peacock Theatre will open for seating about one hour before the ceremony is due to begin.
- Graduands must be seated at least 30 minutes before the ceremony is due to begin
- Guests must be seated at least 20 minutes before the ceremony is due to begin.
Your guests will either be seated in the stalls or in the dress circle; theatre staff will be on hand to help them locate their seats.
Graduands will be seated separately from their guests, in the order that they will be presented. This is determined by:
- Level of degree (e.g. bachelor's degrees are presented before master's degrees)
- Programme name
- Alphabetically by family name
Please note that you must sit in the seat indicated on your ticket. This is to ensure that you are presented in the correct order.
Music will be performed by the Marylebone Trio before the ceremony starts as graduands and guests take their seats.
