As this is a formal academic event, you will need to arrange gown hire for your graduation ceremony. Gown hire is booked from 25 July via Ede & Ravenscroft. To ensure a gown is available for you on the day, you will need to have booked your gown least 21 days before your graduation ceremony.
Gown hire consists of gown, hood and mortar board.
We recommend smart, traditional or national dress under your gown. The gowns are quite heavy and will need to be secured to your normal clothes in order to stay in place, so it’s best if you wear a shirt or blouse so that the hood can fastened on a button. Alternatively, bring some safety pins. You may also find it helpful to bring some hair clips with you to keep your mortar board secure.
You can order your gown from 25 July.
You'll be able to take advantage of an online discount from Ede & Ravenscroft. In order to be eligible for the online discount you need to book your gown online before the deadline date (which is 21 days prior to your ceremony).
Orders can also be made over the phone by calling 01223 861854. Opening hours are 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. Please note that you won't receive the online discount if you order by phone.
All gown orders made by phone are followed up by a confirmation card sent through the post. Please bring your confirmation card with you on the day.
