Additional ticket/wristband allocation for postgraduates
If there are any spare tickets/wristbands, these will be evenly allocated using the waiting list on Monday 5 March after the closing date of Friday 2 March. You will be informed by e-mail how many tickets/wristbands you can have and provided with a link to the online store to pay. The deadline to book additional tickets/wristbands is Friday 16 March.
Additional ticket allocation for undergraduates
If there are any spare tickets/wristbands, these will be evenly allocated using the waiting list on Monday 18 June after the closing date of Friday 15 June. You will be informed by e-mail how many tickets/wristbands you can have and provided with a link to the online store to pay. The deadline to book additional tickets/wristbands is Friday 22 June.
Please note: This system is operated on a first-come first-served basis, so the earlier you book your initial ticket/wristband allocation the higher up the waiting list you will be.
NOTE: We always do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible, but the Cathedral does have limited seating, so once the seats are booked, we cannot accommodate any more.
If we cannot offer you any or some of your additional tickets/wristbands we will keep you on the waiting list, so if any tickets/wristbands are cancelled, we can offer these to those on the waiting list.
There are many graduands in a similar position with families flying in from abroad. For this reason, we are unable to offer one graduand all the tickets/wristbands they need as we would have to do the same for anyone else in the same position. This could then result in those who were lower down the waiting list losing out.
