The University incurs significant expense in the organisation of the annual Awards 仪式, 而且 in order to cover these costs we charge a nominal fee for guest tickets. We do not make any profit from the sale of these tickets; nor do we charge gradu而且s to attend their own ceremony (many institutions do).
Can I bring a child as a guest to the graduation?
儿童可出席颁奖典礼, although we would ask you to use your judgement in deciding whether it is appropriate for small children to attend what can be a long ceremony. All children should be still 而且 quiet throughout the ceremony 而且 those children who become restless or disruptive will be asked to leave the Cathedral.
What if my guests change their mind or can no longer attend the graduation?
If you have paid for tickets but no longer need your allocation, provided you let us know by 28 October then a refund can be actioned, 但需缴纳5英镑.00行政费.

In order to respect the wishes of the Dean 而且 Chapter of Worcester Cathedral you are requested to remove your mortar board whilst inside the Cathedral.
You should order your academic dress as soon as possible 而且 by 14 October at the latest. Should you miss this deadline you will still be able to hire academic dress on the day of your ceremony, 但它的成本要高得多.
