Collecting your gown



Gowns can be collected from the Exhibition Centre on the day of your ceremony from the time indicated below. Please bear in mind that you will be asked to be seated in Central Hall for attendance checking 45 minutes before the start of your ceremony. You will need to have collected your gown by this time (and collected your guest tickets and given them to your guests) as once your attendance has been checked you will be asked to remain in your seat in Central Hall. We therefore advise you to allow at least an hour for gown and guest ticket collection as there may be queues.
