Citizenship ceremonies

You need to attend a citizenship ceremony if you’re 18 or over and have successfully applied to become a British citizen.

Once the Home Office have told you that your British citizenship application was successful, you can contact us to book your ceremony.

We hold citizenship ceremonies in groups of up to 15 people in The Venue at The Curve. It is free to attend a group ceremony.

Email to book your ceremony. If you do not have an email address, you can call 01753 787600 and leave and message with your contact number. A Registrar will call you back to book your ceremony. It's much quicker if you can email.

Private ceremony

If you would like to have a private ceremony there is a charge.

During the ceremony

You’ll have to make an oath of allegiance (or an affirmation if you prefer not to swear by God) and a pledge. This means you promise to respect the rights, freedoms and laws of the UK.

At the end of the ceremony you’ll be presented with your certificate of British citizenship and a welcome pack.
