We are looking forward to welcoming you and your guests to Graduation 2019.
We have been advised that there are planned protests due to take place across the city centre starting Monday 15 July at 10.00 until Friday 18 July 18:00. All travel routes into and throughout Leeds will see a significant increase in traffic, so please consider your journey carefully and allow plenty of extra time.
You should arrive at least 90 minutes before your ceremony starts. This is to ensure you have enough time for registration, gowning, photography and taking your seat.
For your safety, security at the first direct arena will be in place. Please ensure that you have your tickets with you. Guests without a ticket will not gain access to the venue. Large bags are not permitted in the first direct arena and all guests will be subject to a search before entering.
