The CILEX Graduation and Admission Ceremony 2022

The CILEX Graduation and Admission Ceremony is an incredible chance for you to recognise everything that you have been working towards, whether that's been over the past few years or the past few decades. Celebrate your hard work and achievements with loved ones, friends, fellow CILEX members, CILEX Professional Board and CILEX staff.

Saturday 15 October

Ceremony Times:
11:00am & 4:00pm

Central Hall Westminster, London, SW1H 9NH

Booking your tickets
Ceremony only tickets - These tickets allow you and your guests to attend just the main ceremony taking place in the Great Hall. You will need to book your ticket and purchase tickets for any guests you would like to bring. There is no charge for graduating members to attend the ceremony and you are welcome to invite friends and family to celebrate with you, with guest tickets costing £50 each. 

Ceremony + Drinks reception tickets - These tickets allow you and your guests to attend the main ceremony taking place in the Great Hall followed by a drinks reception in the Lecture Hall + Library where you can enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco (a soft alternative will be available) and can celebrate with other members and the CILEX Professional Board. As a graduating member, you are eligible to attend the post-ceremony drinks reception free of charge. For any guests that you wish to invite, there is an additional £5pp on top of the guest ticket price. If you wish to attend the post-ceremony drinks reception please make sure to select the right ticket option for both you and your guests when making your booking.

There are limited places available at both ceremonies and the post-ceremony drinks reception. Graduating member places and guest tickets are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and therefore we encourage you to make your booking as soon as possible to guarantee a place at your chosen ceremony, and the post-ceremony drinks reception. 

Please note that if you or your guests have any children under the age of 5 who will be attending, you will not be required to book a ticket for them, but they will be required to sit on a parent/guardians lap during the ceremony. 

Eligibility checks will be carried out in order to confirm your participation in the ceremony.
