Citizenship Ceremonies

What is a citizenship ceremony?

We welcome new citizens at the ceremony and highlight their new rights and responsibilities.

To find out about applying for British citizenship visit the UK Border Agency website.

You can celebrate your new status with your family and close friends at the ceremony. 

You will be asked to swear an oath of allegiance to the Crown and pledge to uphold the values and laws of the UK. We will formally welcome you to our city and encourage you to take part in the community and democratic process.

We want these ceremonies to be enjoyable and meaningful events.

The Home Office will send you a letter which tells you how to book your ceremony.

Please email us here providing your name, Home Office reference number and telephone number and we will contact you within 7 days to arrange your ceremony.
