Citizenship ceremonies

We carry out Citizenship Ceremonies for anyone who was granted British Citizenship after 1st January 2004.

All foreign nationals must attend citizenship ceremony as part of the process to become a British Citizen.

The ceremony

Ceremonies are held in the Town Hall every Tuesday afternoon.

A civic dignitary, such as the Lord Mayor, the Lord Lieutenant of the County or the High Sheriff gives a welcoming speech and presents the Naturalisation Certificates.

You also receive a welcome pack from the Home Office and ourselves.

The ceremony ends with photographs and refreshments.
