Citizenship ceremonies are the final step in the process of becoming a British citizen.

The ceremony is to:

  • Celebrate getting your British citizenship
  • Welcome you as a new citizen into the community
You will:
  • Make an oath or affirmation to Her Majesty the Queen
  • Make a formal and public pledge that you will be a loyal citizen of the United Kingdom
We are responsible for citizenship ceremonies for anyone who lives in the city.
