Gown hire and photography

Academic gowns are mandatory attire for all graduands. You must hire your gown from Ede and Ravenscroft.

Please order your gowns well in advance of the ceremony (a small number may be available on the day in case of emergency) and before you register for graduation/purchase tickets as you will need to enter your academic gown order number. You will find our Graduation Ceremenoy on Ede & Ravenscroft's website under City College Norwich for both CCN and for Easton College.  

You will be able to collect your gown on the day of the ceremony in the academic gowning marquee. Please ensure this is returned by 5pm on the day.

Ede & Ravenscroft will be available on the day for you to have official photographs taken in the Cathedral Cloisters. You can book a time slot and pre-order your photographs when you order your gown. You can order and pay for photographs on the day but please be aware this may result in having to queue.

The College will also be taking pictures to document the day on social media, website etc. The images may be used to advertise future events and the college's Higher Education courses. The event will also be live streamed.

Please note, by booking your ticket you consent to being photographed and filmed at the event.


To celebrate your achievements we will be publishing the names of all of our graduates in a special Graduation Brochure for the event.

Local media also celebrate your achievements and we supply a list of our graduands to the Eastern Daily Press and the Evening News. If you do not want your details published by the local media, please ensure you select this option when booking your tickets.


Our official supplier of graduation mementos, Campus Clothing Company, will be in the Norwich Cathedral Cloisters on the day. You will be able to purchase a variety of items such as hoodies, mugs and teddy bears to commemorate your achievements at City College Norwich.

If you do not wish your name to be included on graduation souvenirs please make sure you select the right option when you are booking your tickets.
