Academic dress

Please click here to download your order form then send the completed form to Ede and Ravenscroft.  Please follow all instructions carefully to ensure your gown is booked. We advise that gowns and hats are booked in advance to avoid disappointment on the day, as the gown supplier only carries limited additional gowns. 

We recommend that students wear a light colour blouse/shirt and black trousers/skirt and guests dress “smart casual”. 

When completing your form you will be asked to provide your height and head size. This will help to ensure you have the correct sized gown on the day. 

Ede and Ravenscroft are the official suppliers of the gowns for the award ceremonies we hold in Liverpool and so the gowns and robes will be like those used in Liverpool. 

We do NOT recommend any other supplier.
