The new fellows ceremony dinner is held following the graduation ceremony of the new fellows. New fellows and all existing fellows are entitled to attend this dinner to celebrate and are eligible to bring up to four guests.
THIS EVENT IS RESERVED FOR NEW FELLOWS, EXISTING FELLOWS AND THEIR GUESTS
WHEN BOOKING A PLACE PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK YOURSELF FIRST (FREE TICKET) AND THEN ADD YOUR PAYING GUESTS
A reception will be held immediately after the ceremony for all attendees, followed by a seated dinner which will be served in the Osler Room at 7.00pm for those that have pre-booked. The new fellow graduating can attend free of charge. The cost for guests at this silver service three-course dinner is £60 per person (including wine).
The dress code is lounge suits and ladies equivalent.
Children aged 12–16 are permitted to attend the dinner within the quota of four guests at a reduced price of £35.
Please note that due to the length and nature of the ceremony, fellows are advised not to bring young children. There are no childcare facilities available, and we are unable to accomodate under 12s at the dinner.
Photography and gown information
We have made arrangements for a photography firm, Tempest Graduation Photography, to be present at the RCP (3.00pm-4.30pm) on the afternoon of your fellowship admission ceremony. Payments are made to them at the time and the contractual arrangement is between yourself and Tempest.
It will not be possible to be photographed with your actual diploma before the ceremony, but a substitute will be available to be held for any photographs. During the ceremony Tempest takes a photograph of each new fellow receiving their diploma from the president and this can be purchased after the ceremony.
Tempest photography also provides a gowning service. New fellows may hire gowns to be worn during the ceremony or for the official photography but it is not compulsory. The hire cost is £45. The gowns can be booked online and the pre-booking will be open 3 weeks prior to the ceremony date. However, you do not have to pre-book as they can be hired on the day at no extra cost.
If hiring a gown, they must be returned after the ceremony and not worn to the dinner.
You may also purchase the gown which has been designed only for fellows of the RCP.
