Citizenship ceremonies

Citizenship rights are granted by the Home Office, who ask us to arrange the ceremony where prospective citizens can complete the process.

Ceremonies take place approximately every six weeks at the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare.

Attendees are welcomed into citizenship after swearing or affirming an oath, and are then presented with their certificate of naturalisation. Prospective citizens can bring up to two guests to witness the ceremony.

New citizens who are unable to attend one of the regular ceremonies can choose to have a private ceremony. This takes place at the register office during the early evening or the weekend, and citizens can invite up to six guests. The current fee is £137.
