Citizenship ceremonies

You can only attend a citizenship ceremony if you have been granted British citizenship by the Home Office.

You must contact the Home Office to apply for British citizenship (external link).

Making an appointment

If you have been granted British citizenship and received your letter from the Home Office, you will then receive an invite from the Registration Office to the next Citizenship Ceremony. You can confirm your attendance by completing the form below, quoting your Home Office reference number.

Please note you must have received your home office invitation before you can contact us.


Group ceremonies are held at Wigan Town Hall, Library Street, Wigan, on the last Wednesday of every month. You may bring up to 4 guests.
