Our citizenship group ceremonies are held every month in Stockton's historic Town Hall. The ceremony signifies and celebrates the importance of becoming a British Citizen.

Our ceremonies are designed to welcome you into full membership of the British family and into citizenship of the United Kingdom.

We also offer private citizenship ceremonies which are held at Stockton Register Office to those customers who would prefer an individual ceremony.

For information on private citizenship ceremony fees, please visit the Births, deaths, marriages and civil partnership webpage.

Contact the Register Office to find out more information about citizenship ceremonies or to book a private citizenship ceremony or visit the GOV.UK website to find further information about citizenship.
