Last week saw graduates of Kingston University once again able to celebrate their graduation in Kingston, rather than in central London, thanks to the Rose theatre.

It was investment by the council and Kingston University that enabled the development to go ahead and it has so far attracted thousands of visitors to its shows.

For the last 3 years it has been used by the University as a venue for graduation ceremonies, which have so far been a great success.

 

Cllr Liz Green said:

“Talking to graduates outside the theatre, they loved being able to have their graduation here in Kingston at such a fantastic venue.

“After studying here for over 3 years it is only right that one of their and their parent’s most memorable moments from University is held here in Kingston.

“We need to get behind this great project, which has become a jewel in the crown of Kingston town centre.”
