Leeds Metropolitan University Graduation Ceremony

GL events UK has supplied several temporary structures for the University’s graduation ceremony events.


The University required several practical temporary structures for use as a reception, ceremony hall, retail outlets, information points and storage areas.

Structures supplied

A giant structure was used for the main reception and the entrance featured full height windows and glazed doors along the entire width. The area in front of the entrance was ramped and fitted with a green carpet, while a transparent PVC canopy roof let in some light and protected students from the elements.  The gable beneath the canopy was fully branded to read ‘Welcome to graduation’ with the Leeds Metropolitan University logo.

The reception area was linked internally to other temporary structures that were used for catering and toilets.

A hexagonal Ultimate Pagoda structure was used for storage areas, plus other smaller pagodas for retail units and information points.

In total 1,700sqm of temporary structures were supplied.

In 2014 the University changed its name to Leeds Beckett University.
