Ede & Ravenscroft Logo


Ede & Ravenscroft is London’s oldest tailor, with a heritage that stretches back over 325 years. In 1689 the company was entrusted with the ultimate commission: to create the robes for the coronation of William and Mary, and since has created robes for 12 English coronations. Today, Ede & Ravenscroft is proud to hold all three royal warrants, and enjoys longstanding associations with academic institutions from around the world.

 Ede & Ravenscroft has recently expanded its range of graduation services from gown hire and photography by offering videography, ticketing and other event management support services. A full range of services is available upon request.

We are most grateful to Ede and Ravenscroft for their generous support. This is an exciting development as the company will sponsor our symposium and key ANTF events throughout 2015. Thanks also go to the HEA for their continued support, De Montfort University who are sponsoring the drinks reception at the Symposium, and to Play Doh (Hasbro) for their donation of colourful pots of fun.
