Looking for a Prom venue?

Looking for a Prom venue?

16 July 2018

Are you responsible for organising your school prom? Does the thought of it leave you wondering where to start? We know it can be daunting organising a large event, particularly when there may be exams going on too.

Here are some top tips to help keep you calm, and get you on your way for a prom to remember:

First things first. How many people will be coming to prom? Knowing how many people to cater for can help you select a suitable event venue that can accommodate everyone.

Do you have a date in mind? This is important, as you’re probably tying in prom with the end of exams, so will have a specific date you’re looking for. Check with your chosen venue that it’s available, and book it as soon as possible.

Food options will need to be considered. Looking for a formal setting, or a light buffet? It’s likely with a large number of guests you’ll have specific dietary or allergy requirements that will need to be accommodated. Check with your chosen venue that they can help; the Chef should be able to advise of any allergens, and provide alternative dishes to cater for all.

Added extras…

You might be looking for more to help make the event truly memorable. Live band, photo booth, DJ, themed decorations, or even a first drink included. Whatever you have in mind, discuss your choices with your venue.
