Five tips to plan the perfect leavers’ ball

West Park dining room place settingsThey say your school days are the best days of your life.  What better way to let off all that post exam steam than by having a leavers’ ball to remember. Forget trying to jazz up your school hall, celebrate in style with one of our ball packages, here at West Park.

Have you been given the responsibility to plan the ball? You’ve got the best job! Check out our five tips to help you create a spectacular evening for you and your classmates.

1. Have you got a theme?

A themed party can be a lot of fun, and gives you an opportunity to let your hair down and celebrate the end of school. If you can’t decide on a theme, why not put a list together for your fellow classmates to choose from. Whether it’s red carpet glamour to a night in Vegas, we can help you capture it at West Park.

2. Food and catering

Our menu won’t disappoint your guests and nor will the cost. Starting at just £24.95 per person, you’ll be able to enjoy a three course meal that could include tasty treats like tomato and basil soup with a crusty bread roll, chicken breast with bacon wrapped chipolatas and a lightly roasted jus, and sticky toffee pudding with hot toffee sauce and ice cream. Yum!

Just give us a call to have a chat about your requirements; we’ll be able to put together a menu to suit both your taste buds and your budget.

3. What to wear?

Although the girls usually spend a lot more time than the guys finding the perfect ensemble, having the right outfit is one of the most important things for everybody.

Your theme can play an important part here,  if you’re going for fancy dress do you need a hand in finding the perfect costume? Our events team can help by linking you up with local suppliers.

4. Music

Whether you’re planning on getting groovy to a live band or dancing to the latest tunes from a DJ, there’s plenty of room at West Park for whatever you fancy. A disco is included in the price of some of our packages, and we can help if you’d like details of local bands. 

5. That little extra something

You might want to think about adding a few extra touches to make the celebration extra special. For a lasting reminder of the evening why not consider a photo booth, or a sweet cart for guests to help themselves to? We’re happy to help make your event the best in town.

From the early stages of planning through to the evening, our West Park events team will help you put together a night to remember.
