After learning that there would be no prom for Year 11 students leaving Culverhill School, a school for children with complex learning needs in Yate, Bence Head of Design Jason Perkins approached MD James Brown, who agreed to sponsor the event.
After approaching other businesses in the area for assistance, Jason and parent Suzanne Josham, (whose son attended WH Bence for work experience) set about organising a night to remember for 25 excited 16 year olds!
The Armadillo Youth Cafe in Yate was quickly sourced as the perfect venue to hold the event, which had an “Oscars” theme, complete with twinkling mirrors and 6ft gold Oscar statue.
The event kicked off to the perfect VIP start, with red carpet and a professional photographer on-hand to capture the guest’s star arrivals. Some students chose to arrive in style – with an Audi R8 and a classic car lining up to drop off their guests.
All students were treated to a non-alcoholic cocktail on arrival, and “DJ Josh”, also a Culverhill student provided the music. Live music was the order of the day during the two-course meal, followed by more dancing to the resident DJ.
A fabulous time was had by all – and WH Bence would like to take this opportunity to thank the local businesses who helped us make this possible:
Rich McD Photography, All Signs, CJ Prop Hire and Events,Armadillo Youth Café, Future Brides, Fired up Ceramics, Balpa Music Academy, Morrisons, Hobbs House Bakery, Bath Race Course, Clear Brew Bath.
