Graduating? The ball’s in your court

Graduating? The ball’s in your court

10 September 2018

As you begin the countdown to graduating, you’re probably looking forward to the next step, whether that’s work, travel, or further study. There’s no better way to mark the end of a chapter with those you’ve built close friendships with over the years, than to have a ball or prom to celebrate the occasion.

There’s nothing quite like donning those suits, tuxedos, and ball gowns to really celebrate in style. If you’re on the team for organising your graduation ball or prom, you’re likely to have certain requirements of a venue.

If you have a date in mind, make sure you book your venue early to secure it. It’s likely the date will fit around the end of exams, so ensure your venue can accommodate you. You’ll also need an indication of the numbers attending your ball or prom; this will have an impact on the size of room and venue you need. You’ll want to discuss food options too, and cater for those with any allergies or specific dietary requirements.

Once you’ve got a suitable venue and date secured you can think about transport to and from your event. Stylish and discreet, or big and showy?

The Mercure Brighton is a Grade II listed Victorian hotel, offering its own unique features to complement your graduation ball or prom. With a choice of the traditional Ballroom or the more modern West Pier Suite, you can choose the best room to suit your numbers and style of celebration. Perfectly located on Brighton seafront the hotel offers the ideal backdrop for your graduation ball or prom.

We’ll be happy to discuss catering options with you, and the extras, from wine on the tables, to a disco or live band for entertainment, just get in touch.
