    My school ball was cool. We had it in our main hall/theatre, and a marquee was put up inside it. I was hoping for live music but we had a bad dj who was playing cd's!! Some of the younger teachers were behaving like the teachers from the Channel 4 programme - so that was good

    The food was nice and it was a great night, bloody expensive mind - $35. Drinks were cheap from the bar though, and there was 4 bottles of wine for a table of 8.

    Leavers Ball..s are ACE.
    We just had or medics ball and it was fantastic - even if I spent £90 purely on alcohol even after a bottle of wine each and 2 glasses of champagne, add that to £45 for the ticket and its not really that cheap.

    I loved our leavers ball, it was one of the best night of my life! We hired a local entertainments venue and had a meal and a dodgy DJ, but everyone was so drunk it was a fantastic night. Two of the teachers ended up pulling, even though one of them was married with a kid, such a good night!

    Hungover much, Dave? Sounds great though, if rather pricey! At the May Ball it's all included thank God, and they've laid on ridiculous amounts per person - I guess it would get ugly if they ever ran out.

    Our leavers' ball at school was quite good, but it was officially the "Summer Ball" and was as much for the social climbing parents of the school as it was for the U6th. We had to have parents with us, or be "accompanied" by someone else's parents, although we didn't have to sit with them. Despite that it was very good - the U6th managed to have their fun and the parents did too, only separately. As did some of the teachers...I am still scarred for life by the sight of my 30-40something year old Biology teacher dirty dancing with his new girlfriend :eek:

    We had a sax player through dinner, which was nice, then a band for most of the night - they were very good, but we didn't know a lot of their songs. Then for the final hour and a half we had a disco, which was rather cheesy, but very entertaining considering most people were quite pissed by then. All in all very good.

    I spent a lot of sunday in bed feeling well below my best. As well as rather lighter in the wallet considering at one point I paid £8.50 for a Double Archers and Lemonade.
