    Hi everyone.

    I've got my year 13 prom soon, and it's going to cost me £40 for just the ticket! The ticket includes a meal and a free small photograph.

    Was just wondering how much everyone else paid for their year 13 prom, and what it included?

    I'm sure my year 11 prom wasn't so expensive.

    my year 13 prom was about £20 excluding drinks, £40 is a tad expensive yes, but i'd go if i were you, you'll regret it otherwise take this from someone who is at uni and wishes they were still on steaking terms with most of the people i met through secondary school

    I don't quite remember the exact price now but it wasn't as much as £40 and we had a meal at it.

    I think it's about thirty quid but that doesn't include anything like a meal, drink or photo.

    About £25 I think. And the teachers bought us all wine. Decent.

    Wow, I've never had a prom in school and I've never been to one.
    I don't know the prices of things in pounds so I can't help so much, but I hope you have a good time!

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I'm not sure whether to go or not, as it seems a lot of my year aren't due to holidays ect.

    Also, it's expensive for just the ticket, without the additional cost of buying a dress, shoes and drinks..
    My year 11 prom wasn't that great due to my entire year being kicked out early due to drug use in the toilets.. :rolleyes:

    My leaving prom was about £35-£45, I think. That included a three course meal(with wine) and a champagne reception, plus we chose one of the posher places available to us.

    £32 but it's a surprisingly good deal, really posh hotel in the centre of Manchester, 3 course meal and half a bottle of wine and champagne cocktails for everybody? Can't argue with that.

    I think it was about 30 quid including meal and some wine. Not bad especially since it was in the Hilton in Manchester

    Mine was £45. You got a 3 course meal and free pick and mix... it wasn't worth it really at all.

    Everyone complained that it was so much more than our Year 11 one but they just didn't remember the price, I didn't bother going to that but even that was £40 and apparently was even worse so I'm glad I didn't bother.

    Mine was £20 and it was held in my actual school hall.. and the canteen staff cooked a small buffet. We'd done a ****load of fundraising throughout the year too, so to be honest, I can't fathom what I paid for.

    In all honesty if that's including a proper three course meal and it's being held in a pretty nice venue then that's not a bad deal. Obviously it's a fair amount of money, but that's how much things like that cost. I can't remember how much my leavers ball in year 11 was, and our ones at college were just loud music in the school hall with a questionably-licensed bar so they were only £10-15 I think. May balls at Cambridge are £100+ a pop although admittedly they're awesome.
