Planning a School Prom in Tunbridge Wells

Organising a school prom can be stressful, especially if this is your first time planning a large scale event at a venue. Our team at One Warwick Park Hotel are here to help – if you are looking to book a venue for a school prom in Tunbridge Wells with easy transport a short distance away, then we are what you are looking for.


There are a lot of variables to consider when arranging a prom event, from whether your classmates have allergies that need to be considered to how everyone will be getting back home when the party is over.

Here are a few things to think about when selecting your Tunbridge Wells venue for a school prom:
  • Location – When you are planning a school prom in a town like Tunbridge Wells, you must consider how everyone will arrive at the venue and return – especially for a sixth form ball where alcohol is being served. One Warwick Park Hotel is situated a short distance away from the Tunbridge Wells train station, bus stop and taxi ranks for a quick ride home.
  • Function Rooms – Before deciding on a venue, ask for a tour of the facilities so you can look at the function rooms and decide whether they will fit your vision. Many hotels will have a cap on how many guests they can host at a time in each function room. Make sure that the venue you select has the facilities to host your whole year group before booking.
  • Menu – Here at One Warwick Park we offer dining at our sister restaurant STEAK, with a range of options to choose from for your prom menu. We also have a range of non-alcoholic drinks for you to choose from.
  • Music – No prom would be complete without a dance floor to enjoy. Here at One Warwick Park we have a list of suppliers that we have worked with regularly and provide a fantastic service, including a DJ.
  • Transport – Situated close to the train station and the Tunbridge Wells taxi ranks, our hotel is easy to find for parents picking up students once the school prom has finished.
Prom planning is generally handled by a student committee for the rest of the students in the year. As such it is crucial that you keep in mind the other students’ budget and preferences when it comes to arranging your school prom. Having a survey or questionnaire sent out to your classmates can be a great starting point to work with.

With fantastic meals for our guests, as well as lovely function rooms for you to enjoy, we offer a flexible and professional service to help you create an incredible prom. Our staff are practiced at helping our clients plan events to remember. If you are struggling finding suppliers for decorations or are having trouble managing your budget, our staff will be glad to help you plan a prom to be proud of.
