Student Celebrations, Proms and University Dinners

Celebrating important milestones

What’s the biggest event of the school year? Parents and teachers would love for the answer to be exam season, but students would most likely say prom night or the end-of-year dinner!

For many students, prom is a final get-together with friends and teaching staff before following their own paths. A night dedicated to celebrating students’ hard work at a glitzy prom venue, and a chance to get dressed up and let their hair down.

Finding a suitable prom venue to create treasured memories doesn’t have to be a challenge. If you are looking for prom venues or student dinner locations that tick all the boxes – flexible space, modern facilities, event planners and accessibility – look no further. OEC Sheffield is the prom venue for you!
