Luxury car hire firms who could take students to the sparkling night of glitz and glamour event or anybody who thinks they can add to the red carpet night are invited to get in touch to make the second FACET prom a resounding success.

Manager Kris Harrold said: “The team at Facet are rolling out the red carpet again, last year’s prom was such a success, and here we are again making sure our second prom is just as amazing for our students.

“There are still tickets and the prom is open to anybody with a physical or learning disability who are welcome to join the event - tickets are just £8 and include a buffet and disco.”

“A lot of students have never had the chance to celebrate an end of the year event like this so it is a fantastic opportunity.
