It was a night to remember for students at a centre for adults with learning disabilities when the venue held its first prom.
There was music, dancing and smiles all round as students glammed up to enjoy the red carpet, star-studded event.
Some students arrived in limousines and vintage cars while one pupils arrived in style in a sports car followed by an entourage of scooters.
Manager Kris Harrold said: “It was an unbelievable night.
“It was pretty much perfect, everything went to plan and most importantly everybody had a great time.

“Most of us take it for granted that we have been to weddings, proms or posh events and have had the chance to get dressed up and enjoy a night to remember, for many of our students this will have been the first time they could get involved in something like this.
“It’s definitely going on the calendar as a yearly event. We had so much support from local businesses, parents and staff. It was an unforgettable night and there are many thank you’s to many people for making it all possible.”
