Proms are a big part of life for school pupils these days. And a group of students and teachers from Berwick Academy enjoyed the unique setting of Ellingham Hall during their special prom event for leavers.
With a red-carpet welcome and mocktails for the group of 60 who made the short trip south, it really was a special occasion.
While you would expect students to enjoy the chance to “bust some moves” and let their hair down, no one quite expected that our resident peacock would be such a huge hit.
Head of Year Jess Angus wrote to us after a fantastic evening and said: “I do owe an apology to the resident peacock… I didn’t realise that a bird would fascinate the students as much as he did.”
The chapel was dressed in gold and black for the Prom and a Northumbrian hog roast fed the peckish pupils.
We had lots of fun welcoming the students. It was good to see them making the most of the fun photo booth, while others took the opportunity to chill in our reception rooms and out in the grounds.
Jess added: “Our Prom was amazing, and I honestly cannot thank your staff enough for the trust and professionalism you had with the students and myself.
“The students had the ‘run of the place’ and they really liked the ability to be able to go and sit somewhere quiet, wander around outside, chill on the roof terrace or have a good dance on the dance floor. I’ve always highly rated Ellingham Hall as a venue and it has exceeded any of the high expectations.”
We’re always happy to make a Prom something extra special! What else would you expect at Ellingham?
With great food options from only £15 per person, a seamless service and space for up to 140 students and staff, we’ll help make your prom, a night to remember!

“The venue exceeded our expectations. Not only did it offer uniqueness, but exclusivity was a key factor in booking. The main Hall offered lots of space for us to work and we found the delegate rates very competitive. The venue comes highly recommended. “

“I have hosted seminars for over 30 years, all over the country at various well-known venues. At Ellingham Hall you remember everything, from the beautiful quirky venue which has retained its historic features, the friendly staff, great service and the delicious food and amazing coffee! The meeting room had good light and was the perfect size for our event. It was lovely to have use of the comfortable reception rooms too for breaks and lunch. I was very impressed with the extra spaces such as the basement games room and rooftop networking terrace. It is a hidden jewel in the North-East and I am planning to return soon for a private family event”

“Our Wedding was everything we wanted and so much more, the team at Ellingham Hall are incredible. We had the most amazing weekend, it was beyond our expectations and a huge part of that was Ellingham Hall and the amazing team. We’ve had so many wonderful comments about the venue and staff I could talk about it all day.”

“The venue was immaculately presented and very welcoming. Easy to find just off the A1, with plenty of parking next to the meeting rooms and closer space to unload equipment. The area provided for breakout/coffee/lunch had plenty of room and was a relaxed environment, which gave delegates the chance to meet each other before the conference. The food and drink was plentiful, and of a good standard. The meeting room itself was well equipped and a nice size for our group, not to feel crowded, but also not lost as can happen in large rooms. The staff were on hand all day and happy to help with any of our requests.”
