Dress to impress with Once Upon A Prom

Once Upon A Prom provides Barnsley students with affordable prom wear to hire in the North East and Dearne area, without scrimping on quality.

For 2019, the two separate projects that saw success last year have been combined to become bigger and better. This year, the scheme will work in partnership with the North East and Dearne area teams and members of the community.

There are plenty of options available to people looking for their picture-perfect prom attire with over 300 dresses and over a 100 suits to fit a range of sizes and styles including accessories with shoes, jewellery and bags. The team have an array of raffle prizes up for grabs including pin-up hair appointments, beauty treatments and even photo shoots!

Nicky Oates, the founder of the Once Upon A Prom project, said: “We’re thrilled to be growing the project from last year’s success. There’s no better feeling than helping young people celebrate their education and success without breaking the bank.”

“We have a range of fabulous dresses and suits to get the party started for students. The joining of projects brings together people who are truly passionate about providing beautiful prom wear for everyone.”

Cllr Jenny Platts, Cabinet Spokesperson for Communities, said: “I’d like to share huge congratulations to everyone who’s been involved in the project. It’s wonderful to see partnership working that has such a big impact on young people in the borough.”

The first event will be held at Astrea Academy Dearne’s prom fayre on Thursday 28 February at 6pm.
