School Formal Venues Hire Guide

It requires time and effort planning a school social, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be stressful. We’ve included some helpful tips and info to help you plan the party of the decade.

  • Plan your budget – Before you even begin looking at venues for your school social, make a list of everything you need and calculate a budget. This will allow you to narrow down your options.
  • Get a head start – To avoid disappointment, book your venue well in advance. We recommend at least 6 months before.
  • Easy access – Try to look for venues within a 30-minute drive from school. Many students are shuttled by parents. You can also use a limo, a taxi or a car hire service which charges per kilometre.
  • Safety first – When looking at venues, safety is key, especially for mischievous teens. Also, consider venues that don’t have multiple function rooms where students might disturb another party.
  • Planning on a balloon drop or confetti cannon? – These can be messy but also great for that perfect Instagram pic! Keep in mind these confetti cannons really leave a lot of mess and might incur additional cleaning costs.

School formal venue prices vary wildly based on size and location, however, we’ve managed to put together some basic estimates for you to start with.

  • Per person – Pricing all depends on how elaborate you want your catering. For a school formal in Sydney, expect to pay between $65 to $125 per person. Most venues offer a school formal package which is an all-inclusive rate. These packages often include more than just food; some offer unlimited soft drinks, basic decor, a DJ or an on-site event planner.
  • Minimum spend – A minimum spend will get you a free venue, as long as you are spending a set amount of money. For a school formal venue in Sydney, you can budget on anything from $1,500 - $14,000 for a minimum spend option.
  • Hire fee – Some venues charge a hire fee exclusive of catering. Expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $6000 for full day hire.
