Late Summer Soiree

Date posted: September 17, 2016


The Abbey Primary School


Where and when?

Saturday the 24th September in the School Hall from 7.30pm-12am for parents to dance the night away!


Late Summer Soiree Q and A



All the proceeds of the event will go towards Abbey School to improve the facilities and opportunities we are able to offer for the children. The money raised will reduce the pressure on the limited school budget. We especially want to improve the Key Stage 2 toilet facilities and aesthetics in the classrooms, such as blinds to improve the visibility of the whiteboards and the learning environment.




Tickets, £20, are available via the School Office, to be paid via Schoolcomms by Friday 23rd September. No physical tickets will be provided. Miss Fenn will have a list of all parents who have paid for their tickets and a complimentary glass of Prosecco will be provided on arrival by Miss Fenn and the Soiree Committee by the front door of the School.


Food and drink


Also included in your ticket will be a pulled pork bap (veggie option available – email Mrs Upton by Thursday 22nd September to secure ) served from 8.30-9.30/10pm. There will be a free Sweetie Stall for those with a sweet tooth!   Mrs Johnston and her team (Mrs Upton, Mrs Ramsey and Mr Ryan) will man the bar in the Practical Room and, weather permitting, a Bottle Bar on the School Field. The bar will be a cash bar and bottles of Prosecco, wine, Peroni, water and real ale will be available along with soft drinks and spirits (gin and vodka).
