We spent a lot of time looking at venues and wanted the perfect location that was suitable for everyone, we have our own disabilities and made sure it was suitable for all those with disabilities and illnesses. (if you have any specific issues please contact us and we will be happy to accommodate you and your needs)
We choose the Princess Alexandra Auditorium located in the picturesque town of Yarm. It’s attached to Yarm school, which is a premier private school in the North East and it’s like no school hall you’ve ever been in, it’s hosted the likes of Westlife and Jimmy Carr.
It’s located on the Tees riverside, the outside of has a beautiful balcony with seating, if weather permits you can relax and take some pictures here. Then indoors has a large bright foyer with large comfy seating and the downstairs bar (with lift) has further seating next to the bar. There will is extra rooms that we will have access to if you’re feeling over whelmed and needing some quiet time.
We have chosen a 3 course meal for the soirée, we haven’t yet finalised the food choices, this will be confirmed closer to the time when the venue give us the food options, we will make sure all dietary requirements are accommodated for.
The food will be served at your table in the main hall, we really want you to meet and mingle with lots of people so will be doing a seating plan. there will be 10 tables and these will be in a semi circle around the dance floor.
There will be loads of opportunities and locations to take your own photos throughout the night but we have also arranged a professional photographer to be there to capture your me made dresses in all there glory!
We’ve booked a top band for the evening that will get you dancing and swirling on the dance floor. They do covers of all the best songs and closer to the date we will be taking requests for the band to play on the night.
Most of all we want you to come along and meet your fellow sexists and make new sewing friends!
Happy Sewing Sam and Jen
