Teenagers from Cromer Academy will be putting on a fashion show which promises to be an evening to remember.

The glamorous event is to raise money for the school's year 11 leavers' prom which will be held on June 28.

It has been organised by the prom committee, who have been planning the show, which will be held next Thursday March 14 at the Cromer Academy assembly hall. Doors open at 7pm and it will start at 7.30pm.

About 150 tickets are on sale, which cost £2.50 and can only be bought in advance by ringing the school office on 01263 511433.

The ticket cost includes a non-alcoholic cocktail upon arrival, created and served by GCSE catering students from the academy.

Guests will be able to see casual and smart clothes from Lily B fashion boutique in Cromer in the first half.

The second half will feature 24 different prom dresses from Maisy May Bridal and Prom Shop in North Walsham, which will be modelled by year 11 girls.

Boys from the same year will also be able to have their moment in the spotlight because they will be modelling tuxedos.

Jane Clarke, who runs Lily B, will help behind the scenes and staff from Just Beauty and Genesis Hair Salon will help with make up and hair.

Marlenes School of Dance will open the event and entertain the audience in between the casual day wear and prom dress shows.

Information about other dress providers and prom transport will be available on the night.

The academy has put on similar nights in the past but Vicki Bumphrey, from the school, said this year's event would involve more of the community.
