'Tenting' a sports hall...

    Hi All,

    Are any schools using their sports halls for end of summer term festivities such as: prize giving, speech days or leavers balls?

    We currently hire a marquee for our speech day and leavers ball but are considering using our sports hall.

    It would be really useful to see some examples of sports halls that have been draped to give us an idea of how it could look.

    Any schools in the south of England that are doing this would be perfect.

    Many thanks in advance!

    My old school did this once for the main school hall (rather than the sports hall).
    I had to conduct interviews with parents of upcoming year 7 pupils in there.
    I can't remember much in terms of glamour. (Dark and claustrophobic)

    You need to think very carefully about health and safety (particularly fire risk) if you do something like this.
