Perth School Formal Venue Hire Guide

Many of you probably remember your school formal as it happened a few days ago. Perhaps that was when you confessed your feelings to your high school crush and now spouse? Or is it because you simply had the time of your life with your peers?

Whatever the reason, school balls are some of the most unforgettable moments in a student's life. Part of that wonderful memory is the place where you had your party. In fact, your school formal venue may have played a huge part as to why your ball was so special.

If you're on the planning committee, you want to make sure the guests get to enjoy their school formal. Whilst this is no easy task, you can do yourself and everyone a favour by deciding on the ideal school formal venue in Perth as soon as possible. With that out of the way, the committee can focus on other aspects to give the students the celebration they deserve.

Where will I find the best school formal venue in Perth?

There's no shortage of superb school formal venues in Perth. Each suburb or neighbourhood has plenty of event spaces or function venues where you can have your school ball or similar social events. Take a look at what some of these Perth suburbs have to offer:

Perth CBD

For students in Perth, choosing a venue in the CBD is a great idea. Not only is it easy to get around the city and suburbs, but there are also plenty of amenities within walking distance. The biggest opportunity and challenge with venues in Perth CBD is the sheer variety. There are high-end ballrooms that can accommodate a large number of guests, but there are also smaller event spaces that may only fit a few tables for those who want an intimate gathering.

If you want to enjoy the Perth City skyline, there are also rooftop bars that offer a great view of the cityscape. The best part is that most of these venues are just a few minutes away from each other, so you can easily compare and contrast your options.


Claremont is a great choice for school formal venues in Perth due to its beautiful view of the city and abundance of luxurious ballrooms and event spaces. Many of these spaces also boast a long history and heritage, giving students the chance to learn about this part of Perth. Proximity to Perth CBD is another plus point.


The biggest benefit of having your school formal in Fremantle is the privacy and exclusivity it offers. You can find venues that are isolated from the general public with only a few event spaces. While this may not be a top choice if you're looking for something impressive, its intimacy can actually make for an even more memorable night!


Despite the attractions of the city centre, students who live in suburbs far from the Perth CBD may want to have their school ball somewhere nearer.

If you live in one of the northern suburbs of Perth, for example, you may want to consider finding a school formal venue in Joondalup. School formal venues and other event spaces in Joondalup are more affordable but equally amazing. Plus, they'll get a good view of Lake Joondalup which should provide a nice romantic backdrop to this special night.


Nedlands is another suburb that's worth a look at if you're looking for versatile function spaces. You'll find a number of commercial establishments along Stirling Highway where you can find incredible school ball venues. The suburb of Dalkeith is also home to some of the best restaurants and function venues in the area.


Burswood is ideal for students who want to add a touch of luxury to their school formal night. With its incredible views of Perth CBD and the Swan River, Burswood is perfect for those who want to make a grand entrance. You can also find some of the best hotels in Perth here which makes it easy to get around on the big night. These hotels have different function rooms for your large events.


Leederville is a great choice for school formal venues in Perth due to its central location and abundance of event spaces. The suburb is also home to a number of bars and nightclubs, so you can continue the party well into the night.


For students who want the best of both worlds, head to Northbridge in Perth and look for a school ball venue there. This area is filled with a wide range of fun and budget-friendly venues perfect for your school formal. Many of them are also known for their amazing food and stunning interiors. Great atmosphere guaranteed!


If you want a night to remember, then look no further than Wanneroo. It's one of Perth's fastest-growing suburbs so there are more and more functions venues opening here. This means that students have a wide range to choose from when picking their school ball venue this year! For students living on the northern side of Wanneroo, you're in luck. You can find a number of great venues that are not too far from your school and all within the city limits.

What should I consider when looking for a school formal venue in Perth?

If you're in charge of organising the Perth school formal, you need to make a list of the things you require out of the school ball venue. This list will make the search a lot easier and help you every step of the way.

These are some of the most important things to consider as you look for a school formal venue in Perth:

Number of attendees

The organising committee should first decide how many attendees the school formal is expecting. This will be the most important factor to consider when choosing a venue. You don't want to book a venue that's too large and waste money on unused space. However, you don't want to end up with a venue that's too small and uncomfortable either.

Venue type

The type of venue you choose will also have an impact on the overall school formal experience. If you're looking for a more traditional ballroom setting, then you'll need to find a hotel or function centre that offers this. However, if you want something different, there are plenty of other unique venues around Perth that would be perfect for your school formals or even your next cocktail parties.


The location of the school formal venue is also important to consider. You need to make sure that it's easily accessible for all attendees and that there are no problems with parking. If you're looking for a venue outside of the Perth CBD, then you'll need to find one that's close to public transport.

Seating arrangements for dinner and dancing

Your function space should have adequate seating so that attendees don't have to stand around whilst meals are being served or while they're waiting for the dancing to begin. When looking for Perth functions venues, consider the possible room configurations, and the equipment available and see if you'll need to bring in additional tables and chairs.

Food and beverage options

Perth event venues usually offer various catering options. Hotels and restaurants, for example, have their own menu that you can choose when you book a function room or event space from them. They usually have deals that include food and beverage, amongst other things.

Study each package that's offered with the venue thoroughly and determine if this is the way to go. This is actually a good option if you want one less thing to deal with when planning your special events. Otherwise, you can hire the venue and catering service separately.


Find out about the amenities and facilities that you can expect from your Perth school formal venue. An ideal place would have a dance floor and offer special lighting for dancing and dimming lights during dinner. You wouldn't want to experience having not enough light whilst taking pictures of your memorable night or feel uncomfortable when it's time to dance. Do you need state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment for your special event? How about mood lighting or black wall drapes?

Asking these questions when looking for a school formal venue in Perth will make your job a whole lot easier. The right venue could very well be everything that you need to successfully organise the school ball.

Venue cost

The venue cost is usually dependent on the size of the school formal venue and the type of package you choose. An upscale hotel or restaurant might be a little more expensive per person than your usual function space. However, the amenities provided by a hotel, which won't be available at other venues, may outweigh the extra cost.
