For students in secondary school, the annual school formal is one of the most important events of their lives. It’s a chance to socialise, dine on exquisite food and create memories that last a lifetime. If you are in charge of planning the event and are at a loss for venue ideas, here are some important elements to consider.


The location of your school formal venue in Sydney needs to be in an easily accessible place with ample parking space. You also want to choose a venue with “wow” factor that will leave your guests in awe. Locations with stunning views or function centres in Western Sydney with sprawling landscapes are an excellent choice.


Because this is a school event, the safety and security of both students and staff are extremely important. Make sure you choose a venue that follows the best safety practices and security principles. Springfield House, for instance, is dedicated to providing a wonderful event venue with high-quality security. We have years of experience hosting major events like weddings and school formals and ensure that all aspects of the event are secure.


Springfield House have their own team of Award winning Chefs, who can cater to different tastes by providing exceptional food that ranges from light and healthy options to more substantial selections. Students will naturally gravitate towards food that they are familiar with, and you can use that as a guide when deciding on your menu. Simply discuss your preferred selection with us and we’ll handle the rest.


Knowing the overall theme of the event can help narrow down your options when it comes to venues. While decorations and lighting can greatly transform interiors, your chosen venue should still help set the tone of the event. More contemporary themes like Black and White work best in a sleek and sophisticated venue like an event centre.

Springfield House is one of Sydney’s most popular school formal venues. We understand the needs of high school formals, and we are here to turn your ideas into a reality. Get in touch with our team today to discuss our various packages.
