Wow, what a night!
Last night was the inaugral PR Prom, which took place at Shoreditch Town Hall with an “Under the Sea” theme - check out the photo above to get an idea of how we pulled it off.
The Brite Fizz cocktails went down a treat, thanks to Katie McPhee at Eventbrite.
Well done to Kat Shenton and Robin Davies, who were crowned PR Prom King and Queen, each winning a bottle of champagne thanks to Realwire.
The mermaid in the photo corner was well used - perhaps a bit too much by the men.
And everyone’s favourite friends, the octopus ballon animals - one of which ended up somewhere unusual.
We’ve been getting some great feedback on Twitter on how you found the event:

As always, with a first time event run 100% by volunteers, there are ways we can improve and we’d love to do the event again next year.
