The PR Prom is a fundraising event in support of Bright One (, the volunteer-run communications agency for the third sector that provides PR assistance to charities across the country.

The event itself will be held at Shoreditch Town Hall, which provides a beautiful backdrop for an evening of entertainment. For a ticket of just £50, guests will enjoy food, drinks, the opportunity to take classic prom-style photos, live performances, dancing, a silent auction and other surprises.

Music includes a special performance by She Makes War and The Olympians, with songs from the forthcoming album Little Battles alongside creatively twisted classics, as well as a DJ set from Hypernaked’s Matt Brawn

In the run-up to the event, you’ll be able to vote for your Prom King and Queen by tweeting a nomination in this style; ‘I nominate (name) for #prpromking at the @prprom’ or ‘I nominate (name) for #prpromqueen at the @prprom’.

Plus, we’ll be giving out a third award in the style of ‘Most Likely to…’, for which you can design your own category and rally support from colleagues. Simple tweet, ‘I nominate (name) for Most Likely to xxx #prprom’

Stephen Waddington, MD of Speed, has lent his support to the event, “Bright One makes a huge difference to the reputation of charities through the work of its volunteers. PR Prom is a chance for everyone in the PR industry to contribute to Bright One’s work -and have a great night out. Have you booked your ticket yet?”

Ben Matthews, founder of Bright One, said, “The PR Prom promises to be a fantastic event and will provide some much needed support to the valuable work that Bright One does. We want to see the industry come out to support their own and have fun while doing good.”

Amanda Rose, founder of Twestival and advisor to Bright One, added, “For our inaugural Bright One fundraising event we wanted to put together something special and quirky that everyone in the UK PR industry would look forward to each year. Many of the events out there are limited to those PR companies winning awards or at a price that only a few staff can attend - we hope to see lots of new faces out for PR Prom."

The campaign to promote the event features well-known faces from the PR and communications industry, who Bright One thanks for their support; Kerry Bridge (Dell), Jon Silk (Waggener Edstrom), Kate Matlock (Ketchum Pleon), Reda Haq (Cohn and Wolfe), Jordan Stone (We Are Social) and Nik Thakkar (Exposure).
