On September 7th 2013, the Residents Club Committee organised its first annual ball as University Hall (formerly called Currie Hall)!! It was said to be the biggest ball held in Western Australia and it was the most remarkable night of our lives. The theme for the ball of course had to be….. 007, SKYBALL!!
Upon entering the venue all guests were greeted with a massive 007 archway, which set the mood straight away. Over 600 University Hall residents attended the ball, which was an awesome turn out for a residential college that houses over 750 students. But of course before the fun could begin there was an opening address from all of our important people at Unihall.
Unlike other balls, the 007 Skyball was not a traditional sit down dinner with set seating. Instead it was a buffet style dinner and you could sit anywhere you wanted in order to mingle. All of the food looked and tasted delicious! Being a major sweet tooth myself, I especially enjoyed the dessert selection, which consisted of macaroons, cupcakes, chocolate cake and more.
The Parmelia Hilton was a fantastic choice for the venue, after a while when you start to explore the place, you realise that there were in fact THREE dancefloors to choose from! This left University Hall residents spoiled for choice with a different DJ, atmosphere and music for each dancefloor!! But if dancefloors weren’t really your thing, there was also a photobooth and even even a casino area for the gambling enthusiast.
More snaps from the photobooth can be found at Perth Photobooth Hire – UWA College Ball from PerthPhotoboothHire on Vimeo.
Overall, the ball was ridiculously epic!! Everyone ate amazing food, drank and danced the night away. The Parmelia Hilton is such a stand out venue and the ResClub committee should be commemorated for organising such a fantastic ball. I’m sure everyone who went had a really great time!!
Those who missed it, be sure to attend next year’s ball!!
