KickstART Prom

Bring your bio-degradable glitter, your favourite people and your dancing shoes. We hope this can be the cliché prom you secretly wanted in school, yet probably didn’t get to experience. Fancy frocks and outfits are encouraged, but definitely not required. No prom kings and queens will be appointed but you can still wear crowns if you want. If you believe that you are royalty, we agree wholeheartedly.
