A Halifax school is celebrating 150 years of education being delivered in a building that was once home to an orphanage.
Crossley Heath School will celebrate their mile stone with the sold out summer ball, to be held at Dean Clough, the Halifax arts and business centre on June 28.
The event will hold a three course meal, a drinks reception and dancing, as well as a photo booth, a raffle and an auction that will give people the chance to win a mountain bike and a diamond pendant.
BBC Radio 4 presenter Mairead Devlin will be in attendance at the event.
All the money raised from the summer ball will go towards a new library management system that is set to benefit all students.
Melanie Hall, organiser of the summer ball, said: “We are really excited about holding our first ball. There is a real buzz about it.”
The school is seeking business sponsors to support a part of the ball, give raffle or auction prizes or advertise.
The building was built in 1864, as an orphanage but was transformed into a school.
