YOUNGSTERS across Southampton and Hampshire have been getting dressed up in their special suits, tuxedos and gowns and stepping out at glamorous proms at venues throughout the county.

They have been arriving in vehicles including sports cars, VW camper vans, giant tractors and vintage cars, and some lucky prom-goers even turned up on a special horse and carriage.

The Daily Echo has been out and about at glamorous locations such as St Mary’s Stadium, Chilworth Manor, Steeple Court Manor, the Ageas Bowl, and Botley Park Hotel.

The first of two special 24-page supplements will be publish in the Echo on Wednesday, July 10, and the second supplement will be published on Wednesday, July 17.
