Schools Formals

Old Parliament House has long been the go-to venue for school formals and graduation ceremonies in Canberra. Start your special evening with arrivals on the front driveway and a group photo with all your friends and teachers on the iconic front steps of the building. Pre-dinner drinks and canapes will be served in the grand King’s Hall, followed by a sit down dinner in the Members’ Dining Room. Dance the night away until it is time for an elegant departure on the rear driveway.

From our past guests

  • "The staff on the night couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful! From arriving to set up, the service through the event and getting everyone to exit the event after it finished."
