Uphill Primary School’s Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) put on the sell-out event which saw clubbers dressed as the Spice Girls, Britney Spears and the Mario Brothers.

DJ Jonsey of SMSounds warmed up the crowds with a set from the hood of a Cadillac before The Number Nine took to the stage.

More than 800 guests enjoyed a decade of dance at the Back To 90s Disco event which raised £6,200 for the school.

The school needs to raise £10,000 to install a running track.

PTFA chair, Vicki Lloyd, said: “We’ve been blown away by the local support for the event. Installing an all weather running track will be an incredible opportunity for all the children who attend Uphill Primary School, for years to come.”
