We've pulled photos from the Naughties and onwards, with a few older pictures in between, of Tamworth women as they’re welcomed into society.
Debutante Balls are a long standing tradition in Tamworth. Women in year 12 of high school are presented to society normally with a partner of their choosing.
In this gallery there are photos from 2009, 2007, 2011 along with a few more blasts from the past.
