Using our free venue finder, we can help you remove the stress from organizing an event, and find the best venue to suit your needs. Whether you are holding a business conference or a formal party, finding the ideal place to host a large event is vital.

Here are 5 top tips for finding the best venue for a large event:


In order to hold a large successful and enjoyable event, it is important that you choose a venue that is able to withstand a substantial amount of guests. No one likes to be cramped in a small room surrounded by lots of people, therefore it is crucial that you consider the space available with the venue. You should take into account the number of guests you wish to invite, as well as how much room would be needed for entertainment purposes. With all these things considered, you should be on your way to finding the perfect venue that fits your event like a glove.


The budget for your event is one of the most significant factors that you need to think about when searching for your ideal venue. How much you have to spend on a venue will determine the type of venue you can hire, as well as the entertainment (and catering if needed.) Having a small budget will limit your options for large venues, so it is important to cut your expenses where and if you are able to do so. Using our website you can find great affordable venues for large events, that won’t break the bank.


For any event, food and drinks are the condiments that make any night more enjoyable. They provide your guests with an extra boost of energy, allowing them to have more fun. With this in mind, the food and drinks that you serve at your event must be suitable for your guests. Whether your event includes a sit-down meal or even just a buffet, you will need to consider how much space this will take up in your venue. For those of you who are working with a budget, most venues offer in-house catering, allowing you to offer a selection of delicious foods and satisfying drinks to your guests.


Relative to the type of event that you are holding, you need to envisage how you wish the venue to look. This includes sectioning off any areas that may be used i.e. for food and drink. Prior to looking for a venue, you should already have an idea of what you would like your event to be like, as this will allow you to make better, more informed decisions on which venue you think is suitable for your event aims and objectives.


In order to ensure a decent turnout, particularly for a large event, it is paramount that the location of the venue is suitable and easily accessible for all of your guests. Whether you decide to host your event in London, Manchester or Wolverhampton, be sure to research into the parking arrangements (this is important for those who will be travelling via car), also local hotels for those travelling long distances. Depending on the type of event you are putting on, hotels may offer discounts to guests who are attending your event (make sure you look into this to give your guests the best deals.) In addition to this, as the event is likely to be fairly large, you will need to get informed on the fire safety regulations for the venue, as you will be responsible for your invited guests.
