The venue is your canvas. It's where your flair, skill and imagination will produce something amazing. It's where your vision, the dream event that you've envisaged, can materialise into an unforgettable experience. It determines what kind of event you can create, who will come, and what people will think.

So you've got to get it right. Here's how.
 

1. Know what you're looking for

It goes without saying you need a few minimum pieces of information:

  • Location
  • Capacity
  • Budget

But you also should have a sense, an inkling - an idea of the feel of the venue you're after. Do you want somewhere modern and delicate like Carousel?
   

Or do you want somewhere more regal, opulent and traditional, like Two Temple?
 

 

2. Discover all the options

Now you've decided upon exactly what you're looking for, it's time to assess all the options. The easiest and quickest way of doing this is searching through hirespace.com.

A few taps and clicks and you'll get to search through the best venues that the UK has to offer, all filtered to fit your exact requirements.
 

3. Ask an expert

What you'll then need is some advice from an expert - a person that knows London's venues inside-out, upside-down, any which way, with their eyes closed. That's these guys:
 

 

They know all the managers personally, they know when you're getting a bad deal, and they'll know when a venue might not work because something you hadn't thought of. They're the best, and all their advice is free.
 

4. Make a site visit

At this point you'll have to leave your computer and get to a few of the venues on your shortlist. Photos will offer you a vivid picture of the venue, but to really understand the space and visualise your event, you've got to get up close and personal.
 

5. See the potential

When you discover somewhere like White Space, what do you see? You could see a white box, or you could see a blank canvas waiting to be painted.

When you visit your venues, you've got to see the potential, and picture your amazing event.
 

 

This white box can become all sorts of different places:
