Hire Space in London - Top tips
Friday 13 October 2017
Here at Venue Search London, we are often asked to find raw and unfinished space to hire and we have a secret list of the very best blank canvas and temporary event spaces that are often only available for a limited period whilst vacant. It's great to be one of the first (or very few) people who hire these event spaces, but there a risks involved (and to be avoided!).
With these venues, accurate budgeting is essential since the venue hire is just the start of it! You must check the costs of catering and production which are often much higher than in established venues, since additional equipment and power will need to be brought in.
When looking at venue hire, space is often needed for kitchens, production and additional set, so you need to check the capacities and floor plans carefully.
The legal stuff can be a bit onerous too and you should check that the venue has a suitable premises licence for the proposed entertainment and catering offered and that they have all the Health and Safety certifications required.
If you are a bit concerned about pulling together all of the various designs and suppliers then you should consider using an experienced event agency who will bring your event dreams to a beautiful reality and give you sleep-ful nights before your next London conference, party or product launch. Our partners at Story Events are highly recommended and we have worked closely with them on several high impact events in warehouses, studios and many other funky blank canvas venues.
So, when looking to hire space in London that is raw, be brave, but be prepared. You could start by filling in the above quick venue search enquiry form and we will suggest the best shortlist of cool and quirky London venues.
