Preparing to reopen your Venue
Village Halls, Community Halls and other Venues are expected to be able to reopen from the 6th July
Wedding Receptions for upto 30 people from 15th August
Business Conferences and Business Events from 1st October
It is currently expected that the next round of relaxation of the Coronavirus rules will allow Venues like Village Halls, Community Halls and similar to reopen subject to strict social distancing rules from the 6th July 2020.
If Venues wish to reopen it is important that they plan and prepare.
ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) has published an extensive guidance sheet aimed at advising and informing the management committees of the actions they should consider taking - this document can be accessed using the link below.

Government guidance issued on 17th July
This has been a very difficult and strange few months and any steps towards reopening must be taken with great care, not rushed and with proper consideration of the need to protect the Venues users and staff and prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
List your Venue on Venues4Hire.org
Venues4hire opened it doors in the second half of 2014 and since then we have steadily grown to be the largest UK listing site for Venues and Spaces that can be hired to hold some form of event, activity, wedding, business meeting or any other form of private function. We now have over 30,000 Venues listed with many new Venues added each week. We are aiming to become the "Rightmove" of the Venues market place - listing all of the available Venues for hire within your search area from the grandest castle to the humblest community hall.
During the past 4 years we have gradually worked our way up the Google search results and now for almost any form of organic venue search - such as "Venues for hire near me" or "Halls for hire in Stone" we almost always appear on page one and often we are position one on that page.
We firmly believe that adding a Venue to our site is a good investment, each month we display Venue details to Visitors over 250,000 times and Google includes our site in its search results over 1 million times a month. Google is very good at finding your Venue if the person searching knows a bit about it, but very bad at showing it if the search is a bit vague or generic "Halls for hire near Tadcaster" for instant, In Cheshire we have over 650 Venues listed, Google will show you details of about 50 if you wade thru 20 pages of search results - so over 600 perfectly good Venue are excluded from the results. We are just like Rightmove - we will show the Visitor all of the Venues we know about within their search area.
On average we get over 100,000 visitors each month viewing Venue details over 250,000 times and we send over 1500 booking enquiries to our listed Venues each month.

Our upgrades allow you to increase the visibility of your Venue within our website and to promote your Venues special offers and events. You also get the chance to place a number of adverts (maybe on behalf of any preferred suppliers you have and keep any income you can raise) thereby offsetting the cost of the upgrade and maybe even making a profit.
