This type of hire fee allows you to avoid paying any money up front, but you are required to spend a given amount over the course of your party. This is especially advantageous if you are planning a larger party where you want to keep your per person spending low.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
