Tips on choosing the perfect function venue for your event:

  • Start by writing down the guest list. This will help you a lot with further planning and estimating the final budget. Establishing the guest list early in advance makes it easier to hire the right-sized function room. We’re listing a wide variety of spaces, from small function rooms to large halls, so we’re sure to help you find something that’s just the right size! 
  • Consider the accessibility of the function spaces. If some of your guests are going to need disabled access, make sure the venue fits their needs. Apart from that, don’t forget to check the function room’s transport links and see if there’s enough parking space nearby.
  • Book your space as soon as you can. The most sought-after function rooms in Manchester book out months in advance! So, the earlier you start searching, the more choices you will have. It really pays off to secure the best function venue for your event ahead of time - you can even catch an early-bird deal! 
  • Note down all the facilities you may need and check which ones are included in the venue hire fee. Many function rooms in Manchester come with the furniture or A/V equipment included. Some venues offer delicious on-site catering, too!
  • Learn more about the venue’s policies. If you’re looking for a function room for parties, ask the manager if they accept loud music events. It’s always better to check the room’s alcohol licenses, too. Want to dance until sunrise? Find out if you should apply for a Temporary Event Notice.

Not sure which district of Manchester is most suitable for your event? The most sought-after areas include:

  • Castlefield. Once a significant industrial area, currently one of the most picturesque and quiet spots in the city. Castlefield offers many restaurants with function rooms – with our guidance, finding the perfect one for a party space or a wedding reception is fast and easy.
  • North Manchester. From vibrant Prestwich (Manchester’s up-and-coming hip neighbourhood) to tranquil green areas like Blackley or Moston, North Manchester is a popular target for cheap function room hire – the prices there tend to be lower than in the city centre.
  • South Manchester. Are you after multi-cultural Levenshulme (famous for its boundary-breaking eateries), cheerful Didsbury or artsy Chorlton? If you’re looking for top-rated event venues for hire a bit further away from the city centre, choosing function spaces in south Manchester might be the right choice.
  • Manchester airport area. Manchester boasts the third busiest airport in the UK, so it’s no surprise it became an essential hub for business conference centre. This area is full of hotel function rooms, so if you’re planning an event for guests coming from abroad, it’s a perfect choice – first, they can head to the gathering straight after their arrival and second, the accommodation facilities are located in the same building.
  • Manchester city centre. From all the posh venues of Spinningfields to quirky spots in Gay Village, Chinatown and Northern Quarter, the city centre is able to cater for all tastes. We know the best central ballrooms in Manchester and we’re more than happy to help you out.
