So, how exactly does free venue hire work in Liverpool? The minimum spend concept is very popular in the city, as it doesn’t require you to pay a hire fee to use a venue. Instead, you commit to spending a certain amount of money on food and/or drinks in your desired space. This is why this concept is known as free venue hire, a very affordable alternative to other pricing models.
Prices in Liverpool vary from venue to venue, day to day and even time to time (busier time slots can have a more expensive rate). Prices may get higher or lower because of the location of a venue. Usually, venues closer to the Liverpool centre are more expensive than in the suburbs around Merseyside. Most of the minimum spend rates range between £150 and £6000, depending on the number of your guests and the overall price range of the venue. This means there's a lot of wiggle room when it comes to free venue hire and everyone can find an option that suits their budget.
There are two types of spaces that most frequently work with minimum spend rates. Those are party venues and private dining venues, most of which can be found around Ropewalks and Baltic Triangle. Since both of these event types come with some kind of consumption, it is easy for the venue managers to determine a minimum spend rate. This also makes it very convenient for you to pay for the event since your guests would spend a similar amount of money on food and drinks anyway. Picking a minimum spend venue is usually the most affordable choice if you’re using the venue’s in-house catering. Liverpool has plenty of options on offer and we know where to find the best ones!
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.
