FAQs about Performance Venues in London

What should I keep in mind when hiring a performance venue in London?

Things that you should consider when hiring a performance venue in London are:

  • Your budget –  venues will price their space according to time you will need it for or how many people will be present. Be sure to select a space that will work best with your budget.
  • Its capacity and size – You never want to find yourself wishing you had more space or worrying that there won't be enough people to fill the room. Always double check the room capacity in the venue listing.
  • Acoustics – If you are performing as a band or as a solo musician, you want to sound your best. Try and find videos of people playing in the venue or check it out for yourself before you book. 
  • Equipment – Every venue should have professional sound equipment as standard. People who know how to mix live music are also a must in order to ensure the best possible experience for the performers and the audience.
  • Location – Try and find a space that is more centrally located so your guests will have no problem finding suitable public transportation to get to your show.

Where are some of the best performance venues in London?

London is known for having some of the best theatres and performance  venues in the world. Soho has plenty of amazing options for more high profile events that require an elegant venue with larger capacities. If you need something a little more lowkey, then look in areas such as Finsbury and Arden Estate for some smaller venues.

How do I keep costs down in a performance venue?

Keeping costs down is as simple as finding smaller venues and booking them. Be aware that many venues will charge on a per hour basis, as opposed to a per person basis, which is good for keeping costs low if you are expecting a lot of people. You also don’t have to worry about keeping everyone fed, as most performance venues have snack stands or bars operated by the venue where the guests pay for themselves.

Babs K.
Booked Church at Crypt on the Green
We actually hired the Crypt under the Church and not the Church itself! Though both are excellent venue choices. The crypt space itself is beautiful - very unique with the arched ceiling. We loved the atmosphere it provided. Also gave off great acoustics! The green room is spacious and welcoming, kitchen access was great as could chill the drinks. All staff that I encountered were lovely, very very helpful and nice to partner with. The onsite team on the day were great - the stage was set up just as we wanted - huge thanks to Martin! The fact that it was a dry hire meant that it was great value for money in a very central part of town. Only issue was Majestic Drury Lane delivered the drinks very late - nothing to do with the Crypt but a warning to future customers - dont use them! I highly recommend this venue! We will be back!

Overall very pleased with venue the price was reasonable and I will definitely be using Dereks venue again. Thanks you!

Booked Pub Room at The Cavendish Arms
Shirley was wonderful - helpful, responsive and reliable. The venue is fantastic; a real gem. Staff are friendly and welcoming, although there is little in the way of personal service for a private event. The prices are astonishingly reasonable for such a central pub, especially considering that the quality of the cocktails was actually very high. I love this pub and would recommend it to anyone for a low-key but memorable and fun event.

Booked Pub Room at The Cavendish Arms
Had a wonderful time at the Cavendish Arms for my birthday! Was refreshing to not have a minimum spend, only a small holding fee which you can redeem against drinks on the night. Venue is delightfully different with quirky decor, well located, and staff are super friendly and chilled. Everyone had the best evening! Shirley was great to deal with, speedy responses and answered all of my questions.

Booked Terrace Room at JCT London
Terry was very helpful to the team who were using the space and was very responsive to any queries we had. The room was great for meetings and was very spacious which was good to keep everyone socially distanced. Would definitely hire again!
