Performance Venues in London FAQ

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.

Emily Crowson
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!
