Hiring a private party venue in Manchester – essential tips:
Start planning as early as possible – The best private party venues book out months in advance. The sooner you start the search, the more choice you have. What’s more, if you start planning your private party early, you’ll have more time to sort everything out (and the whole process will be less hectic, too).
Write down your guest list – This is particularly important for bigger events, weddings, for example. Preparing the list in advance will help you with choosing the right sized private party venue and estimating the budget for your event.
Consider the location – Spinningfields, full of luxury private party venues, is the perfect location for an elegant feast, while Northern Quarter usually hosts more alternative events. Manchester is big and diverse, but with our insider knowledge picking the right area is headache-free. Last but not least, don’t forget to check the venue’s transport links and make sure there’s enough parking space nearby.
On a tight budget? Don’t stress. Here are the best tips for hiring a cheap private party venue in Manchester:
Aim for self-catering venues – Manchester is full of private party venues that allow external catering. This solution helps you save a significant amount of money. What’s more, if any of your guests have special catering needs (for example halal, kosher, vegan or gluten-free) it might be easier to meet their needs by choosing self-catering.
Hire a community hall – Community centres are usually much cheaper than other spaces in Manchester. That makes them an excellent private party venue option if you’re on a budget. Most community halls in Manchester work on dry hire basis, which means you only pay for hiring the space, while organising other aspects of the event is entirely up to you.
Choose a smaller venue – If you’re organising a private party for 50 people, there’s no need to hire a space that’s able to accommodate twice as many. We’re listing a large variety of beautiful small party venues in Manchester – check them out and enquire directly with the ones you like the most.

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.
