A prom requires a lot of preparation, and we are not just talking about the dress, the limo or the need to find a date. Finding a venue, settling on a price and planning for decoration, entertainment and catering are all crucial to the prom’s eventual success. You will likely be given some sort of input from a student organising committee with regards to theme, duration or location. So be sure to take this into account.
A prom is the kind of event that will benefit from assistance from seasoned event staff who can help you sort out any organisational pitfalls. Just remember whether you hire a hall, a ballroom, a banquet hall or a hotel function room, all that matters in the end is that the kids are happy and secure.
Get you search started early and prepare a list of questions ahead of time that will allow you to compare venue offers. Event packages that cover all the bases might be a great solution and save you money in the end. Dry hire might be too expensive when you add all the pieces together. Per person hire fees might be an easy way to manage your book keeping and pass the expenses on to the attendees when you sell tickets. Per person fees in the city for venue hire can start around £22.
According to our data, you should expect to pay anywhere from £60 to £250+ per hour for booking the prom venue in Birmingham. In venues that offer in-house catering, it’s common to hire on a per-person basis that starts at £22 and can go up to £60+ per person. Some of the venues may charge on the basis of a minimum spend instead, and these prices can range between £850 to £4000+. As for dry hire, prices range anywhere from £650 to £2000. However, these are only general prices so it’s best to ask the venue manager for an individual offer based on your requirements. Also, keep in mind that you must pay extra for some additional amenities like decorations, AV equipment, etc. (All data from Tagvenue.)
Your starting point when searching for the prom venue should be the City Centre. The area offers an array of versatile spaces - elegant hotel venues, hip restaurants and stylish banquet halls that are potentially perfect backdrops for this important occasion. Another popular spot for school proms is definitely Digbeth - particularly nearby Bedford Road and Digbeth Branch Canal, you’ll find incredibly elegant and stylish venues that your schoolmates will definitely love. If you’ve been thinking of something quirky, you can always consider hiring a library, or a museum. You’ll find the majority of them in the Jewellery Quarter. Or how about dancing the night away in a club venue? The ones that you should definitely check out are in Gay Village and in Gas Street Basin along Broad Street.
If you want to choose from among the city’s best and most fantastic venues, you should book your first-choice option around one year in advance. Otherwise, you might have fewer options to choose from that may not be as exciting for you and your schoolmates. Remember, you’re not the only school that is hosting its prom night, so you should act fast to party at the best venue in town!

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.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
