Planning an event but want to keep your costs low? Alternative options to consider include self-catering venues that allow for non-traditional catering (like food trucks), sponsored catering or DIY catering. It's worth remembering that town halls, libraries or other local community organisations are often much cheaper than a banquet hall, hotel or conference centre, and are ideal for self-catered events. Here at #tagvenue, we showcase a variety of alternative hire spaces, so it's easy to find a self-catering venue for your next celebration.

Self Catering ideas

Self-catering venue hire tips:

  • see if the venue has a special space for preparing food – like a kitchen or a kitchenette. Such facilities allow you to prepare tasty, fresh nibbles and serve them right away.

  • plan the menu carefully – keep in mind that some of your guests may have special dietary requirements (gluten free, halal, vegetarian). Because of that, having a variety of entrees, main dishes and snacks is the key to a successful self-catered party.

  • use seasonal produce – think Eton mess with summer berries in June and spicy pumpkin soup in autumn. It’s not only cheaper, but much more delicious!

  • manage your time wisely – if you’re thinking about a self-catered wedding, remember that it can be really time consuming. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your menu. You can use food trucks as well as DIY food stations and dessert bars. After all, there are many different self-catering options for your big day.


The most popular self-catering venues in London include community centres, halls and warehouses. You can also take a look at our dry hire venues, many of which are happy for you to organise your own catering. No matter if you’re searching for a self-catering party venue or events space in east London, Brixton or Battersea, #tagvenue is here to lend a helping hand.

Fantastic little venue, very intimate, just what we wanted for our office Christmas party. Emma the venue manager was very accommodating to all our needs and answered any of my concerns quickly. Would thoroughly recommend.

Great space, good location, it was perfect for a dinner party for ~30 people that I couldn't host in my house because I live in a small flat. It looks very home-like. Price is really good for what it offers.

I could not have had a more perfect venue for my 25th! Honestly had no idea there were even private rooms for the Ice Bar. The decor/style in there fit just right for my theme and the bar staff added just the right touch! Really happy I found the venue and they even gave me a gift for my birthday!!

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.
