So, you need to plan and organise your first workshop. Thanks to a large variety of interesting workshop venues, London is a great place to start. If you’re looking for a venue to make your next class, meeting or conference a success, an art or business workshop venue will be a great option for you. From blank canvas spaces to large meeting halls, you will find your next workshop space stress-free and with no extra fees. In order to make the process even easier, we’ve created this complete guide on how to organise a workshop, and how to pick and hire a workshop venue that will match all your needs.
Are you stuck trying to compare all these different venue options? In order to get through the hiring process as quickly and efficiently as possible, you will have to develop a plan for your workshop. If you have a concise agenda and goal, you will be able to look for the space most suitable for your event. Here’s all you need to know when it comes to comparing workshop offers:
If your budget is tight, make sure to pick a couple of different venues that match your needs and run your calculations - which option will be more affordable for the time and headcount of your meeting? Is it better for you to hire the venue by hour, or opt for a 4-hour or 8-hour session instead?
Is this your first time organising a business, art, or creative workshop and you don’t know where to begin? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Tagvenue really wants to help you make your next event productive and meaningful. But before you can get into your venue and carry out your workshop you will have to take some steps to prepare your workshop event and set yourself up for success.
First things first, you will have to think of the overarching goal you want to achieve with your workshop. For a business scenario, it could be something like finding a solution to a problem, creating a strategy, or team bonding. If you’re after an art or creative workshop, this can be anything from teaching a concept to a group of people, making an eye-opening presentation, or making an interesting piece of art or music. Naming the main purpose of a meeting or workshop will make all the other steps easier, as you will have a specific guideline of what you’re going for.
When you’ve found the main purpose of your meeting, then you will have to make a more detailed agenda. There are many different ways to plan your workshop, but it will all usually come down to these four parts:
When you finish the planning phase of your next workshop, then it’s time to gather all the resources you need. If you’re going to need some art and office supplies, you should list them and get them as soon as possible. Usual gear for a business workshop would include whiteboards, computers, or virtual meeting equipment, particularly cameras and conference mics. Many of the venues set up for meetings and conferences will already have such gear, so feel free to ask the venue manager what can be arranged for you. When it comes to an art or creative workshop, this will largely depend on the type of project you want to tackle, so feel free to get inspired and see what you can come up with.
Then, take a headcount of all the attendees. If you’re hosting a closed workshop, you probably already have an idea on who you should invite. But it’s still good to make a list of all of them in order to track the amount of people who will be coming. That way it will be easier for you to pick an appropriate venue. However, if you have no idea how many people will attend the workshop, find a way for them to RSVP - for example, you can do it by asking the participants to send you an email or social media message.
Then, after you have all the right information, you can search for your venue. If you have a general vision of what you want this workshop to look like, this part will be quick and simple. Hop on our platform and filter out the amount of seats, area, and facilities you’re going to need for your workshop and contact the venue managers of spaces that interest you the most. They will help you by answering all your questions, explain the terms and conditions of the venue, and arrange a meeting for you to see the venue in advance if that’s what you want.
Workshop venues are available all across London. If you’re looking for space for a business workshop, you can use some of the meeting spaces in Soho. This trendy district of Central London has a surprising amount of nice professional board rooms with everything you need for a successful meeting. If you’re looking for more open and inspiring spaces, there are multiple venues around Shoreditch Church that would fit that description. And considering they are easily accessible from the A10, on top of having great reviews from Tagvenue customers, you won’t be disappointed.
Workshops can vary from spaces suitable for classes or activities such as yoga all the way to more professional spaces that might be more suitable for a training or meeting. Expect these spaces to be able to offer basic items such as AV equipment, tables, chairs, or whiteboards. Depending on the nature of the workshop venue, managers may have different types of art, photo or sound equipment available, so make sure to read through the venue pages and ask the managers for more info.
Workshop spaces in London can be found starting around £20 per hour or £300 per session. When searching for a price that suits your budget, make sure to check whether different days of the week or times have lower hire fees. (All data from Tagvenue.)
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
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!
