With RBS I deal with the team who specifically target recruitment agencies as clients. Depending on who your audience is you’d want to contact that division. There is an overall events management dept but they aren’t allowed to talk to the “public”. Who is your audience?
Good Morning Louise
Thank you for coming back to me.
My audience are school leavers more specifically graduates. We run events to help bring industry professionals with graduates aspiring to be in their field. For example we hosted an event for Females in Law where we had 3 Guest Speakers discussing different areas of law that they specialised in, giving the audience an opportunity to ask questions about routes, different exams required, how to become accredited and so forth. Each event is centred around different industries.
We also bring in financial advisors to discuss tips and ways on how to manage finances when you start working and setting finiancial goals.
We have had great feedback from all our attendees from past events but have had a delay in hosting events due to finding a suitable venue.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Hi all! I am new here and was wondering if anyone could help me. I have been in the TV industry for years, I have modelled, i have danced, I have done hosting and presenting and more. Me and my business partner are going to start a beauty peagent in london, we want a venue where we would potentially have a T shaped stage for a catwalk or a big hall to turn into a catwalk, we prefer it to be fre, however we can see what low prices are on offer. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank u!
I would suggest trying to partner with a relevant venue, such as a stage school or perhaps a nightclub where you could have the pageant earlier in the evening and then punters come in later? You can probably strike a deal if drinks are to be purchased.
I have started a women in business networking group so I am looking for some free venues just to get the group started and host some free networking events - any leads on where I can find free venues in London? Probably not a pub or one with a minimum spend - maybe somewhere that I would be happy to share the network delegates with or whp would want to present their services to the group?
Hi there, I have a space which we would be happy to rent out for free for any community events, non profit or charities. Chapel with 100 seated, conference room and seminar room available. firstname.lastname@example.org or 02072462700
I am currently hosting an event during London Tech Week and I am looking for a venue like RBS or Barclays to host. I have a great guest list and it would be great marketing as well for the venue host. Can you please point me to the person to talk to at these companies? Thanks
I Mike Ireland at an event yesterday. He wants to start a networking group near Heathrow. Does anyone know of free (or low cost) venues in that area please?
We’ve hosted a few meetups in bars - not technically free as we will have to ensure we meet the bar tab, but was about as close as we’ve come.
I think we only ended out of pocket once.
Hi all, I have had a look at the suggested venue but they are either not suitable or not really free.
we are looking for a free access small and large venues for charity open day, regular meeting or occasional workshops and large events for July and this summer. Venue really need to be cost free and in South London and North Kent for different activities. Thank you.
@MHN what type of charity do you represent? Altitude London has a grant scheme to provide free venue space for charities representing certain causes:
Here’s a central London venue that is free to use for Christian charities https://www.stewardship.org.uk/about-us/hire-our-space
Hi all, I’m looking to host a case competition and need a venue/ office space. would there be any updates to the list Nick has posted? I have tried them all but some are full and others require rental now. The event I am hosting is free and hence am looking for a venue willing to host for free. Thanks!
Hi Jasmine, is there a community or charitable element to your event? Tell us a bit more about it.
The Chapel Bar claims to have “a number of free venue hire offers”. Might be worth a look? http://www.thechapelbar.co.uk/private-bar-hire-london/free-venue-hire-london/
Also Anam Bar says its spaces can be used for free, with no minimum spend - only a deposit is required: https://www.functionfixers.co.uk/blog/fantastic-party-venue-in-london-with-no-hire-fee-and-free-gifts/
