Introduce yourself to the EventTribe community!


(Alistair McMillan) #937

Hello everyone!

I have taken over the sales & events at Hedingham Castle in Essex. The venue is predominantly a wedding venue but we also hold a variety of events throughout the year such as medieval recreations, jousting, vintage days and classic car days

I am looking to expand the event offering and looking for new and interesting stalls, entertainment etc that would suit the venue.

Please visit the website at if you would like more info on the venue!

Hi Nicola, great to have you on board! We have a lot of members in the charity sector - maybe start a thread to start crowdsourcing some event ideas?

Hi Alistair, what a beautiful venue! Are you doing any Christmas parties?

(Alistair McMillan) #940


I was planning on Xmas Parties but havent managed to get them off the ground this year. I’ve not been here long. I’m going to have another run at it for next year.

It certainly looks like the perfect spot for a festive gathering!

Hi my name is Mufaro Mapanda and I am the CEO/Founder of Hope for African Communities UK. We are a newly registered non governmental organisation registered in the UK and Zimbabwe. We work with widows. orphans and the disabled ,with the aim of turning round the lives of these vulnerable individuals. We are currently operating in Zimbabwe but we hope to move to other African countries.
We are determined to achieve this by empowering them through sustainable projects. We are not going to give them fish but teach them to fish.

As we are in the process of setting up our organisation every little helps so if you have anything that can help us grow.

Thanks and God bless

Welcome Mufaro, sounds like a great initiative. What sort of events will you be organising?

As we are newly registered and we have no money,it will be our first event and we will want to do our best hence looking for a free venue.

(Aimee Bennett) #946

Hi everyone,
I’ve been working in events in the events world for over 10 years now. I started my events career with an AV company and then got a position working for Visit York, planning some of their city festivals and was subsequently moved onto their York Convention Bureau team. I recently moved to Switzerland with my husband and was successful in starting a career with HelmsBriscoe (a global venue finding company). I’m currently trying to build my client base. Would love to speak to other freelance venue finding agents about how they built a loyal client base. I also have lots of experience in event/conference planning, marketing and UK event venues so looking forward to sharing my knowledge.

Will the guests be buying their own drinks? You can hire lovely spaces like this for a minimum spend of just £50

(Belinda Booker) #948

(Chantal Miller) #952

Hello everyone,
It’s great to be here! I am Chantal, the founder of a not for profit London based initiative called Island Girls Rock. We are all about supporting and building community through experiential events, workshops and mentoring.
Presently looking for a free workspace to hold our 2019 planning meeting and really struggling to find anywhere. We are happy to buy food and drink but can’t afford venue hire as we are small (5 of us) and a start up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks so much!

(Belinda Booker) #953

Hi Chantal, great to have you with us. Here are some venues with private spaces that can be hired for a minimum spend of £40-50 - just £10 a head if there are 5 of you.

(Chantal Miller) #954

Thanks so much Belinda. Will check them all out!
