Birmingham has an incredible variety of venues to hire for a full range of events you may want to plan. In all honesty, the sheer volume of venues can often feel overwhelming and the last thing we want is the hiring process to be a drag – planning a party should be easy and enjoyable. At HeadBox we are committed to helping you choose not just the best Birmingham venue, but the best Birmingham venue for you. So put the kettle on, breathe a sigh of relief and let us guide you through planning an event like an expert.
Let’s start with the simple stuff. Searching for ‘Birmingham Event’ is a good start but you’ll give yourself a head start if you can establish what kind of event or venue you are looking for. Maybe an important boardroom meeting isn’t best suited to the local pub. Similarly, your best friend’s birthday party might need that extra-special venue to make it one to remember.
Knowing the sort of vibe you are going after is key: intimate and cosy or a big event space fit for a full-on party? Birmingham offers everything from exclusive room hire to sweeping outdoor spaces. You can of course add your own personal touch to any venue, but make sure you have a list of characteristics that will prove the foundation of your event in Birmingham.
Birmingham’s many districts each have their own unique vibe and culture. Are you after the renovated industrial spaces of Digbeth or a gourmet city centre restaurant? How about the beautiful Georgian pubs and bars of the Jewellery District? Where you place your event is crucial to the planning process.
Top tip: When it comes to locating your event, remember to check for the transport connections: a city-centre bar might not have much parking, whereas you’ll want to pre-book a taxi for the out of the way venues.
Okay, so there are certain unavoidable truths about the British climate that can (literally) dampen any event. Luckily, the seasoned venues of Birmingham have adjusted to this rainy island in the best possible ways. Cosy up and watch the rain from the warmth of a canalside Pub or make use of the many covered outdoor areas - come sun or shine, don’t compromise on your event.
This is the most important event planning advice we can give. Don’t settle for second best or be told what is and isn’t possible. Always start your planning process by establishing what your event needs, if you set these out only the right venues will reach out.
At HeadBox we’ve come up with our brief builder to help you set out exactly what you want for your event. Let us know the specifics of your ideal party or meeting and we’ll make sure that only the right venues reach out. No more endless scrolling or fruitless email chains: Let the right venue find you.
Event budgeting is always a difficult process to master. It’s important to find out how the venue prices its hiring early on. Is there a ‘dry hire’ price (industry speak for the venue space without any extras)? Does the venue offer a minimum spend option - this will mean there is no hire fee, but you are expected to spend a certain amount on food and drink.
The best way to budget for a Birmingham event is to be proactive. Work out your guest list and set a per-head budget. This way you can be sure you’ve catered to everyone and can control the overall cost by spreading across each attendee. We’ve made it super easy for you to do this – just check out our brief builder where you can set a budget per head and watch the venues reach out to you. This way you control what you spend on your event.
Digbeth rightly holds its title as Birmingham’s coolest district. The old industrial quarter has had a bohemian renaissance in the past few years and now boasts a range of quirky spaces that can host your event. The aptly named Custard Factory is a converted factory that now swells with shops and workspaces that cater to Birmingham’s creative population. If you’re looking for something truly different it has to be Mama Roux’s – combining a New Orlean’s exuberance within the exposed brickwork of Digbeth’s underbelly.
Being a city Birmingham has fantastic transport links to the rest of the UK. We recommend keeping it green and making use of the excellent public transport links. For speed and comfort catch a train into Birmingham New Street Station which has regular services to every other UK hub. If you’re travelling on a budget then the bus might just be for you - It might take a little longer but your bank account will thank you. Birmingham Airport is only 7 miles from the city centre, meaning the international party-goers are also catered to.
What’s the best way to book an event in Birmingham? Booking a venue can be a painful experience. Scrolling through endless lists of bars, clubs and restaurants. Calling up and finding out the day you want is booked. More scrolling. More calling. It shouldn’t be this way and that’s where we come in. Simply tell us exactly what you’re looking for and we’ll get the venues to reach out to you – when you see an offer you like, book it right away with no stress. It’s how it should be.
