Your guide to choosing a function room in Birmingham

Function rooms come in all shapes and sizes and can be used for any number of events so choosing the right space might seem a little daunting. But we’re here to help, here are our top tips for finding the right venue for your function.

How to find the right function room

First things first, let’s think about the function of your function room. What kind of event are you hosting and what facilities will you need?

Planning a party in a function room for example? Pubs and restaurants with private function rooms are a great option and Birmingham is full of brilliant ones. Most offer a minimum spend package without a hire fee so you simply need to spend a set amount on food and drink for the evening.

If your function room is for a work event or networking, then hotel function rooms might be a good fit. Many offer packages at a per head price and you’ll have the accommodation on your doorstep for those who are travelling for the event.

How to set your function room budget

If budget is a consideration and you’re looking for something a bit cheaper then a dry hire function room might be what you’re looking for. This will allow you to bring your own food, drink and decorations which gives you greater control over your budget. This is a brilliant option for parties and weddings.

Community halls, sports clubs and even Birmingham University have function rooms to hire too which are often cheaper than city centre venues or more popular hotel locations. Heading a bit further outside the city centre will also be a cheaper option and there are some lovely venues across Birmingham from Digbeth to Moseley and beyond that are just waiting to be discovered."
