Your guide to party planning in Birmingham

If you’re planning a private party in Birmingham and you’re looking for the perfect venue for your big celebration then you’re in the right place. HeadBox is the easy way to party plan, simply tell us what kind of venue you’re looking for, sit back and let the venues come to you. You’ll only receive responses from available venues, so we’re taking the guesswork out of planning too.

Party planning isn’t always easy, so we’ve put together a few top tips to help you find the best venue for your celebration.

Small is beautiful

Big isn’t always best, we love an intimate party too. Birmingham has a plethora of small venues perfect for cosy celebrations with your nearest and dearest. Private dining rooms or exclusive spaces in bars are great options - they tend to be a bit cheaper too if budget is a consideration.

Outdoor celebrations

The weather isn’t always on our side in the UK but outdoor celebrations are great all year round. Celebrate the summer on a rooftop, host an elegant garden party or even a BBQ with friends at one of Birmingham’s best venues with outside space. We love the rooftop at The Library of Birmingham or the terrace at The Button Factory.

Organise something unusual

If you’re planning for a really special occasion like an engagement party, anniversary or big birthday then why not consider something a bit more unusual and make it really memorable. We love unique, out of the ordinary venues - something cool that really gets your guests talking. We love the creative vibe of Digbeth with its warehouses (perfect for a big party) or the iconic city centre buildings filled with history.

Consider your party planning budget

Whether you’re planning an engagement party, an office party or a family party, there are hundreds of venue options to suit your budget. Fancy splashing out on a luxury party? Why not hire a private dining room with your own private chef or go all out at one of Birmingham’s best rooftop venues.

Want to keep it simple? Perhaps looking for an affordable venue for a christening, children’s birthday or a family party? There are plenty of options in Birmingham if you look a bit beyond the city centre. Consider community halls or try a dry hire venue where you can provide the catering and decorations yourself - this is a great way to keep costs low.

Frequently asked questions

For party venues in Birmingham, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

The Compound – With a 25-seat cinema, an art studio and a speakeasy, this impressive party venue speaks for itself.

Aluna – Everything from the quirky decor, and neon lights to the floor-to-ceiling windows and canalside views of Brum, makes this venue a fun place to have your next private party.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a party venue. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Birmingham party venue. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best party venues in Birmingham and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
