Venue Finding Service

Finding a venue to host your event can be tough work, especially if you plan on bringing in your own team of catering and event planners (moi). Most venues who deal in the art of events will attempt to lock you into the in-house catering. We have done the hard yards. Our little black book of friendly and more importantly, flexible venues and locations will allow you take the full package or simply hire the room.
