Saving time, effort and money here and there adds up to something much bigger. It frees you up for what you actually want to do. It makes you happy. And it makes us happy too! This little idea is exactly why we want to provide everyone with the easiest and quickest way to hire out cost effective venues.
Coming in any shape and size, our village halls, community centres, school halls and churches offer a great space for great people.
While we know there are people who do similar things to us, they all need you to call them and jot it down. With Booking Spaces you can browse, book and enjoy an intuitive platform that works around you.
Do you remember what you were doing in the middle of 2016? We were researching, planning and creating Booking Spaces; a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book cost effective spaces around the UK with absolute ease.
Whether you’re looking for a whole day event, a niece’s birthday party, or a group event for an hour, our aim is to get you in the best suited space – even those which you might not have realised were even there!
If you look after a venue meanwhile, we’re looking to give you the best way to manage that extra space. Whether its bringing in customers for their special occasions through our dynamic pricing, or keeping tabs on reservations and opening times, we have you covered.
What started as a simple idea is fast growing into one of the only online venue booking systems in the market, utilising technology to give flexibility of when and where to everyone.
“What spaces are best to hire out, do you know?”
While running his self-made entertainment business, Jamie Reece kept getting asked this question. The response “I’ll find out” has finally brought you this, us; Booking Spaces. A platform for anyone and everyone to list and book cost effective spaces.
With a great team of experienced professionals, we’re looking to grow across the UK in 2017 with a keen eye on London and specifically local areas. We want to build partnerships with venue managers as well as the community, all in the way of providing a better experience when it comes to booking spaces.
