If you’re feeling a little daunted by the task of organising your Ladies Festival and don’t want to search for your own venues, then our assistance service supplied by Square Events is here to help.
Our Masonic events team are here to guide you through the venue finding process, providing you with a comprehensive comparison of venues available within your chosen area.
All you need to do is contact us with your dates, location and numbers and we’ll do the rest! Our service is fast, free and we are experienced Ladies Festival organisers.
Here’s a summary of what you can expect from our assistance service:
We can also supply ‘Guest Management’ services on request (at an additional charge) which includes handling of all guest bookings, booking and payment of all suppliers and all associated printing, postage and administration costs.
A question we’re often asked is ‘with so many venues to chose from, how do I know which one is right for my Ladies Festival?’
Here are a few important points for you to think about:
Has the venue had previous experience with Masonic events?
Ladies Festivals have many nuances that make them unique. To deliver a successful event previous experience is priceless. Our team regularly works with venues up and down the UK and can advise you of previously booked venues.
Is the venue large enough to house your expected number of guests?
There’s nothing more frustrating than finding a venue you love only to find it isn’t large enough for your event. Our team will match your requirements to venues with exactly the right amount of function space and bedrooms right from the start.
Location. Location. Location. Is the venue accessible to all your guests with enough places of interest nearby to encourage maximum interest?
For a weekend event you need to find that balance between being far enough away that people will want to make a weekend of it but not too far that they decide it’s too difficult to attend. We can advise you of travel times, transport and ideal locations.
Can the venue be sympathetic with the unpredictable nature of final numbers?
The biggest pitfall of organising this type of event is entering into a contract with the venue guaranteeing a pre-agreed minimum number and then not reaching those numbers. We are here to negotiate and advise on contracts and minimum numbers and to reach a workable agreement for both sides.
Are you getting value for money?
Because arranging Ladies Festivals is what we do day in, day out we have strong market knowledge and an excellent awareness of what venues should be charging based on a number of factors, including previous event quotes. We will negotiate on rate inclusions and help create a package that’s right for you and your budget.
Will you require additional suppliers?
At Square Events we can put you in touch with florists, entertainment agents, photographers and toastmasters who are experienced Masonic event suppliers.
