Why should I use VenueScanner?
Firstly, it’s a free service. There are no search fees or booking costs taken by VenueScanner; we’re just a handy platform here to help you discover all of the community halls for hire in Manchester.
We’ve also got a lowest price guarantee, because we’re committed to getting you the best deal. You’ll find that venues list their lowest prices on our platform, and if you happen to see it available cheaper elsewhere, we’ll refund the difference.
Another reason to use our service is that we’ve got a whole raft of hidden gems and lesser-known venues to choose between. We know that inspiring venues lay the foundations for inspiring events, so we make it our goal to put these beautiful spaces on your radar. We’re determined to offer the best community hall hire Manchester has to offer, so if you spot somewhere great that should be on our platform but isn’t, please get in touch and we’ll look to put that right.
Our advanced filters help you find the perfect fit. Click here to search for community halls for hire in Manchester, then simply add in as much detail as you like to start honing in on your top choice space.
We’ve also got over 10,000 user reviews on our website - here to help you make an informed choice - and everything you could possibly need to know about a venue; from layout and capacity to pricing and pictures.
We could keep listing reasons to try VenueScanner but we’re concerned our heads won’t fit through the door, so we’ll wrap it up here for now.
Alright, how does VenueScanner work then?
This is our homepage in all its glory. To start searching for your next venue, simply add in a few details: your area, event type, guest numbers and venue type, then hit ‘Search Spaces.’
This will take you to a search results page, where you’ll have an overview of the top choices that meet your criteria. Add some extra filters if you’d like - filters concerning date & time, layout and budget - or click through to one of the venue profiles, where you’ll get an in-depth look at each different space.
On a venue profile page, you can see details relating to capacity and layout, the amenities, pictures and a description. Some of the spaces listed on VenueScanner have 3D Tours, so you can take a virtual look around a potential venue without having to travel in person. Each venue has a percentage score for previous visitors that would book again, and a ‘typically responds in’ message lets you know how quickly you can expect a response to your enquiry.
Once you’re happy and would like to make a booking, you can do so without leaving our website. Just add in all of your preferred details and click ‘Send Quick Enquiry’. VenueScanner guarantees a 100% refund of the first deposit on payments made through us (up to £500).
That’s probably the best way to discover and book a community centre in Manchester, but you could also search via our Manchester hub page, or fill out a venue finder form here if you are short on time.
What type of events are suited to a community hall?
The beauty of community centres is that they can be used for so many different events.
Got a weekly pilates class you want to run from somewhere convenient and relatively cheap? There’s a community hall for that. Need to find a space for a child’s birthday party where there’s plenty of room to run around and play? There’s a community hall for that. Starting up an am-dram group where actors can express themselves in a relaxed but well-appointed environment? There’s a community hall for that, too.
What is VenueScanner Concierge?
Heard about our Concierge service? You haven’t? Well strap yourself in, we’re about to give you a full rundown.
This is another free service, but this time it’s for corporate event organisers; the busy office manager or personal assistant who has a million-and-one tasks on their to-do list. These guys are able to outsource venue-finding for a corporate event - a conference, AGM, meeting or Christmas party - to us, where we’ll negotiate the best rates with venues and source event suppliers on their behalf.
We keep everything 100% transparent and send the organiser a curated document that sums up all of their options, and we do it quickly: aiming to have you booked in to your top choice venue within a week of the initial enquiry.
It’s not necessarily aimed at those seeking community centres for hire in Manchester but it’s good for a raft of other venue-hire enquiries. Give it a try here.
