Sheffield, Rotherham and Leeds Groups to benefit from Yorkshire Venues Website

Thanks to funding from Sheffield FUSE, Transforming Rotherham Infrastructure Services (TRIS) and Transform Leeds Development Fund voluntary and community groups in Sheffield, Rotherham and Leeds can now benefit from free listing on the Yorkshire Venues website.

Since its launch last summer over 200 village halls and community buildings from across North Yorkshire have benefitted from a free listing on the Yorkshire Venues Website.  and RAY is already hearing of people booking a village hall as a result seeing a listing on the website.


In these times when every booking counts and where the power of the internet is becoming more significant; the Yorkshire Venues Website provides a way for venues to gain a web presence and gain wider publicity.  For buildings that already have a web presence, the site provides an additional opportunity to direct traffic to their site.

Listings can include:

·         Location and directions

·         Pictures of the hall/building including individual rooms

·         Facilities and equipment available to hire

·         Facilities for people with disabilities

·         Details of regular bookings and contacts for user groups

·         A form to send an inquiry to the booking clerk

·         Telephone number for contacting the booking clerk

Search Facility

The site provides an easy to use search facility for anyone looking for a venue to host an event. Whether a family celebration, a craft sale, sports or dance class or even as a venue for indoor camping for Scout and Youth groups wanting to enjoy the North Yorkshire Countryside and coast.

Users can either search using.

·         A venue list

·         Village name or postcode

·         Or by zooming in on a map showing all the listed venues


If you would like a free listing for your hall or community building please contact the RAY Office on 0845 313 0270 or send a request using the online form which can be found below.
