Do you have an event coming up and the forecast is looking a little (or a lot)......drab? Have you spent the time (and funds) organising items from multiple suppliers - entertainment, balloons, cake, desserts, food, maybe even prop and furniture hire and catering? Don't let wet weather ruin your plans!
Here's what you need to do:
About a week from your event, check the forecast. We use a range of apps and sources to help determine what the weather may be. These include: Accuweather, Weatherzone, BOM, Rain Parrot, Google Weather and Willy Weather (a few of my faves). Always check your local vicinity opposed to just *Sydney* because it can be forecast to rain along the coast but not in, say, Lidcombe!
Because you're still a week out, the forecast can still be unreliable BUT...unless its absolutely going to be clear weather on the day with a very low chance of rain, we highly recommend looking into organising a backup space, just in case. Check the day prior and after, too. That's what I do every week, for every location we are booked in!
But what kind of space is available?
WELL, I am so glad you asked. All local government councils have a range of halls and venues for hire and they're usually very reasonably priced! Simply jump online and search your local government council website to see what they have available. We recommend anything with a high roof to ensure your *larger* style jumping castle (if you've hired one) can fit but even scout halls, local PCYCs, golf clubs, bowling clubs and Surf Life Saving Clubs have indoor spaces you can hire.
Looking for something a little more private? Our top blank space venue hire friends are listed below for you:
The B Space: Breakfast Point
Party Splendour Studio: Mortdale
The Fiddler: Rouse Hill
Looking for more? We highly recommend checking out Spacely :)
Still desperate to keep the party at home and the forecast is light showers? Hire a marquee! You can’t go past Marquee Empire !
We hope this helps!
