Website & Event Promotion
Help with promoting your event
If your event is public, you will be asked for event details that can be uploaded to the Village Hall Events Calendar. This will include an image, description, contact information, external website links (e.g. Facebook), etc.
You will also be asked if you’d like to feature your event. Basically, a featured event is one which gets greater visibility through the online activities of the Village Hall. Specifically this includes: (i) Your event gets a shout-out on the Village Hall Facebook page; (ii) Your event gets highlighted in the main events listing; (iii) Featured events appear on the home page as well as get posted to the sidebar of the events page; (iv) There is a dedicated page to all featured events.
It costs £3 to feature an event. As a registered charity, all funds raised goes to the upkeep of the Village Hall. You can feature an event during the bookings process, or contact the Village Hall Manager.
