From everyone at the Franklin’s Gardens team, we hope you’re staying safe. Events are currently not an option because of health risks. But we hope that soon, we’ll all be able to get back to normal.
To keep you busy, we’ve put together this blog to give you some guidance on how to plan an amazing event in future.
Planning an event is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Whether it’s an event in your personal life or for work. But, it can be complicated when you don’t plan for your event in the right way. The best way to plan for an event is to use a fun and detailed event planning checklist.
With an event planning checklist, you can organise everything you need for a great event. Here at Franklin’s Gardens, we’re experts in planning and holding events. This is an example of the sort of checklist our team will fill out when putting on a dynamic event. One of the most important things to consider for any event is the event venue. Choosing the perfect event venue is the first thing you need to tick off the checklist.
Choose the perfect event venue
The right event venue will provide the foundation for all your event planning. Venue hire is one of the most fun parts of planning an event. To choose the perfect event venue you need to know two things: what your event is and what your event is for. Once you work out the answers to these two questions you can set about the venue hire process.
Whether your event venue is for business or a party, you will need to work out the things you need from your venue to put on a great event. This could be parking spaces, WiFi access, and the right location. Do you need a fully-functional bar? How many guests are attending? Find a venue that matches all your needs and you’ve taken a massive step towards hosting the perfect event.
Franklin’s Gardens is able to host so many different events because it’s adaptable. There isn’t only one unique room to consider as a venue, we have a variety to choose from. This is why we put on great events for businesses, and friends and family.
At Franklin’s Gardens, we’re a dynamic and adaptable event venue in the centre of the UK. This makes Franklin’s Gardens an ideal place to host an event where your guests are travelling from across the UK. Northampton is close to the M1, is widely accessible by train, and in the centre of the country.
Set a timeframe
Whatever your event is, you need a timeline. Set the date you want your event to be held on. From there plan your checklist and give yourself deadlines leading up to this date. This will give you a clear outline of what you need to do and by what date.
One of the most important things to get down straight away is to send out invitations. This is obviously vital if you’re hosting a party. If you’re hosting a business conference, another thing you will need to do is publicise your event. Market the conference using a website and social media. This way more people will know about your event and attend the venue on the day.
As well as setting a timeframe, set a budget and decide how much you want to pay. At Franklin’s Gardens, we can help save you money by offering package deals which include, for example, catering deals.

Set-up your event
This is the final step, once you have sourced everything you need for your event – including entertainment, food, and equipment. If you’re hosting a party at your venue, this could be putting up decorations. If it’s a conference, make sure all the professional equipment you need is available and working.
Once you guarantee that everything is ready to go, it’s time to enjoy your event. If you choose Franklin’s Gardens as your event venue, our team will help you ensure your event goes off without a hitch. For more information on our event venue hire post-COVID-19, get in touch today:
