Online booking is now very much part of our everyday lives. People expect to be able to view availability and book directly through their computer or mobile phone. So that you and your village hall don't get left behind, Hallmaster.co.uk developed the most advanced and easy to use Booking & Invoicing System, specifically designed to save you time and increase revenue and that can easily be integrated into your existing website.


ACRE, our national association,  has recently secured an agreement to offer community buildings that are members of the Staffordshire Village Halls Advisory Service   a discount on the annual Booking Management System Licence.

You can have a 90 day free trial, but when you sign up for a full annual licence (which includes full technical support) your hall will receive a £10 discount, provided your hall is a member of the Village Halls Advisory Service.

If you are interested in a demonstration of the system, please contact your Cathy Russell, Village Halls Adviser on 01785 242525 Ext 206, who can arrange a demonstration if there is sufficient interest from other halls in the area .
