Event Promoter Opportunity

We present a fantastic opportunity for event promoters to use this historic building as a venue for their own organised functions, with the cavernous room equally suited for club nights, bingo and casino themed evenings, talent shows, musical gigs and stand-up comedy performances.

With revenue share opportunities, we are happy to negotiate terms that are mutually beneficial to all parties. Get in touch to discuss any ideas and opportunities you have available.

Revenue Share Opportunities

The Empress Ballroom has hosted hundreds, if not thousands of events over the past hundred years, and has begun doing so again. This presents a wonderful opportunity for aspiring and professional promoters to bring their unique brand of entertainment to the iconic Mexborough venue.

There are opportunities for organisations and individuals who have an interest in launching and hosting one-off and regular social evenings with the Empress Ballroom as the regular venue and operating them on a revenue share basis. We are happy to manage ticketing and payment systems in partnership with our payment provider SOTpay, and share the revenues generated by tickets sales with the event promoter.

Events we are interested in holding within the confines of our historic building include:

Live Staged performances

Mexborough has a proud heritage of hosting some great gigs, and rumour has it that an unknown band called the Beatles once booked to play the halls of the Empress Building. Whether you’re looking to host your own mini one-day festival or simply a one-off gig, the Empress Ballroom is ready for you with a generous capacity, which has the potential to generate plenty of revenue for a great event promoter.

Comedy Nights

With its wide auditorium and spacious stage area, the Ballroom is an ideal space for hosting comedy nights and hosting well known comedians on nationwide tours.

Club Nights

No matter what the music style, the Ballroom is capable of holding up to 250 to 350 paying customers whilst the stage is perfectly equipped to hold a DJ and their equipment.

Casino / Bingo Evenings

With the spacious, open-plan ballroom and plenty of tables, our venue is ideal for playing host to regular Casino and Bingo events, including the wildly popular Boozy Bingo variety.

Craft & Record Fairs / Trade Shows / Supper Clubs

The huge hall of the Empress Ballroom makes an ideal open area for stallholders in several rows, or situated around the edge of the room, with plenty of space for paying customers to browse and spend their money with your stallholders.
