The founder of Venue Queen Claire Lee has three decades of experience working in hospitality sales, she loves helping clients get the best out of the venues she works with.

Venue Queen Ltd is a natural extension of the things Claire loved doing in her previous employments.

Now that Venue Queen is independent she can be even more creative and flexible, succeeding in delivering exactly what her clients want, instead of being restricted by the specifications of the venues she was employed by.


Claire started in the hospitality industry 30 years ago, working across many brands, THF, Thistle, Travelodge, Macdonald Hotels, independent country manor house hotels, and Champneys to name but a few.



With amazing experience and a lifetime’s worth of contacts both within the industry and outside. Venue Queen Ltd was founded in 2016, to meet her client’s needs. Finding trusted venues can be a time consuming, never ending task especially if you don’t know where to start.


Claire pulls from her extensive experience and business contacts to ensure each brief is fitted to the best venue to create an awesome event.


Many venues are amazing but are hidden gems, you need to know where to look. Matching the best venue to the client and their needs for each event. Negotiating the best deal for the client, whilst ensuring the venue can deliver each and every time.


"I love doing what I do, I love meeting new clients, building long term positive business relationships with customers and venues.  Seeing small ideas grow and develop into amazing events in awesome venues is what we do."

Jo's work means that more people discover great venues online, but because of the virtual experiences she creates, those people are twice as likely to turn up to those businesses in real life.
