St-Martin-in-the-Fields has now launched a new website dedicated to its venue hire operation – venues.smitf.org.

The venue’s events and sales manager Andrew Papworth said of the new site: ‘When I joined St Martin’s in the summer, I was delighted with the spaces and catering available but didn’t feel our website was showcasing them in the way it should. We needed a new website that was easier to use and helped instead of hindered. I wanted our clients to picture themselves in our spaces whether it was for a conference or a work jolly. As the website evolves, we hope to share further content on what we do here at St Martin’s and this includes showing off our tempting menus created by our Executive Chef Dan Leavy.’

Since the website’s launch on 9 September, St Martin’s has seen website traffic increase by 20% compared to the same week last year. The venue is particularly pleased to see an increase in Christmas bookings from last year and strong initial sales for 2020. St Martin’s welcomes feedback on the new site at events@smitf.org.
