The Hire Space Story
What is Hire Space
Hire Space was founded in October 2011 by two friends and recent graduates, Will Swan ell and Edward Poland. Will was working as a teacher. He had noticed that his school’s sports hall sat unused while he paid £50 an hour to play in a leisure centre down the road. Meanwhile, the school budget wouldn’t stretch to textbooks for his Year 9 class. Edward was working in local politics nearby. Community centres in the area were losing their funding because they couldn’t fill their spaces. The groups that had been using these centres didn’t know where to look next. Will and Ed discussed solutions whilst breaking the world record for the longest ever 5-a-side football game in a school sports hall in Surrey. After twenty-seven-and-a-half hours, they had their idea down to a tee. Hire Space was born, and was soon receiving interest from venues far beyond the schools and community centre’s at the idea’s core. Within a couple of months it had hotel groups, conference centre’s, leisure centre’s, bars, galleries, boats, stadiums and much more lined up for launch. As such, it will be a tool for people booking an enormous range of activities including events, business, sports and arts. Whatever spaces people are looking for, Hire Space will help them to find, book and pay for them online.
