Company Focus

Alternative Venues London

We are a non-profit organisation which generates additional funding for the Cadets and Reserves of Greater London by hiring out Military Venues in London for various different types of activities.

Alternative Venues London (AVL) is the dedicated venue hire department within the Greater London Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association (GLRFCA).

With 40 Reserve Forces and 75 cadet sites spread across London available for commercial venue hire, the money generated by AVL is directly reinvested in supporting the Reserves and Cadets and helping maintain the Estate.
