Online booking and payments for town & parish councils

You can use LemonBooking to manage bookings for halls & community centres, sports facilities, meeting rooms and market stalls. The system also allows you to quickly generate invoices, take online payments and sell tickets for events.

Online booking

Users can check the online calendar for availability and submit their booking requests. LemonBooking will then automatically provide a price estimate for the request and ensure that it doesn't clash with any pre-existing bookings.

You can decide whether to accept bookings immediately (e.g. for a tennis court) or to require approval (e.g. party in a community centre).

“ We run a busy Town Hall with three rooms and over two hundred customers. LemonBooking has all the function we need for web site, bookings and invoicing (it can handle payments as well but we do that on QuickBooks). The support is fantastic. We were already using another good booking system but Lemon had so many useful additional functions and was cheaper. ”

— Mark F.
