On Tango Timetable the events are associated with venues. The venue can be set for a whole series of events or overridden on a per event basis.
As each venue has an address, they form the basis of the location searches on Tango Timetable. If you look for events within 20 miles of Manchester, then we find all the events which occur at venues within the range and show them to you.
Venues can have the following pieces of information:
In order to do the location searches, Tango Timetable thinks in terms of latitude and longitude values for each venue. In order to get these values we ask Google and we can only find the latitude and longitude values if Google recognises the address.
To help with this process, we have included a Google map on the Add Venue page. As you type the address, we'll try to plot it on the Google map, so you can see when it is successful.
