How to link event location to venue website

I received this request on the forum:

Is there a way to assign a link to the “location” field? I’d like to list all events for a specific production on a page and have the “location” field linkable to the theatre address.

By default your events look something like this:

Default event HTML
The default event output where the title and thumbnail link to the production detail page.

Now add the following code to your (child)theme’s functions.php file:

The first parts adds a new ‘Venue URL’ field to the event editor:

Event editor with a Venue URL field

The second part of the code wraps the HTML output of an event location with a link to the venue URL:

The event location now link to the venue website.
The event location now links to the venue website.
