Displaying event venue name using shortcode

hello I am trying to display the upcoming events on my homepage
I am using [ESPRESSO_EVENTS limit=3] and ading content-espresso_events-shortcode.php to my child theme I have:

<?php the_title(); ?>
<?php espresso_event_date("M d, Y", " ", $post->ID) ?>
$VNU_ID = espresso_venue_id( $post->ID); //Get venue id
$venue_name = espresso_venue_name( $VNU_ID,"none", FALSE ); //Venue name
echo $venue_name ?>

the title and date work fine, but I can’t make the venue name to display, what I am missing here?

If I were to guess, the $post-ID used there may be the post ID of the page that has your shortcode on it.

You could try doing this instead:

$venue_name = espresso_venue_name( NULL, 'none', false );
