There’s something to be said for those warm, outdoor summer events that allow us to enjoy cold glasses of refreshing lemonade and open toe sandals. Just close your eyes and imagine the sound of excited chatter as the aroma of the sizzling barbeque drifts on the cool summer breeze, all while sipping on a chilled glass of Pimms… now that’s summer party perfection!
So if that’s what you’re after, then you’ll be pleased to know that we don’t just limit ourselves to fantastic team building days or unforgettable Christmas parties: we plan fun-filled corporate summer parties too! In fact, we’re particularly good at planning company summer BBQ’s, which is a good thing too as it’s our most popular type of summer event.

Can I theme my summer BBQ party?
Many companies don't want a summer party the way they are precisely set by the venues, many want to optimise it to match the brand or to go with a fun theme they want to adopt, therefore this is a common question we receive. This depends on the venue and what can be arranged on a case by case basis. Though we often find that many of the summer BBQ party packages don't necessarily need any theming: by nature, Barbecues are chilled and casual which is part of the appeal. However, if it’s theming you want then it is worth putting in an enquiry and detailing exactly what you're after. For example, the Mad Hatter’s tea party theme has proven popular in the past because of its playful decorations and costumed actors. Other themes corporations have included are Arabian Nights with its rich colours or the enchanted garden theme.
When to book this summer event
We recommend putting in an enquiry in the early spring with a date in mind to ensure availability. As with booking a Christmas party, some of the most popular options and venues do book up quicker for peak periods, therefore earlier you can make the enquiry, more likely you will have the office party of your dreams.
