Summer Parties – Still Time to Plan

Now we are seeing flashes of the warmer weather, it is the perfect time to plan your summer team events.

There are so many ways for your colleagues to relax together in the spring and summer months. We can help with everything from a BBQ and drinks, to a full on sports day or scavenger hunt, meeting and dinner!  HotelRes work with many venues that would be perfect – restaurants in London with outside terraces, hotels with onsite team activities, or venues with gardens and grounds.

We have already been working on some lovely events for people, here are just a few ideas:

  • An evening of drinks and food in London.  We have been looking at restaurants and bars for a client who wanted outside space for a team of 120. There are so many venues now in London that can offer outside space, whether it is a courtyard garden or a large roof terrace.
  • A team Summer Event which involves a country house setting for 80 people.  The day starts with a meeting, followed by a light lunch.  Then there is an afternoon of activities, utilising all the grounds.  For those that are feeling active there is a Schools Sports Day, with all the favourites – egg and spoon, bean bag and three legged races, amoungst others.  For those who just want to spend the afternoon outside there is a scavenger hunt that uses all the venue’s grounds, but also weaves in some team building connected to the company’s ethos. The team all come together for a BBQ, entertainment and an overnight stay.
  • For another client we have booked their bi-monthly team meeting, a two-day meeting with accommodation for 50 people.  But instead of a dinner, they have opted for a BBQ and some garden games at the hotel.
  • In Cambridge we have booked a treasure hunt round the city, ending in a bar for a quiz and BBQ on their roof terrace.

So, whether you just want to go out after work together as a team and have drinks and a private dinner or you want to arrange a full on summer party we have lots of ideas and contacts throughout the UK to help you find the perfect venue and suppliers.
