Outside Space

The Great British summer doesn’t last long, so outside space is our number one priority when it comes to planning summer celebrations. Make the most of the warmer months and enjoy alfresco drinks receptions and parties within the exclusive grounds of The Artillery Garden, HAC, The Pavilion at the Tower of London or the private terrace of Old Billingsgate for maximum summertime satisfaction.

Barbecues

Nothing says summer like the unmistakable scent of a barbecue. Strong, honest flavours and plenty of mouth-watering meat make barbecues perfect for entertaining, enabling guests to enjoy outside space as they dine in a relaxed, informal setting. Award winning caterers Create have been responsible for providing some of the finest grilled cuisine we’ve ever laid eyes upon.

Funfair

So a funfair isn’t exactly essential to all summer parties, but in terms of extraordinary entertainment it can’t be beaten. City venue The Artillery Garden at the HAC comes complete with a funfair for summer events, with dodgems and a host of stalls where you can unleash your competitive streak. Childish excitement guaranteed.

Food Stalls

Designed to allow guests to mingle as they enjoy a selection of different catering options, food stalls are ideal for summer events. Alfresco parties and receptions are perfectly suited to such stalls, which offer the added benefit of enabling guests to spend more time in a venue’s outside space without the need to move inside for seated catering.

Summer Drinks

No summer party is complete without a selection of thirst quenchers which make the most of stunning seasonal produce. From cocktails and Pimm’s to bubbles and expertly mixed fruity concoctions the importance of summery drinks simply cannot be underestimated. And they all taste much better as soon as the sun puts in an appearance. We’ll have a Pimm’s, if you’re offering.
