Work Summer Party Ideas

The best way to celebrate the start of the summer season is with an unforgettable work party. Here are some of our favourite suggestions for summer party work ideas.

Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay pigeon shooting is an exciting, competitive activity for colleagues to enjoy together. It will be a refreshing break from the typical office environment, allowing everyone to unwind and relax. Choose a location that will provide hospitality and tuition to make this the perfect activity for a summer work party.


Consider adding an axe throwing event to your summer work party for an unusual and unique experience. Axe throwing locations typically have the capacity to accommodate up to 200 guests, so they will be suitable for larger gatherings. Qualified instructors will be nearby to provide guidance and ensure safety so that the participants can enjoy the thrill and exhilaration of axe throwing in a controlled, supervised and safe environment.


Suitable for all ages and skill levels, bowls is played on special designated greens or lawns. Colleagues can enjoy friendly competition while socialising in a relaxed atmosphere. This traditional pastime is a laid-back alternative to more high-energy activities.

A Summer Boat Trip on the Thames

Whether opting for exclusive hire or joining a public cruise, teams can enjoy views of London’s iconic landmarks while cruising along the river. With onboard catering options often available, guests can dine and socialise while taking in the iconic sights of the city. Consider organizing a BBQ on deck, accompanied by refreshing summer cocktails or Pimms. You could also arrange for a DJ to provide music throughout the event or choose a boat where you can dance beneath the stars.

Rooftop Bar or Cafe

A rooftop bar is the perfect place to see beautiful panoramic views of the city skyline while mingling with colleagues. Terrace gardens will be able to accommodate various types of activities, such as outdoor dining, a DJ and various entertainment or team-building exercises.

A Garden Party

Garden and courtyard venues will be secluded and private, providing a more intimate setting for your event away from the hustle and bustle of the city. These types of venues are ideal for cocktail receptions, allowing guests to mingle and socialise amidst the natural beauty of manicured gardens. Many garden venues will also offer exclusive hire options, providing your company with sole access to the space for your event, ensuring that your party remains and exclusive affair.

A Funfair Event

Consider hosting a summer festival carnival-themed work party for an unforgettable experience. Hire some funfair themed attractions such as a Ferris wheel, carousel, and dodgems to create a vibrant, festival atmosphere. You could add some side stalls offering exciting prize giveaways for lucky winners. Finish the day with delicious summer BBQ and a cocktail reception.

Many venues will also be able to provide dedicated event planners or coordinators, if requested, who will be able to assist you in organising and running your work party. Their expertise will ensure that every aspect of your event is meticulously planned and executed, from catering to entertainment, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy the special occasion. is a trading name of Eureka Events Ltd. registered Office: 27 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AX
