Everything You Need for a Sizzling Summer Party

Some thoughts to keep in mind when planning a summer party.

It’s probably not all that obvious to most of us in the UK in the mostly rainy month of May 2024, but believe it or not summer’s here! And although we never stop talking about our notoriously unreliable weather, we Brits are very good at making the most of a bit of sun when we get it. One way of doing that is to start laying plans right now for a big summer bash when the temperatures are really starting to soar – and, let’s face it, a summer party simply has to be held in the great outdoors… So the first thing to consider is when’s the right time? Maybe it’s a major birthday or anniversary, celebrating a graduation or another major life event… On the other hand, who needs a reason! Why not just celebrate summer! Whatever the rationale, though, you might want to make sure somewhere suitable has your preferred dates available with a quick internet search for something like ‘party venue in Hertfordshire’. Obviously, the chances are that key dates such as the August bank holiday weekend have been bagged long ago – and the school summer holidays generally are always tricky (even if you can find a venue, you may find many of your guests already have holidays planned).

Now you need to consider the style of party you want – because that will determine the type of venue you need. If it’s quite formal you need somewhere with established catering and logistical facilities – and even if you have a fabulously wild and fancy-free affair in mind, for any significant numbers you’re going to need decent sanitary facilities, power, sound, and lighting and so on. The conventional solution would probably be a hotel or pub with a decent garden or courtyard area for al fresco drinking, dining, and dancing… Or even your own or a friend’s back garden if you’re lucky enough to have the space. But a far more romantic and truly exciting approach would be to hire your own little piece of heaven in the leafy Hertfordshire countryside where you can create the party of your dreams. Full disclosure – we may be just a little biased, but we don’t think you can beat Frogmore Fields! To put it simply, it ticks all the boxes. 

Let’s take a look at the key criteria cited by those in the know for planning a summer party and see how Frogmore Fields fares.

An accessible yet inspirational setting.

Box thoroughly ticked on both counts! Although Frogmore Fields is something of a hidden gem, tucked away in unspoilt woodland and meadows, it’s also amazingly well-connected geographically: just half an hour by road or rail from London, easily accessible from the A1, M1 and M25 and within minutes of local hotels and B&Bs.

Access to technical and logistical services.

Because it’s a dedicated weddings, festivals and corporate events venue, Frogmore Fields has everything sorted, from sanitation, water, and power supply to parking, staging, sound and lighting, seating and more.

All weather cover.

With sister company Alternative Stretch Tents on site, Frogmore Fields has parties of any size covered in style – so no worrying about the weather!

First class drinking and dining.

The Frogmore Fields team are seasoned weddings, festivals and events professionals who can’t wait to get their teeth into new creative challenges – banquets to barbecues, formal dining to grazing tables and street food. 

Great entertainment.

It’s a festival venue, so our ‘little black book’ is packed with the coolest (or the hottest) DJs, live bands, cabaret, and any kind of entertainment you can imagine.

And finally – the party spirit!

We like to think every member of our team is a master of the art of parties (and the science too). The party spirit runs in our veins – so why not talk to the Frogmore Fields team and see the proof!
