Here at Eventa, we’ve been responsible for some of the UK’s best corporate events since 2009. So we like to think that we know a thing or two about how to organise them! Now seeing as its summer time, many companies are deciding to get into the summer spirit by hosting their office events near the good old British seaside.
Each year we host several summer parties (and several office Christmas parties) in Brighton, and whilst it’s near Brighton, many people seem to forget about the pretty town of Eastbourne! In fact we’d go as far as to say that this scenic, seaside town is the perfect place to host your office event and if you’re still not convinced we’ve handpicked some of the top 5 venues in Eastbourne…
All Saints Chapel
Named as one of the most beautiful venues in Sussex the All Saints Chapel is actually a fully licensed venue and not a church (despite the name.) The chapel is a grade II listed gothic revival building with beautiful stained glass windows and a full alcohol license. The venue are happy to accommodate most themes and if you want to visit the beach then it’s only a short walk away! Definitely (in our opinion) the most glamorous place to have an office party in Eastbourne!
Built in 1875 and designed by Henry Curry, the Winter Garden consists of two parts the Floral hall which was originally a skating ring and the grand Gold Room. Both parts have been used for conferences/office parties and they both have fully licensed bars. Plus with a huge seating capacity and gorgeous high ceilings this venue is very popular for large office Christmas parties.
Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club Ltd
Considered to be Eastbourne’s most impressive venue, the Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club has stunning views over the harbour. It also has free all day parking and is able to cater for approximately 150 guests. Plus the venue comes with all the latest visual and audio instalments (including Wi-Fi) so whether you’re planning a riveting conference or a glamorous office party the Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club can accommodate all your needs.
Perfect for smaller companies The Pavilion is a unique venue that seats approximately 50 guests and it’s right on the Eastbourne seafront! It’s a wonderful place to enjoy canapés and drinks and with a choice of menus to suit every taste this venue it a great place for a cosy company party.
The International Lawn Tennis Centre
Complete with panoramic view and a wide range of function rooms The International Lawn Tennis Centre (ILTC) is the perfect modern setting for conferences and office parties. On site caterers offer delicious meals to suit all tastes and a fully licensed bar means that you and your colleagues can have a fun filled day to remember!
