After all of the talk of the approaching warm weather every time the sun comes out or people walk past our offices wearing a t-shirt and shorts (ill-advised), we are now just four days away from the official start of British summertime. We would also like to point out that the decision to write a blog about the impending summer parties season was in no way influenced by the fact that there isn’t a cloud in the sky today, possibly.
This morning we received the news that everybody’s favourite summery 90s pop group S-Club 7 are set to reform for a series of shows in the sunshine. The band have reportedly signed a seven-figure deal to reunite, a source explaining that the imminent summer Olympics and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has led to a ‘real British feel-good factor at the moment’. Whilst we of course agree, that feel-good factor might be a little dented by the outcome of the Budget later today. But we’re a fun corporate events organisation at the end of the day, so we won’t get into politics!
Also on the topic of summer, patriotism and pop music, former Spice Girl Geri Haliwell today launched a clothing range based on her famous Brit Awards Union Jack dress. The ideal way to really capture the nation’s mood before the summer games? You bet!
But enough about millionaire pop stars, let’s talk parties! Venues across the capital in particular are gearing up for a busy season to tie in with the games. Corporates are looking to impress both their employees and their competitors with big, bold events and we’ve got a feeling that rivals are going to be spending all summer trying to outdo each other in the party stakes. A few years ago the idea of a summer party was restricted to only the largest organisations as budgets were squeezed to within an inch of their lives. But now, with many affordable options available to groups, that is changing.
Click here to check out some of our themed outdoor events on offer this summer. The good news is that you aren’t tied down to a certain venue, so if there’s a fabulous country mansion or picturesque outdoor space that you want to make use of to bring one of these sophisticated soirées or roaring barbecue parties to life then we can make it happen. Let the good times roll!
