More about Summer Party Venues in Manchester

Why should I choose Manchester for my summer party?

Manchester is a great city for events, including summer parties. There are plenty of venues to choose from, and the city has a lively and vibrant atmosphere with a fantastic culture.

Some of the city's top summer party venues include nightclubs, bars, restaurants and hotels, but for a more unique party experience, there are also a number of quirky and unusual venues located in and around the city. There are a number of great outdoor venues that would be perfect for a summer party, including Heaton Park, Platt Fields Park, and Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens. If you're looking for a more unique venue, there are also a number of museums and historic buildings that offer event spaces, such as the Manchester Museum and Chetham's Library.

If you're looking for a great corporate summer parties venue in Manchester, Hire Space can help. We offer a free venue finding service and our team of event experts will be happy to help you find the perfect space for your event. Contact us today to find out more!

How much does it cost to hire a venue for a summer party in Manchester?

The cost of hiring a summer party venue in Manchester will depend on the type of event you are hosting, the location of the venue, the date of the event, and the size of the space. Prices can vary but you can expect to pay around £500 for a small venue, or £2000+ for a large venue.

When planning your summer party, it's important to consider the cost of hiring a venue as well as any other costs that might be associated with the event (e.g. catering, entertainment, decorations). Work with the venue to find the best suppliers/deals for your event so you can keep costs down. Some venues may work on a total package basis, whereby you pay a set figure which includes venue hire, catering, AV, and any other things you require. Other venues will use a Per Person style package, which may work out cheaper for smaller events. Some venues like restaurants and bars won’t charge for venue hire (or will charge a small amount) but will require you to spend a minimum amount of money during the event on food and drinks. It all depends on the venue, so make sure you talk this through with your options before making a decision on your venue.

What should I do if it rains at my summer party?

We all know that when living in England, one of the things you'll need to consider is what to do if it rains. There are a few options available to you, depending on the type of party you're planning and your budget.

One option is to go for an outdoor space but have a backup option in case it rains so you can move the party indoors. A good example of this is hiring a rooftop space with an adjoining space indoors that guests can use.

Another option is to use a semi-covered venue which allows guests to stay where they are in bad weather. Gazebos or retractable rooves offer cover if the heavens open. Lastly, you could host your party indoors from the get go - this may work well for a large party in a warehouse style venue and will give you peace of mind. However, if your party is in mid summer, it would be a shame not to make the most of what little sunshine you may get, so try and at least have a welcome drink outside before guests file in. Sun is a luxury in England - use it to your advantage when you can!

Whatever you choose make sure you have a contingency plan in case of bad weather so your party can go ahead no matter what! Event planning is all about planning for the worst case scenario.

Things to consider when searching for summer party venues in Manchester

When searching for the perfect venue, here are a few things to consider:

  • Is it in budget? A larger party in the centre of Manchester on a Thursday night in July will cost more than a smaller party on the outskirts say on a Tuesday night. Look at your budget and be flexible when it comes to dates. Also start your search quite early on, as venues will get booked up quickly! Don't forget to factor in things like catering, entertainment and decoration costs too.
  • Ask the right questions. Ask the venue about what is in included, what they can provide, their facilities and amenities and about all the things you need to know before moving forward with your decision.
  • Finalise your numbers. This will really affect your venue search, so make sure you know the numbers you’re expecting, accounting for drop off too. Make sure the venue can comfortably accommodate your expected number of guests.
  • Identify the best location for you. Choose a location that is easy to get to, and close to public transport. Also consider how late you want your party to go on for, as there may be restrictions on some venues if they’re in residential areas, for example. -- Access: Make sure you know what time you'll be able to access the site and how long you'll have to set up.
