What Are Some Work Summer Party Ideas?

Hosting a work party is all about creating a fun and engaging experience that allows everyone on the team to relax and bond. Summer is a great time to do this as the fantastic weather expands the events you can do and allows you to celebrate in the gorgeous sunshine. 

We know how difficult event planning can be so we’ve highlighted in more detail below our top 7 work summer party ideas.

Host a Summer Barbecue 

Nothing is better on a hot summer’s day than a classic BBQ with all your workmates! This idea can be super simple and inexpensive to plan and put together and is a great way to create a relaxed environment for everyone to mingle and socialise. Simply pop to your local supermarket or shop and buy all the favourites: burgers, sausages, salad, kebabs and anything else you can grill. 

No BBQ  is complete without some refreshments to wash down all that delicious food and keep everyone cool in the heat. If you really want to elevate your bbq a keg is the perfect choice for everyone to enjoy that fresh draft taste. At Skinny Brands we offer 24-litre kegs for both our delicious Skinny Lager and Skinny IPA, perfect for keeping everyone refreshed all day long.

Adventure Day Out 

Summer is the perfect time to go out and embrace your adventurous spirit in the glowing sunshine. Adventure days out are the perfect time for everyone in the office to relax and blow off some steam. 

There’s a multitude of places you can go to experience action-packed activities including theme parks such as Alton Towers, water parks or high ropes. Many of these locations have corporate packages available to make your day as stress-free so you can enjoy the fun as much as possible.

Rooftop Pub Crawl

Pub crawls are a classic work party idea no matter the time of year or the weather but in summer this is the perfect chance to embrace the warm weather and make the crawl even better. 

Rooftop pub crawls mean you can bask in the glorious sunshine all while enjoying a cold beverage with your work pals.

You can even take it one step further and create drinking games for everyone to enjoy throughout the course of the pub crawl. If you are stuck for ideas we love this list of pub crawl games, simply pick your favourite one.

Picnic in The Park

Summer is the perfect opportunity to gather all your work friends together for a scrumptious picnic in the park. There’s no better feeling than lounging out in the sun and enjoying delicious food and drink. 

We recommend asking everyone to bring their favourite dish for everyone to enjoy potluck lunch style. Try delegating sweet and savoury evenly to make sure that there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

For beverages, there’s no better taste than a cold beer on a hot day. Our pack of 24 Skinny Lager bottles are the perfect choice.

Office Party 

A classic office party is always a great way to celebrate with all the staff for a cheap and convenient price. You can have a great time without worrying about extra costs of hiring a venue. 

If you really want to elevate your office party to the next level why not arrange some office games and create the ultimate snack and drinks table for everyone to enjoy? We recommend hiring one of our lager draught machines so you can have your very own pub-quality pint in the comfort of your own office.

Competition Day

A little healthy competition is a great way for everyone at your workplace to bond and there are so many fun and engaging activities you can do. 

Some of our favourite ideas include paintball, mini-golf, go-karting or even an office Olympics. Play into the competition aspect of the day and get trophies for the winners or do funny nominated awards like ‘best and worst player’. 

Competition days are a great way to get everyone involved and create memories that people will be talking about for months to come.

Outdoor Cinema Experience 

What better way to enjoy the summertime than by getting together with all your workmates and enjoying a cinema experience together?

There are plenty of companies such as Skylight Cinema where you can rent premium quality cinema equipment to create the ultimate cinema experience that everyone is sure to love. 

Add cosy beanbags, blankets and some tasty snacks and drinks and you’ve got everything you need for the perfect night. For the snacks and drinks, we recommend creating a pick-a-mix table that everyone can select and enjoy including sweets, popcorn and of course some refreshing beverages, such as these delicious Skinny IPAs, to help cool down in the hot sun.
