Make the most of the 2019 Indian summer and let us plan your September summer parties this year! It really is the best time to get everyone together and the Terrace at No.4 Hamilton Place is an ideal location to celebrate and thank your team for all their hard work.


Guest list

By the time you have your September summer party the majority of your staff will have already taken their big summer holiday so you’re likely to get a good number of RSVPs in the ‘yes’ pile. You’re also not going to be competing with all of the other summer events in your colleagues’ calendars as the party rush will have died down.

Cost effective

After the height of the summer season is over, you might well find that venues, caterers, florists and entertainers are either charging off-peak prices or have offers on. This will give you more cash to splash out on the extras, ensuring your guests have a truly memorable time. At No.4, we find organisers often choose to upgrade their catering if there’s a little room in the budget. Our fabulous in-house caterers, Blue Strawberry, offer a range of upgrades on their packages including extra drinks and nibbles and premium menu options. Have a look to see what your savings could get you for September summer parties.


Moving your summer party to September means you and your guests can enjoy the warmth of the late summer sun, without having to worry about the glaring heat of high summer. British event organisers tend to worry more about rain than heat (which is no surprise!) but having to keep guests cool can be just as much work as keeping them dry. All summer parties at No.4 come with hire of the Terrace and the adjoining Argyll Room – a perfect spot to cool down, warm up or shelter from the rain.

Seasonal ingredients

Summer menus make the most of the gluts of fresh and crunchy salad ingredients and fruits. But pushing your date back to September means you’ll also be able to enjoy some of the autumnal produce coming into season. Squashes, root veg and kale are all coming into their own at this time of year and will add deep colours and delicious flavours to your dishes. Our chefs always source their ingredients from local suppliers wherever possible and their menus are always seasonally inspired.
