Summer Party Venues Hire Guide


Summer is a great time to let loose and have a fun celebration if your schedule allows it. Nothing beats the feeling of dancing to the biggest summer hits while enjoying a refreshing cold drink in the company of others who want to party all summer long just as much as you do. As the music capital of the UK, Manchester is a lively city with plenty to offer when it comes to summer party venues, so you are in for a treat.

Tagvenue is here to help you navigate the exciting journey of choosing the best event space for your event. Summer party venues in the city include rooftop venues, open terraces, and large halls with both indoor and outdoor areas. Rooftop venues are a particular highlight, holding up to hundreds of standing guests, with plenty of room left over for barbecues and picnic-style seating that overlooks the whole city of Manchester. Of course, the weather may be an essential factor to consider when partying during British summers, so ensure you have some covered areas too, in order to provide comfort for your guests.  

In other areas of Manchester, you can also find large terraces and function rooms that are well suited to an office/corporate summer party.
