Summer Parties at The Guildford Pavilion

It is rather unusual to find a huge green expanse of land in the middle of a busy, commuting town. However, here at The Guildford Pavilion, we are lucky enough to benefit from also being a cricket ground, meaning we have the luxury of an idyllic space as our back garden, all through the year. This makes Summer Parties in Guildford easier and more memorable than ever!

The Sports Grounds

Pitch side, you’ll get to enjoy a panoramic view over the cricket grounds, neatly surrounded by gorgeous trees around the perimeter.  This unrivalled area has a capacity of 160, allowing for a wide scale of different options to enjoy yourself in the sunshine. For example, if you are looking for a way to celebrate your team, network in style or enjoy some food and drink with friends, our experienced team can offer bespoke marquee and festival hire to create a spectacle of an event.

With an adorable drinks hut adjacent, you and your guests will stay properly hydrated with a selection of opt-in drinks packages, such as a glass of bubbles on arrival or Pimms from the hut, or by simply making use of the contactless bar, equipped with gin, wine, cocktails, beer and soft drinks.

When booking with The Guildford Pavilion, our experienced team will help guide you through the event organisation process, dedicating professional event support before and during your day. This includes access to our long list of local suppliers, to help find the perfect catering, entertainment and decoration to create your vision. The choice for food at the venue is wide and varied, with caterers who are amenable to bespoke alterations. For instance, if you wanted a BBQ with a twist, our caterer The Tipsy Pigs can offer BBQs with influences from different places around the world, or another, Chop and Chip, can offer bespoke menus, with their main focus being sizzling meats.

Similarly, if you were looking to boogie the day away, The Guildford Pavilion has the facilities and contacts to create private gigs for you and your guests to enjoy, ranging from acoustic singers with guitars, to full on bands. When the night starts to wind in, the celebration can move to The Long Room, to party the night away in style.

The Roof Terrace

If you are a smaller group, and looking for a stylish, exclusive setting to celebrate, look no further than our reimagined Roof Terrace, launching in May. This extraordinary and unique space overlooks the green and other surrounding areas of Guildford, with views of Guildford Cathedral and The Mount. We couldn’t imagine a more picturesque place to enjoy the sunset with a cocktail in hand!

With access until 10:30pm, and a capacity of 40 guests, The Roof Terrace will offer a premium experience for the more personal celebrations. The team at The Guildford Pavilion will suggest suitable catering; such as canapés or bowl food, drinks; such as bespoke cocktails and high-class wine, and entertainment, based on your budget and requirements.

The Roof Terrace will be decorated with gorgeous greenery and comfortable seating, giving perfect Mediterranean vibes whilst looking over the best of British Summertime! Paired with a mobile bar brimming with refreshing drinks and personal service, there is no better place to enjoy your summer parties in Guildford.

The Long Room

Not all Summer Parties need to be outdoors, especially when you have incredible floor to ceiling windows like The Long Room does! Our main function space can be transformed in a way to create that feel of alfresco dining, by opening up the doors to let in the gentle summer breeze, whilst enjoying some of the finest food and wine Guildford has to offer!

The Long Room has a seated capacity of 120, and a standing capacity of 160, meaning it has many ways it could lend itself – for example, after a long day of team building, stand out from the crowd by throwing a VIP after party, with the help of our resident DJ, stylish furniture and fully equipped bar. Alternatively, the venue provides all the facilities necessary for Summer Awards Ceremonies, with state of the art A/V, and three course dinner menus to get your taste buds dancing.

Our Summer Dining Packages includes three course dinners from one of our chosen caterers, a drink on arrival, exclusively-chosen wine and bottled water for the tables.
