We’re dreaming of Summer here at Hickory and that means our thoughts are turning to sun shine, longer days and of course delicious summer food and drink like BBQ’s, summer salads and jugs of our favourite cocktails.

With summer comes an air of excitement and fun, make the most of this and throw a summer work party – they’re not just for Christmas! – to celebrate the warmer weather (if we’re lucky!) and your team’s hard work so far this year.

Our dedicated Sales & Event Designers will help you every step of the way, creating an unforgettable summer soirée. Whether it’s a BBQ, sit down dinner or canapé reception that you’re looking for, we can cater to your needs.

Why throw a summer party?

Boost Morale

Recognising the hard work of your team and rewarding them for it is a great way to boost staff morale. They’ll feel valued and part of a great company where their dedication and hard work is appreciated.

Say Thank You

A summer party is a great way to say thank you to not only you staff but, customers and suppliers too. Give back to them and have them join you in your celebrations.

Team Bonding

Having company get togethers and events is a fantastic team bonding opportunity. Inviting the whole company will allow for different teams to meet one another outside of the office, in a more relaxed setting. Challenges and team building exercises could be put in place to encourage team work or just letting everyone mingle can be enough to generate a great team spirit.

Because it’s Summer!

This can be as good an excuse as any! With Christmas still feeling like a long time away, it’s good for people to let their hair down. With our brilliant BBQ and sunshine filled cocktails, catering for large groups and corporate events, you’ll have the perfect summer food and drink selection to get the party started!


Get in touch with our team to book your summer party, we can’t promise sunshine (this is Scotland after all!) but, we can guarantee smiling faces, fabulous food and creative cocktails which will help you kick start your summer.
