Choosing an outdoor space for your next event can be very exciting. However, there is a lot to think about too. Do you want an outdoor venue space that is attached to a traditional venue? This would mean that food, toilets, drink, etc can be supplied by the venue. However, you could choose a completely unique venue and bring in everything you need for the event.

The biggest consideration for outdoor events is that you can’t guarantee the weather. This means you need to think about some form of cover. The cover will work to protect your guests against rain as well as offering shade in the hot summer sun.

There are lots of different and unique outdoor event spaces in Cambridgeshire. We are lucky enough to have country estates and historic buildings, for example. These places lend themselves perfectly to team-building activities, corporate evening events and more. The added bonus of a country estate or historic building for your outdoor event space is that it offers lots of privacy and it can be privately hired for your event only.

However, for a more informal event such as a community get-together or similar, you could hire a local park or open space. Here in Cambridgeshire, we are incredibly lucky to have some wonderful green outdoor spaces. For example, there are Milton County Park, Ferry Meadows, Hinchingbrooke Country Park, the Rowing Lake, Skylark Maize Maze and so many more. All of these are available to hire as an outdoor event space in Cambridgeshire.

Venues that have an outdoor space will often be able to offer their in-house event management team to help you manage your event. This could include things like temporary structures, outdoor catering, seating, marquees and such like.

In circumstances like this, the outdoor event planners here at Elite Events ECL can be your event management team to manage all this for you. Alternatively, we can be your ‘on the day planners’ to ensure everything runs smoothly on the big day.

If you choose to have your community event, wedding or party in a local park or green area that is not attached to a venue, a lot more planning will be needed. This is where we come into our element. We will discuss everything you need for your event and then we can source it all for you. This can include marquees, outside catering and entertainment, right through to the marketing of the event and ticket sales.
