Summer 2023: Brits are Eager to Celebrate Outdoors with Friends and Family


Warmer weather means more gatherings are being planned for friends and family to celebrate one-off and special occasions throughout the UK, no matter how big or small the reason. 

Tripleseat, the leading cloud-based software sales and event management platform for restaurants and unique venues, surveyed 500 people from all across the UK planning events in summer to find out what venues should look forward to this summer season. 

Here’s a look at the trends and data we spotted: 

  • Multiple events are on the agenda this summer: 55% are planning 1-2 events, and 40% are planning 3-4 events.
  • Planning starts 3-4 weeks out: with the summer season nearly upon us, we’re in the peak planning period!
  • Demand is high for events outside the home: Brits want to get out of the home for larger events, with 42% of events in a venue having 20-50 guests. 
  • Chasing the rays: Brits remain hopeful that British Summer Time turns it on, with 62% of consumers seeking an outdoor space for their celebrations.
