Nottingham is a beautiful city that demands courage from anyone looking to enjoy its outdoors. Residents and frequent visitors expect significant rainfall all year round. The weather discourages most types of outdoor merrymaking.

We bring hope for all Nottingham celebrants looking to throw a big party outdoors with family and friends.

In other to make an outdoor party work, your venue should have an indoor space for the party, so you can wait out the rain until it slows enough to take advantage for a few minutes while the clouds rest, or a large atrium where you can enjoy the best of both worlds, dining and dancing under the clouds without getting your clothes wet.

To help make your party planning easier, we scoured through all of Nottingham’s city side and found you 3 great options for outdoor party venues in Nottingham for a small, medium or large party size.
