For Hire


It's party time! Where's the best place for a party? Alice Park!

We proudly present the best party you've ever been to party! From full-on large-scale company get-togethers and wedding receptions to private BBQ's, 50th's, 40th's and of course kids parties - we have done it all! It's the perfect family outdoor venue; fully licensed for all activities, an enclosed kids play area, and lots of space for sporting games. So what's the deal? Have a look.

Simply pop into the café or email to discuss your requirements, pay the deposit and look forward to the day!

Basic 'Dry' Hire

Ok, so you want to use the park but don't want to carry marquees, tables, chairs etc - so we do all that for you! You get a large marquee with a couple of trestle tables and 10 chairs, and that's your bit of the park secured for the day - It's just past the patio, so you are close enough to get that coffee you so deserve; after all, organising a party is very thirsty work, true?

All-day hire, from 11-4, is just £45. Please note that this does have to be paid in advance, and any bookings are only 'reservations' until paid for (we can't control the weather. And if I did, I wouldn't be doing this for a living now, would I?) Do what you want in there, although there are a couple of rules; firstly, please respect that we have an alcohol licence - a celebration bottle of bubbly is fine but any other alcohol should be bought from us. If you have any particular favourite tipple you want us to get in, then that's fine - however, we always stock Thatcher's Gold, Thatcher's Haze, Stella, Doom Bar, Bierra Moretti, Brewdog punk IPA, Amstel, single-serve wines and prosecco, and gin and tonic: but give us plenty of warning and we'll get in whatever you want!

Second, we don't supply electricity to the marquee, unless of course it is booked, so any entertainment you have bought along must be acoustic. I am allowed to educate clients with soul and reggae music, but nobody else is!

Corporate Parties

In these post-COVID times, everyone needs a little fresh air to boost morale, so why not get down to Alice Park and enjoy a company get-together in the sun?

If you are based in Bath, then there really is no better choice than Alice Park! You’d be in great company too – our clients include LandC Mortgages, Horstmann Controls, Zest Hotels and Royd Withy King; all of whom have used this perfect park for a summer party.

We can cater for up to 600 people and, although numbers over 100 do need some additional considerations, our downloadable Event Management Plan (Coming soon) will guide you! Please note that, depending upon the size of the event, you may need the approval of the Alice Park Trust; however, we can assist you with that too – so there really is no excuse not to brighten everyone’s day and book your summer party here!

Apart from the location, catering and drinks, we can also help with:
Full Alice Park Cafe hire
Kids entertainers
Event Management
Bar hire
and pretty much anything else you can think of

We have a lot of land to work with and space is never a problem, as long as you don't want to land a Boeing in the pond.

We also have many facilities on site such as tennis courts and boules petanque that can be incorporated into your party's activities for the day, so if you have a vision for a large-scale corporate event, come down to the Cafe and have a coffee and a chat,
or email us at and let's make it happen!

Private Self Hire BBQ

We now offer a Dry Hire BBQ option, which is our huge gas BBQ and the marquee for just £125 including gas. Please note that we would like our BBQ back as clean as clean can be if that's ok!

Again, please feel free to decorate the marquee and please request 'the sides' on it if you desire. Usual rules apply, bottle of bubby is fine, but buy your beers from me!

We also expect that you do clear up after yourselves; we can supply you with a couple of black bags for all the rubbish. Please make sure that these are placed by the Recycling Bins by the park gates. Thanks very much. Appreciate it.


Think Alice is the perfect venue for a wedding? Yep, Lovely venue for the big day, so come and enjoy it with us at Alice Park!

Sounds good but can't be bothered? Then let us do the BBQ for you! It's only £12.50 per head for sausage, burger, roll, cheese, salad, coleslaw and chips with a minimum booking of 10 people. plus the marquee hire of £45. Vegetarian options also available, however they are cooked on the same grill. Timed to suit - let us know when you want the food served, and we work backwards from then.
