Bespoke Dockside Events at Gun Wharf Quays
Finding a unique and memorable venue for your birthday party or corporate event can be challenging given the plethora of restaurants and facilities on offer in Portsmouth. Here at 4charter, we believe we have come up with a great way of hosting an affordable party in a luxurious and picturesque setting – a dockside event on board our beautifully refurbished Thames Sailing Barge, Alice.
Whether you are looking for a meeting room in Gun Wharf Quays or a Christmas party venue with a twist, get in touch with us and begin planning your high class event at a price which will suit you.
On Board Facilities
We will always endeavour to help your birthday party or Christmas do go off with a bang on Alice, which is why our on board facilities are to a very high standard. On deck, there is space for a band or live music act even whilst the deck tent is erected – we find that this is something of a necessity, especially around the Christmas party season! Alternatively, if you are looking to stick to a tight budget, Alice has a fully functioning music system on board which allows you to plug in an iPhone or mp3 player, thus giving you full control of the entertainment.
Additionally, Alice has a fully functional bar located next to the main saloon which is ideally placed for Christmas events. In fact, this can be an added bonus during business meetings too! Breaking up time in the meeting room with a drink and network on deck is a unique opportunity which only Alice can truly offer. Sailing to Cowes, Southampton, Yarmouth, Bucklers Hard or even just a quick jaunt on the Solent are also excellent opportunities to invigorate the minds of colleagues during lengthy corporate meetings.
Catering for Dinner Parties
Alice’s main saloon can comfortably accommodate up to 16 diners for a sit down meal, or alternatively you can choose to go for a buffet meal for a party of 50 plus – ideal for works Christmas parties! While you are more than welcome to choose to make your event self-catering, we highly recommend using the services of one of several outside caterers who know Alice and so can assist you in setting the menu or buffet selection which best suits your needs.
On Board Accommodation
If you do not wish to go straight home after your corporate event or birthday party, Alice can provide on board accommodation for up to 14 people. The cost of this can be incorporated into your package, and we additionally provide a breakfast service upon request – Alice, therefore, is an ideal floating luxury hotel as well as a fabulous party venue!
