Bradford is a city in West Yorkshire, in the foothills of the Pennines about nine miles west of Leeds, and 16 miles northwest of Wakefield. The city forms part of the West Yorkshire Urban Area conurbation which in 2001 had a population of 1.5 million and is the fourth largest urban area in the United Kingdom.
Historically, Bradford was a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire and rose to prominence during the 19th century as an international centre of textile manufacture, particularly wool. It was one of the boomtowns of the Industrial Revolution, rapidly becoming the "wool capital of the world". The area's access to a supply of coal, iron ore and soft water helped to ensure the growth of Bradford's manufacturing base, which led to an explosion in population and was a stimulus to civic investment; Bradford has a large amount of listed Victorian architecture including the grand Italianate City Hall.
The textile sector in Bradford fell into decline from the mid-20th century. Since this time, Bradford has emerged as a tourist destination, becoming the first UNESCO City of Film with attractions such as the National Media Museum, Bradford City Park, the Alhambra theatre and Cartwright Hall. However, Bradford has faced similar challenges to the rest of the post-industrial area of Northern England, including deindustrialisation, social unrest and economic deprivation.
However, it's not as grim up north as some would have you believe. Our drivers are out in Bradford often, delivering to events, parties and weddings full of joy and celebration. Some of the products we deliver include:
Gazebo Hire in Bradford
Outdoor events are great fun when the weather decides to play ball, but we all now how quickly the Yorkshire climate can turn and rain arrive. This means having some space undercover can be almost essential, particularly if you’re the one who has to stand in the rain all day. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help ensure your event can be successful even if the weather is inconsistently good.
We have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones, helping you to make the most of the footprint you have available for your event. All of our gazebos come complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories.
Our pop up gazebo packages for hire are made specifically with commercial customers in mind. They have durable coverings and sturdy poles, and while this means that they’re not suitable for formal events where presentation is all, it also means that they’re not cheap and flimsy. They’re also incredibly easy to erect – simply telescope the frame apart until it reaches full size, extend the legs and then put the cover on top.
Fridge Hire in Bradford
Fridges are one of those products that are popular regardless of the time of year. While many people associate fridges for hire with outdoor events or big occasions like weddings, we also work with commercial kitchens throughout Leeds, Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Our expert drivers deliver fridge hire across Yorkshire, helping to ensure that event organisers can quickly set up without worry.
We offer various kinds of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Yorkshire. Our upright display fridges are our standard fridge for rent, and are hired by everyone from retailers at exhibitions to event hosts offering chilled drinks. We also offer double door bottle coolers which fit under counters and are great for bars. For those looking for something a bit more specialist we have wine fridges, counter top fridges and chilled drink dispensers.
Commercial kitchens need plenty of space to not only store food but also to prepare it. Our counter fridges with integrated work space are designed for this, and can be wheeled quickly into position ready for use before a busy day. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed if there are large amounts of food to be chilled.
Linen Hire in Bradford
For big events like wedding receptions and banquets, linen hire is almost a prerequisite. Not only will it cover plain wooden banqueting tables, but it is possible to rent linen in all kinds of colours to match themes and aesthetics.
We offer a wide range of linen in various sizes, to ensure you can find what you need to match your table. While it can feel difficult to know which linen to match to which table, we’ve done everything we can to make your linen hire experience as good as it can be.
Each piece of linen has its own product page, and on that page you will see details of what size table it will fit to help you ensure you choose the right one. You can also check our tables in our furniture catalogue for suggested linen sizes there.
Patio Heater Hire in Bradford
Whether it’s a summer evening or a brisk spring day, keeping guests warm at an outdoor event can be challenging. We deliver patio heater hire to venues throughout Yorkshire to help solve this problem and to ensure your guests remain toasty.
There are two kinds of outdoor patio heater hire available, which are LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters run off a plug (as you might expect) and are best at heating specific enclosed areas as the heat they generate is focused. In contrast, LPG patio heater hire is designed with open spaces in mind as they radiate heat outwards in all directions.
Our experience with patio heater hire has helped us to source the absolute best models available. All of our outdoor gas heaters for hire are easy to start, reliable and are fuel efficient. We also supply 13kg LPG canisters separately so you don’t have to worry about where you will get your fuel from.
If it’s a huge space you have to keep warm then our space heaters for hire are what you need. These are more industrial and noisier than a standard patio heater, but they give off immensely powerful levels of heat, enabling you to warm large areas of space.
