Festivals and Fetes

If you're looking for the very best in festival hire and fete hire, Expo Hire can help you with all you might need

It's a classic idyllic British scene - the summer fete. Bunting, stalls selling arts and crafts, barbecues and pig roasts - when the weather plays ball it's hard to beat. We're proud to be able to offer a first-class service for everyone from stallholders to event organisers.

Whether you need a barbecue for your burgers or a gazebo for your golf day, we’ve got a massive range of outdoor furniture hire permanently in stock. We’ve got experience in supplying festivals, fetes and fairs up and down the country and can work with you to bring your event to life.

What kinds of festival outdoor hire are available?

Gazebos are probably one of the most obvious sites at any summer fete or fair. Easy to erect and simple to take back down, gazebos offer a bit of shelter against the ever-changeable British climate whether it be scorching sun or summer showers.

Our range includes two different sizes of gazebo, allowing you to pick the size you need for your stall. Built to a commercial standard, our gazebos are supplied with accessories such as sidewalls and weights, allowing you to customise and secure your gazebo as you see fit. There are also gazebo specific lights and heaters available to ensure your gazebo has all the creature comforts it needs.

If the sun is likely to be a problem then our commercial standard parasols for hire are excellent for creating shady spots. These are supplied with bases and are a huge 2.5m in diameter. Alternatively if it's heat you need, then our lpg patio heaters for hire are designed for heating outside areas efficiently.

How can Expo Hire help with festival catering hire?

Streetdoor and outdoor food at festivals is more than than an additional service; indeed, outdoor food festivals have become very much in vogue with attendees searching for the latest and greatest thing to eat. Our outdoor catering equipment range is second to none and will have you cooking up a storm in no time.

Our LPG ovens for hire are perfect for almost any kind of outdoor cooking. With six powerful burners on top and a great oven underneath, this piece of kit can be the workhorse of any outdoor kitchen. If it's a barbecue you're after then our Cinders bbqs are industry standard and can feed a whopping 200 people easily with two separate cooking areas. If it's a fryer you need, then our LPG fryer has a huge 20L capacity and offers a powerful solution which is perfect for streetfood stalls.

Keeping things clean doesn't need to be hard either. Our double sinks for hire are great to ensure pots, pans and dishes are clean while our mobile handwash unit makes it easy to keep things sanitary.

What furniture for hire is suitable for festivals and fetes

Outddoor furniture is becoming an increasingly big part of festivals and fetes, with many people wanting somewhere comfortable to sit while eating and drinking. With the unpredictable nature of the British climate to take into account, any outdoor furniture for hire has to not only be comfy but durable.

Our folding beer bench and table sets are a superb piece of furniture for any outdoor festival. Easy to move and set up, our bar bench sets are great for creating large seating areas very quickly. They are made from treated wood which is able to withstand rain easily, and have strong folding legs for sturdiness. Our beer bench sets are wider and longer than many out in the market, and our benches have three folding legs to make them stronger.

We also can supply aluminium tables and chairs which are perfect for smaller groups to sit around, as well as samsonite folding chairs if a basic option is needed for seating.
