Hertfordshire (often abbreviated Herts) is one of the home counties in southern England. It borders Bedfordshire and Cambridgshire to the north, Essex to the east, Greater London to the south and Buckinghamshire to the west. The county is home to two "garden cities", Letchworth and Welwyn Garden City, while Stevenage was the first town to expand under the post-war New Towns Act of 1946.
The county hosts the head office or operational headquarters for a number of large employers. These include MBDA and Airbus (Defence and Space Division) in Stevenage, Tesco in Welwyn Garden City and Dixons Carphone in Hemel Hempstead. Hertfordshire is also home to a number of notable visitor attractions including Hatfield House, the Henry Moore Foundation sculpture park in Much Hadham, and Knebworth House.

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Hertfordshire. Some of what we deliver is listed below:
Exhibition Hire in Hertfordshire
Exhibition hire is one of the cornerstones of what we do. Whether it’s a huge conference, exhibition or a small trade show at a local venue, we can help you make a great first impression with potential suppliers, customers and partners.
Take our display cabinets for hire as an example. These pieces of exhibition furniture for hire are extremely popular, as they are a great way to showcase products and services. Equipped with LED lights to properly light your offering, these cabinets come in various configurations to help fit your stand. There are even cabinets with lockable storage spaces available for those who are selling products on the day.
Seating options are also important. We understand that there can be massively varying requirements dependent on space and budget and we’ve built an exhibition furniture hire offering to match. If your space or budget has little room for manoeuvre then our poseur tables and bar stools make for a great contemporary meeting space; for those with more wiggle room then we have everything up to Chesterfield sofas in bright colours to match your stand aesthetic.
Gazebo Hire in Hertfordshire
Spring fayres, summer fetes and autumn festivals can all be great events when the weather plays ball – but we all know how inconsistent sunny days can be in Luton. This means for an outdoor event it’s almost imperative to have space that is undercover, particularly for those at an event where they’re spending the whole day outside. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help ensure your event can be successful even if the weather decides to play up.
We cater to all kinds of events and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones to match up to the footprint you have available. All of our pop up gazebos for rent 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 designed specifically with our commercial customers in mind. The gazebos all have durable coverings and sturdy poles, and while this means that they’re not really suitable for formal events where presentation comes first, it also means that our gazebos are 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.
Table Hire in Hertfordshire
It’s not hard to rent tables from us for your next event in Milton Keynes or the surrounding area. We’ve got a huge range of tables for hire which are suitable for all kinds of occasion, whether it’s an informal meeting space or a big banquet.
The key to understanding table hire is knowing what height of table is needed. A glimpse through our furniture hire catalogue will help you choose. For guests who are relaxing in sofas and armchairs, our range of coffee table hire is perfect for drinks and promotional material. If it’s bar stools in a contemporary stand up style affair, then cocktail or poseur tables are the right height.
The most common tables we hire out are banqueting tables, which are also known as trestle tables. These tables are designed with sitting and eating in mind and come in different shapes and sizes to match different event spaces. Each of our table product pages helpfully lists how many people can fit around it and has a recommended size of linen suggested to help with draping.
Linen Hire in Hertfordshire
Linen hire is probably the most important aspect of any event when it comes to aesthetics. Most people rent linen to dress tables for big events like weddings and banquets; however any occasion where banqueting tables will be used will almost certainly require the use of linen.
Getting the sizing right is probably the trickiest part of hiring linen, particularly if a customer has never done it before. We’ve used our experiences to help make this a painless process as possible.
Every linen product page has details on it with what table the linen is most suitable for. We’ve also added linen recommendations to all of our banqueting table pages so you can work out from there which linen you need to hire to get the best result.
Barbecue Hire in Hertfordshire
Big outdoor festivals and fayres often feature a barbecue style set up to feed guests quickly and effectively. Although a small garden affair can make do with a standard bbq set, we understand that our commercial customers need more substantial barbecue hire.
The barbecues for hire we have available in stock have been selected with large outdoor events in mind and can easily keep hundreds of guests fed. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard and features two cooking areas which allows for event organisers to have separate menus without worry of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going.
