Hungerford is a historic market town and civil parish in Berkshire. It lies about eight miles west of Newbury, and nine miles east of Marlborough. The Kennet and Avon Canal passes through the town from the west alongside the River Dun, a major tributary of the River Kennet. The town is the only place in the country to have continuously celebrated Hocktide (the second Tuesday after Easter). In the past thie was a celebration associated with the town's great patron, John of Gaunt. The town crier (or "Bellman") would summon the commoners of the town to the Hocktide Court held at Hungerford Town Hall, while two florally decorated "Tutti Men" and the "Orange Man" visit every house accompanied by six "Tutti Girls" where they would collect money to ensure fishing and grazing rights. In modern times, they largely collect kisses from each lady of the house.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Hungerford. Some of the products we can deliver to you include:
Barbecue Hire in Hungerford
Cooking food outside at a big event or function doesn’t need to be a chore with the right equipment. While a garden party can easily make do with a standard bbq, we know that for our commercial customers, commercial barbecue hire is going to be needed.
The barbecues for hire we have available in stock have been chosen with large outdoor functions in mind and can easily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which among other things features two separate cooking areas, allowing for meat and vegetarian menus to be cooked at the same time without fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going quickly.
Patio Heater Hire in Hungerford
The unpredictability of British weather can make hosting an outdoor event a challenge but you can at least be sure to keep your guests warm with patio heater hire. Event organisers rent patio heaters from us throughout the year so that they are less reliant on good weather. We deliver patio heaters for hire throughout Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and Surrey.
We offer two kinds of outdoor patio heater hire; electric and LPG. Electric patio heaters are great solutions when it’s a specific enclosed space to heat up as they provide a focused heat from their lamp. If it’s an outdoor space then LPG patio heater hire is a much better answer as these produce much more heat in a radial pattern.
We’ve built up a fair old bit of experience in patio heater hire and learning from this we really think we have the best gas patio heaters for hire on the market. They’re all easy to start and are fuel efficient so you get value for money. We also supply 13kg LPG canisters separately so you don’t need to worry about getting hold of fuel.
For very large spaces we recommend our space heaters for hire. These are a much more powerful version of a gas heater and kick off a tremendous amount of heat which can warm up a much larger amount of space.
Table Hire in Hungerford
It’s not hard to rent tables from us, even if you are new to the whole idea of hiring furniture. We’ve done everything we can to make getting tables for hire as simple a process as possible from picking what you need to getting them delivered to your event in Reading, Berkshire and the surrounding area.
Getting the right kind of tables for hire is a simple process. There are three types of table on hire, which match different styles of seating. For bar stools and stand-up type affairs, the tallest kind of table is best. These tables are known as cocktail tables or poseur tables and normally quite small in diameter, helping to maximise space. For relaxed meeting spaces with sofas and armchairs, a coffee table makes a great addition as a space for drinks or promotional material.
Between those we have banqueting tables, which are the main table hire we offer. These too come in different shapes and sizes to help different sized event spaces. Each table product page helpfully lists the number of people which can sit around it, and also has a recommended size of linen to make ordering a doddle.
Fridge Hire in Hungerford
Refrigeration is a necessity if cold drinks or food is being served at your next event or occasion, and sometimes what is already is in place is not sufficient. We work with commercial kitchens as well as with various events throughout Berkshire and Surrey to help with fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges for hire to venues throughout the Thames Valley area, helping to make sure that event organisers have all the fridge space they require.
We offer a huge selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Thames Valley. For example, our upright display fridges are one of our most frequently hired products we have on offer; going out on hire to places as diverse as retailers, exhibitors and event organisers. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are great as an under-counter fridge at bars and the like. For those customers who need more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand that commercial kitchens need space to not only store and chill food but also to prepare food. To help supply this need, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be wheeled quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.
