Leicestershire is a landlocked county in the English Midlands. It takes its name from the City of Leicester, traditionally its administrative centre, although the City of Leicester unitary authority is today administered separately from the rest of Leicestershire. The county borders Nottinghamshire to the north, Lincolnshire to the north-east, Rutland to the east, Northamptonshire to the south-east, Warwickshire to the south-west, Staffordshire to the west, and Derbyshire to the north-west.
Engineering has long been a part of the economy of Leicestershire. Today there are sports car manufacturers Ultima Sports Ltd and Triumph Motorcycles based in Hinckley, along with Infotec in Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Brush Traction in Loughborough. There are also strong links between engineering companies and the three universities in the county, Leicester University, De Montford University and Loughborough University.

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Leicestershire. Some of the items we deliver include:
Exhibition Hire in Leicestershire
Exhibitions tend to be one of the biggest events on a company’s calendar regardless whether it’s a big expo at the Motorpoint Arena or a local trade show. It’s a chance to meet potential suppliers, partners or customers in a commercial environment and good first impressions are vital. Getting the right exhibition hire is important to ensure your stand looks the best it can.
Selling your products at an important show? Having them displayed in the best way possible is vital and our display cabinets for hire are perfect for the job. We have sizes from a simple counter top case to huge wide and tall units, with and without lockable storage areas. All display cabinets are fitted with LED lights to help ensure your products and services are shown in the best light possible.
Exhibitions are also important spaces to meet with potential suppliers, partners and customers. Whether is an informal chat in sofas around a coffee table, or a standup meeting at a poseur table in a tight space, we can help you with all of your exhibition furniture hire needs.
Gazebo Hire in Leicestershire
Holding an outdoor event in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire can be a fun experience when the sun is shining. However, we all know how the weather can change very quickly and sometimes it’s necessary to have some space under cover – especially if you’re the one spending all day outside. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather is less than great.
We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock to match up to the covered space you need. 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.
The pop up gazebo packages for hire we offer are designed with commercial specifications in mind. They all come with durable coverings and sturdy poles, and while this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. Our gazebos 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
Patio Heater Hire in Leicestershire
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 the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire areas.
We offer two kinds of outdoor patio heater hire, which are LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters give off a focused beam of heat which means that they are best used for specific enclosed areas. They need a normal power outlet to plug into as well. For outdoor spaces, gas patio heater hire is far better. These radiate heat outwards in all directions, making them perfect for a proper outdoor function.
We’ve built up a fair amount of knowledge from hiring out patio heaters, which has helped us to source the best ones possible for you. All of our outdoor gas patio heaters for hire are easy to start, are reliable and fuel efficient. We also supply 13kg LPG bottles separately so you don’t need to worry about where to get one from.
If your space is huge then a space heater for hire might be a better option. These are more industrial in both power and volume, and kick off a tremendous amount of heat to warm up the largest of spaces.
Barbecue Hire in Leicestershire
The smell of food cooking at an open air event is enough to make most people salivate at the thought of tasty food. Although a private party can easily make do with a small bbq, we understand from experience that our commercial customers need commercial barbecue hire.
The barbecues for hire we stock are chosen with large outdoor events in mind and can easily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard and features two separate cooking areas which allows for differing menus 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.
Chair Hire in Leicestershire
When looking for chair hire, it’s important to take into consideration the kind of chairs for hire needed. We rent chairs of all types to all kinds of events in the East Midlands area – there really isn’t such a thing as a “basic chair”.
Take conferences as an example. A conference can be a really important event for the organiser to get right, so the chairs that delegates sit in need to be perfect. Our conference chairs for hire are not only stackable and durable, but also comfy – something that guests will appreciate when they’re using them all day.
Banquets, weddings, and functions also need the right kind of chairs. Our banqueting chairs for hire are perfect for this kind of events and come in several styles to match any aesthetic. Our banqueting chairs are designed to be stackable so that they can be stored easily before and after an event, and seating configurations can be reset with ease.
Outdoor events require chairs that can withstand the great British climate, and our outdoor chairs for hire meet those expectations and then some. From folding samsonite chairs and aluminium bistro chairs to comfy rattan sofas we’re bound to have what you need.
