Oxford is the county town of Oxfordshire and the only city within that county. The city of Oxford lies on the Rivers Cherwell and Thames and is close to the towns of Abingdon-on-Thames, Didcot and Witney. Oxford has been linked to car production since Morris Motors opened a factory in the city in 1910, with BMW currently manufacturing it's Mini range in the suburb of Cowley. The city is also home to publishers Oxford University Press, along with Wiley-Blackwell and Elsevier and several smaller publishers. The city is home to many old buildings in addition to the University which bears its name, offering many venues for events and occasions.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Oxford. Some of the items we can deliver include:
Patio Heater Hire in Oxford
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 and Chair Hire Oxford
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.
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 Berkshire area – there really isn’t such a thing as a “basic chair”.
Conferences are a good example of this. Conference chair hire needs to not only be durable and stackable so seating configurations can be reset easily, it also needs to be comfortable enough for a delegate to sit in all day without complaint. Our conference chairs for hire meet these specifications perfectly so organisers don’t need to worry.
Banqueting chairs are similar. These have the additional requirement of needing to look pretty too, as they are often for events like weddings and banquets where aesthetics are important. Our range of banqueting chairs for hire are comfy, stackable and gorgeous – and can fit into a tight budget too.
When it comes to outdoor events, being resistant to weather is all important. Our outdoor chairs for hire are designed to be used in all kinds of outdoor settings and can withstand most of what the weather can throw at it. Whether it’s folding chairs for a big outdoor event, or aluminium bistro chairs for a garden party, we have got you covered.
Barbecue Hire in Oxford
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.

Gazebo Hire in Oxford
Rain is both unpredictable and inconsistent. It’s possible to have days of glorious sunshine in Berkshire, Surrey and South Oxfordshire only for the drops to start falling when you have an event. This means it’s often key to have some under cover space at your event – particularly 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 doesn’t want to play ball.
We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events and occasions and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. 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 for them.
The pop up gazebo packages for hire we have are made to commercial specifications and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. While this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is of utmost importance, it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. They are 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.
