Oxfordshire is a county in South East England bordering on Warwickshire (to the north/north-west), Northamptonshire (to the north/north-east), Buckinghamshire (to the east), Berkshire (to the south), Wiltshire (to the south-west) and Gloucestershire (to the west).
The county has large education and tourism industries and is noted for the concentrations of motorsport car manufacturing and technology companies. The University of Oxford is widely recognised as one of the leading universities in the world, and has a historic reputation for producing brilliant minds that move into all fields of human life. Oxfordshire is more than just the dreaming spires of the University; Blenheim Palace is considered one of the best stately homes to visit in the UK and is just one of a large number of listed buildings within the county.
This area is served by more than one of our website branches, depending on the exact postcode of the venue we are to deliver to.

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Oxfordshire. Some of what we deliver is outlined below:
Exhibition Hire in Oxfordshire
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.
Patio Heater Hire in Oxfordshire
One of the big challenges event organisers face with outdoor events is keeping guests warm, particularly thanks to the unpredictability of the British climate. We deliver patio heaters for hire throughout Luton and the surrounding area, providing a heating solution that doesn’t break the bank.
We offer two kinds of outdoor 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 know that it’s important to have the best outdoor heaters for hire available and we have specifically gone out and sourced the best models; all of which are easy to start, reliable and fuel efficient. We also supply 13kg LPG canisters separately so that you don’t have to worry about where you will get your fuel from.
If the space you have to heat is huge then our space heaters for hire might be a better solution. These are more industrial and noisier than a standard patio heater, but they give off an immense amount of heat which will heat a much larger area.
Linen Hire in Oxfordshire
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.
Gazebo Hire in Oxfordshire
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.
Oven Hire in Oxfordshire
Getting a kitchen right for a big event or occasion is all about ensuring the right catering equipment hire is ordered. One of the most important decisions to make is what kind of oven to hire as the wrong choice can prove costly and potentially even sabotage the day.
At Expo Hire Chiltern we stock both LPG and electric ovens for hire; knowing the right one to choose depends on the context there are being used in. Electric ovens for hire are the correct choice for events and kitchens which are indoors, where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food. However, because these ovens draw large amounts of power they’re not suitable for use at outdoor occasions. The wattage required by these ovens is too much for exterior power supplies such as generators and extension leads and they will trip out easily while using them. LPG ovens like our six burner oven are what is needed outdoors, as they use LPG bottles to fuel the powerful burners without a problem.
The quality of our stock has always been important to us and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is especially important with ovens which are often the workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.
