Portchester is a locality within the borough of Fareham, Hampshire. It lies about four miles north of Portsmouth and is a busy part of the expanding conurbation stretching between Portsmouth and Southampton along the A27. The Roman fort of Portus Adurni has been excavated within the area, and is the best-preserved Roman fort north of the Alps. Portchester Castle was built on the site in around the 11th century and was captured by the French in 1216 before being permanently returned to English control shortly after. It is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building, and is managed by English Heritage.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Portchester. Some of the items we can deliver include:
Gazebo Hire to Portchester
When holding an outdoor event the last thing you want to be thinking about is if the weather is going to ruin it. This means having space under cover is often a necessity – especially if it’s you who is going to be spending the day subject to the elements. 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 outdoor events across Southampton, Hampshire and the New Forest and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent are complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them when ordering.
Our pop up gazebo packages for hire are made for commercial customers and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. This means that the gazebos we offer are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key, but it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy either. The gazebos we offer 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.
Fridge Hire to Portchester
Keeping drinks and food chilled does not need to be a difficult or expensive proposition. We work with a variety of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout Southampton and Hampshire to help them with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues in the south coast region, helping to make sure that drinks and food are kept cold at events throughout the year.
We offer a wide selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Solent. For example, our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired products we have, going out on hire to a variety of places from retailers to small functions. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are often used as an under-counter fridge by pop-up bars. For those who require more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand from experience that commercial kitchens need space to chill and prepare food. To meet this demand, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved 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.
Table Hire to Portchester
It’s not hard to rent tables from us for your next event in Southampton 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.
Getting the right kind of furniture 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.
In the middle of these is the most common type of table we hire out, banqueting tables or trestle tables. These are used for any occasion where people sit and eat, like a wedding reception or banquet. They come in different shapes and sizes to match different sizes of rooms – but choosing the right one isn’t hard as we list on each product page how many people can sit around each table and which linen is best used with it.
Oven Hire to Portchester
Setting up any kind of kitchen requires some careful choices to make sure equipment is not only right for the food to be cooked but also for the setting it is being used in. Oven hire is one of the bigger components of any kitchen and getting that wrong can be an expensive mistake.
At Expo Hire London we offer the choice of both LPG and electric ovens for hire; each of which are designed for different usage. Electric ovens for hire are for indoor areas where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food easily. However, because electric ovens need lots of power to run they cannot be used outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens can easily trip temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads. The portability of LPG bottles make LPG ovens the perfect choice for usage outside; even an oven with powerful burners like our six burner oven can happily run off an LPG bottle. However, LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the potential lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.
Offering high quality stock has always been something that we pride ourselves upon and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is particularly important with ovens which are often the main workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.
