St Albans is a cathedral city in Hertfordshire. It lies about 8 miles southwest of Welwyn Garden City and about 11 miles south of Luton. It was the first major town on the old Roman road of Watling Street for travellers heading north. Before the 20th century, St Albans awas a rural market town and a Christian pilgrimage site; however it grew rapidly at the end of the 19th century and St Albans was granted city status by Queen Victoria in 1877. The town is now a commuter town for workers employed in London, and is a filming location for various films and TV series.

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout St Albans. Some of what we can deliver is outlined below:
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 hire to get 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.
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.
Chair hire might seem a simple thing to sort out but the truth is there is no such thing as a “simple chair for hire”. We rent chairs to events, functions and companies across Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire in all kinds of scenarios.
Conferences can be very important events for the people involved and the last thing any organiser would want to worry about is poor quality conference chairs. Our conference chairs for hire are designed to be both practical and comfortable to ensure the best possible result.
Our wedding chairs for hire are designed with elegance in mind. We have a range of styles available to meet your individual aesthetic and are stackable to make it easier to store and reset quickly.
Outdoor events can be the hardest of all to deal with. Outdoor chairs for hire need to not only be comfortable but able to handle London weather. Our samsonite folding chairs are great for large events needing hundreds of chairs while more intimate affairs can benefit from our aluminium and rattan ranges.
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.
