Wantage is a historic market town in the county of Oxfordshire, although it was part of Berkshire historically. The town lies about 8 miles southwest of Abingdon-on-Thames, 15 miles southwest of Oxford and 24 miles northwest of Reading. The town was birthplace of King Alfred the Great in 849, and it is mentioned in Domesday Book as being in the King's ownership. Wantage has had a market charter since 1246, and markets are held twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The local Chamber of Commerce spent the early part of the 2000s trying to bring new business into Wantage to prevent it becoming a commuter town.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Wantage. Some of the items we deliver include:
Oven Hire in Wantage
Getting a temporary or commercial kitchen set up on a budget can be a difficult thing to do, particularly if a customer has not had to hire equipment before. Oven hire is one of the bigger components of any kitchen and getting it right is important.
At Expo Hire Thames Valley we offer a choice of both LPG and electric ovens for hire; deciding which is the right one to order depends on the situation it is being hired into. Electric ovens for hire are for indoor kitchen areas where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food with ease. However, because electric ovens need lots of power they cannot be used outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens to run is too much for temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads and these will trip out when used with an electric oven. The correct choice for outdoor kitchens are LPG ovens like our six burner oven as they use LPG bottles to fuel the oven’s powerful burners. However, LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the potential lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.
Hiring out 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.
Patio Heater Hire in Wantage
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 Hire in Wantage
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.

Gazebo Hire in Wantage
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.
