We're cooking at our garden party - what is the best outdoor hire for catering?

Big outdoor festivals and fayres often feature a barbecue style set up to feed guests quickly and effectively. Although a small garden affair can make do with a standard bbq set, we understand that our commercial customers need more substantial barbecue hire.

The barbecues for hire we have available in stock have been selected with large outdoor events in mind and can easily keep hundreds of guests fed. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard and features two cooking areas which allows for event organisers to have separate menus without worry of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going.

What precautions can we take for our garden party if it rains?

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.

How can I keep guests at my garden party warm?

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 patio heaters for 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.
