Glastonbury Kitchen Equipment

It was great to see all our friends again at Red Gate, Picton, Glastonbury. We chose a Sunday to deliver the first loads of catering equipment in the hope that we could get in efficiently. The mandatory H&S induction is always handy to reinforce the onsite rules at Glastonbury for our drivers, new and old. This year we have hired a WKTS Winterhalter Rack conveyor set up within a 4.5m pre-wash and exit table. Included in the set up is a chemical dosing unit and a Winterhalter twin chamber water softner. Other equipment hired to Glastonbury are gas ovens, water heaters, fryers, Rational ovens, pre tables, generators, etc,

Beer Festival Table and Bench Hire

Weatherproof Bavarian Oktoberfest beer bench hire and beer table hire may be an inexpensive great value solution to seating outside events. These tables are made of Ash wood and coated with a polyurethane coating giving the table a classy look without the usual staining you get from untreated tables. These are NOT the cheap tables offered on EBay which collapse on first use, (we bought one to trial) these are a heavy duty solution and great value. These seats can seat 4 -5 people and the tables can accommodate 8 - 10 people. No need for table cloths, wipe clean surfaces. We hold enough stock to seat 1,000 people at any one event.

Temporary Event Power Hire - 600 guests

The end of May Bank Holiday was exceptionally busy for us supporting a number of the 1,300 events running this weekend. This event we provided rigging temporary event power and generated power to a number of catering stalls that were providing food for 600 or more guests. We picked an Ultra Silent 40kva for this event as it would be running close to Radio Alice suppling their 20kW electric pizza oven which arrived from Italy the night before. The close proxcimity and the 600 guests required the generator to be Ultra Silent, and smokeless.

Manchester Bombing - Generator Delivered Satellite Outside Broadcast

When a Wimbledon based Satellite Outside Broadcast needed an Ultra Silent Generator to keep their outside broadcast running providing the world with live news of this dreadful atrocity, our generator hire department were able to dispatch a Honda Ultra Silent 70is generator immediately to the area surrounding the Manchester Arena.

Our hearts go out to the parents and families of children and others senselessly murdered or maimed by these crazy extremists.

2016 Ford Ranger Breakdown Puts Events in Jeopardy

On Wednesday our postman reported liquid dripping from the underside of our 2016 Ford Ranger 3.2. The AA was called by Ford Assist, the AA patrol man confirmed a water leak and arranged a flat bed to take the Ford Ranger 3.2 Limited Edition (2016) to Think Ford Farnborough Hampshire GU14 7QW. Enterprise Rent a Car from Grayswood Haslemere delivered a Ford Focus loan car efficiently within 90 minutes. The loan car was a part of the deal when we purchased the Ford Ranger if it ever broke down.

X Factor Auditions at The 02

Pleased to be of assistance again for the guys on X Factor. Memories go back to the begining of our event services when we suplied Event Services at Nigel Wright's 50th birthday party, met most of the guys involved including Will Young. I recall working with Natalija one of the FOH girls who was flabbergasted to see so many celebrities at the party, when the week before they were all on her TV. "Face the front , be professional, and don't ask for any autographs" I said.
