Our Story

 

Garden Party Hire developed (unintentionally) nearly 20 years ago from scratch, from the home of our directors. 

Starting with just two marquees and a very limited number of tables and chairs. 

The demand was there for garden parties as larger companies weren’t interested in “back garden work” and intentionally overpriced it.

We worked hard, long hours to a create memorable bespoke events for our clients and a reputable business brand to go alongside it.

Corporate clients were looking to save money and receive attention to detail so contacted us. The natural progression for the business lead to us transitioning to working with corporate clients. A transition which we actually found simple just by replicating our same attention to detail and providing the fantastic customer service that we do for all our clients.

Importantly for our corporate clients not only did we save them money, but we massively improved the standard of their event. One client had been paying £14k for a single stage unit, our charge was less than 20% of that for like for like.

Corporate work now makes up in excess of 60%+ of our business, much of that is happily regular repeat business from large International Blue-Chip Companies

We now get a respectful nod from other companies in the industry and have grown our business significantly since we first started. As a result, we’ve now trademarked our company name to give our brand the protection it needs and deserves but also to allow us to develop and grow as a company on a national basis.

Our client list reads rather impressively often involving repeat work form HRH’s “A” list celebrities, Billionaires, Embassies and even being involved in several stadium concerts. 

Suffice to say that we’re now doing quietly very well as a Brand and Company, with a recent move to new premises some five times larger, we’re now ready to let people know what we’ve been up to!

We’re still a family-owned business, still providing high attention to detail for every job, still keeping things simple but doing them rather well.

The secret of our success is honesty and concentration on every client’s requirement is what counts.

Good old fashioned customer service never went out of fashion!
