Large Public Event Specialists

Since our inception in 2006, we have provided bars at all size of events. We have been trusted with providing public bars at the annual one day Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show since 2008. We have worked closely with the organisers during this time to give them a hassle free and efficient service for a capacity of 25,000 people. We have also been tasked with providing a bar for the general public whilst still serving the members tent at a different area of the showfield.


Recently we have also been entrusted with providing the beer tent at various music concerts and public fairs and events. One of which is the Buckham Fair in West Dorset. Working alongside the actor Martin Clunes and his committee, we provided all stock, staff and equipment at the sponsors evening on the night prior to the fair and then the only bar at the event which attracts a crowd of 20,000 people annually.

To keep up with the demand and run an efficient service, we have two purpose built mobile event units which we use to dispense products. These mobile cellars are professionally built and kitted out the same as can be seen a fixed cellar. We carry a large selection of spares so that if we do encounter any problems, this can be rectified promptly.

For our smaller events or where space is at a premium, we have a purpose built gazebo with built in bar and brackets to display our extra large bar flags so everyone knows where the bar is. For our larger events, we setup in marquees supplied by the organiser, if this isn't possible, we have contacts to source this on your behalf. We also have wooden counters that can cope with even the busiest of environments. 

If you are an event organiser looking to run a bar yourself or a bar operator requiring extra capacity and equipment, all our equipment is also available to dry hire, including our mobile cellar units.
