Derbyshire is a county in the East Midlands of England. A large portion of the Peak District National Park is within the county's borders, containing the southern extremity of the Pennine range of hills. The county borders Greater Manchester to the north-west, West Yorkshire to the north, South Yorkshire to the north-east, Nottinghamshire to the east, Leicestershire to the south-east, along with Staffordshire and Cheshire to the West. The county town of Derbyshire is Derby.
Derbyshire has a mixed economy. In the west of the county the economy is mostly rural, while the north-east part of the county around Chesterfield and Bolsover, the Erewash valley around Ilkeston and the south around Swadlincote had economies based upon coal mining in the past. The Peak District attracts many tourists to the region, with towns like Bakewell, Matlock and Eyam all having an influx of visitors in the warmer months enjoying the picturesque countryside.
The southern part of the county is more built up around Derby, especially in the area between Derby and Nottingham with towns like Long Eaton growing in the commuter area. We deliver throughout the county of Derbyshire including to Belper, Buxton, Dronfield, Eckington, Glossop, Heanor, Ripley and Staveley. Some of the items we deliver include:
Weddings are meant to be the most joyous occasion in a couple’s life. They are supposed to be remembered for the right reasons. The beautiful bride, the good-looking groom, the beautiful setting and the delicious food. The absolute last thing we want to happen is for a wedding to be ruined by ripped table linen, dirty plates or there not being enough glasses to go around.
At a time where it’s common for people to want to take control of their wedding planning and costs, our aim is to offer customers a one-stop shop for everything from crockery to linen, and cutlery to furniture. We show all our prices online, so that it’s possible to see how much the wedding hire you need will cost without having to go backwards and forwards getting quotes.
The simple cup, plate and bowl are among some of the items that we hire out most at Midland Catering and Event Hire. They’re not the most glamourous of items we stock but they’re an important part of many kinds of events and occasions.
We stock crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match different styles of occasions and different themes. Just as importantly, we have built up a large quantity of stock in availability to ensure we can meet demands for even the biggest events and wedding without a struggle. We do recommend that for bigger events that you order with plenty of notice to ensure it can be picked in time.
If washing up isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means all you have to do after your event is to scrape the crockery clean of any food items, put them back into the packing crates that they were delivered in and we will do the rest back at the warehouse while you relax.
Linen is an integral part of the setting for many different kinds of events. We stock linen in a wide variety of colours, shapes and sizes to help you to find what you need.
We offer linen in a range of different colours. It might be that you want a tablecloth so your tables match a particular aesthetic, or that you want to use table runners to just add a detail of colour to your table. We have stock available to help work with either kind of idea.
Because banqueting tables come in different shapes and sizes, so does our linen. We offer linen to fit all standard sizes of dining tables, and our team can help advise on what size you need depending on how much “drape” you want surrounding the tables.
