Northamptonshire is a county in the East Midlands of England. It is landlocked and borders eight other counties: Warwickshire to the west, Leicestershire and Rutland to the north, Cambridgeshire to the east, Bedfordshire to the south-east, Buckinghamshire to the south, Oxfordshire to the south-west along with a tiny 20 yard boundary with Lincolnshire to the north-east.
Historically, Northamptonshire's main industry was manufacturing of boots and shoes. Many of the manufacturers closed down in the Thatcher era which in turn left many county people unemployed. Although R Griggs and Co Ltd, the manufacturer of Dr. Martens, still has its UK base in Wollaston near Wellingborough, the shoe industry in the county is now nearly gone. Large employers include the breakfast cereal manufacturers Weetabix, in Burton Latimer, the Carlsberg brewery in Northampton, Avon Products, Siemens, Barclaycard, Saxby Bros Ltd and Golden Wonder In the west of the county is the Daventry International Railfreight Terminal; which is a major rail freight terminal located on the West Coast Main Line near Rugby. Wellingborough also has a smaller railfreight depot on Finedon Road, called Nelisons sidings.
The M1 passes through the southern part of the county, but there are a good network of roads in the northern half and the towns of Corby, Kettering and Thrapston. We deliver to several other towns in the county including Brackley, Desborough, Higham Ferrers, Irthlingborough, Oundle, Raunds, Rothwell, Rushden and Towcester. Some of the items we deliver include:
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.
We have a great range of chair hire to suit any kind of events you can think of. We can offer everything from designer chairs for expos and special occasions to plastic chairs for outside events with lots in between.
Our conference chairs are designed to be durable enough to be used in all day meetings yet are comfy enough that your delegates won’t be complaining. They can be stacked easily so that they can be rearranged quickly if needed.
We have a range of banqueting chairs to bring a touch of elegance to your wedding or special occasion. With various colour chairs and seat pads always in stock there is sure to be something to match your aesthetic. We also offer elegant Chiavari banqueting chairs, based on the classic Italian design. These chairs are built in a specific way to make them strong enough to last up to a proper feast, yet still have a beautiful style.
If you’re in need of chairs for an outdoor event, then we can help you. These range from standard plastic chairs and garden chairs to rattan sofas and metal bistro chairs. These are all made from materials that can stand the changeable British climate.
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.
