In a small West Country village thousands of people gathered over the bank holiday weekend to take part in the Westpoint 2013 festival that brought music, activities, worship and thousands of our white folding fan back chairs to the sunny English countryside.
Bumper chair hire order
Launched on the Thursday before the long weekend, the festival saw church members from across the UK travel to the West Country and get involved in a packed programme of events, with 4,300, of our folding chairs, blue polyprop chairs and banqueting tables also putting in an appearance. This is the fourth time the occasion has been organised in its West Country location and we recently spoke to event manager Sam to see how our furniture hire service formed part of the very successful festival. Originally the event was located in the New Forest but an influx of visitors to the yearly celebrations meant a bigger site would suit it much better, which also meant that more chair hire was required!
Sam revealed that this year saw an amazing 3,500 people attend the festival, with our hire chairs giving them somewhere comfortable to sit so they could join in with the activities. People of all ages were invited to come and camp on the site or arrive as a day visitor, with the younger, teen and adult guests all extremely well catered for. Amid the glorious weather that bathed the site in sunshine, children, teenagers and older visitors could get involved with many different activities, from volleyball, to parkour, zumba circus skills and quiz nights. Fresh food was on offer as barbecues sizzled and market stalls were stocked with all kinds of practical and tasty treats.
As well as lots of sporting and physical activities, visitors also got the chance to attend talks, musical performances and seminars to build on their religious knowledge. We’re delighted that our furniture hire service proved so useful to our client. Sam remarked that he was “very impressed” with our products and delivery. Because we have several large warehouses in both the north and south of England we were able to easily meet the furniture hire requirements of our client, which included 3,600 white folding chairs, 700 blue polyprop chairs and 45 rectangular banqueting tables.
We’re proud to see our client’s photos showing so many of our hire chairs gathered in one location. One of the images here shows 2,200 of our white folding chairs in the venue’s main arena, which saw lots of musical performances as well as international speakers taking to the stage. Our white chairs and blue polyprop models were also used throughout the rest of the site, including the auditorium, seminar tents and children’s venues, showing how versatile they can be, as well as easy to install! We’re happy to report that our client thought highly of our products and service, saying: “The chairs were great - I’m very, happy. You guys as a company were amazing. We’re definitely interested in working with you again next year”.
Problem-free nationwide delivery

We’re glad to report that even though over 4,300 chairs were transported to and from the destination in a short space of time there were no problems with the nationwide delivery. Our past experience of supplying thousands and thousands of chairs, tables and other furniture hire items to large venues means we know how to quickly and smoothly transport big deliveries across the UK. We’re so pleased the event was a success for all concerned - and are already looking forward to next year, let’s hope the sun shines again!
