The 2018 Show looks all set to be one of the best events ever, with a record number of trade exhibitors, a great range of attractions for all the family and entries for the competitive classes being received at a record rate.

Some of the products we can deliver include

Cutlery Hire

Knives, forks and spoons are among the cheapest of all the items we offer at Avon Catering and Event Hire. However, while they’re not the biggest things we hire, they’re an integral part of our business and the journey we have undertaken. With five different ranges of cutlery always in stock we have literally thousands of pieces of cutlery always ready for hire.

Cutlery isn’t just about forks and spoons though. We offer speciality knives and pieces of cutlery equipment to make serving at your event or special occasion easier. Whether you’re cutting cheese, meat or even a wedding cake, we’ve got the knife you need for the job.

If washing up worries you, then help is at hand. Our “send it back dirty service” means you can scrape your cutlery of any food debris, put it back in the packing crates and leave it for us to handle back at our warehouse. It certainly beats washing spoons up until the early hours of the morning!
