Roll out the red carpet for VIP events!

October 11, 2021

Roll out the red carpet for VIP events!

Glitz and glamour is often required for temporary events.  Think of film premieres in the West End of London, all the way through to an awards ceremony or even a fashion show - a red carpet entrance is synonymous with a VIP style event, and what's not to love about feeling special at an event.

Red carpet hire for events

Red carpets, though, don't have to be saved for celebrity events only.  We ALL like to feel special when we go to an event, and there's nothing stopping you, as an event planner, from rolling out the red carpet at the entrance to YOUR event to make that all-important first impression.

Why not even go all the way and have a photographer on hand to snap away and get pictures of your guests in their finest attire, and present this to them at the end of the night as a freebie, and a thank you for attending your event.  Alternatively, for charity and fundraising events, for example, you could use these photos to raise your valuable funds during the evening.

Red carpet hire is available at Event Hire UK, as you would expect it to be!  At the same time, to complete the look, you can also hire posts and ropes, which are also always a popular favourite with clients.

Event post and rope hire

Posts and ropes are a type of temporary event barrier.  They are not crowd control barriers - and are not designed to be so - but more so 'barriers' to help guide people to where they need to be.  They are more to do with achieving a certain look at an event rather than being functional.  

The posts are available in both polished chrome and gold.  The velvet style ropes are available in a range of different colours including red, blue and black, and so this allows you to match up the colour of your ropes to a certain brand colour, for example, at corporate events.  For the purposes of a red carpet event, however, the majority of people would choose the matching red rope.

And it's important to note that not every event hire company in the land will offer gold posts as an alternative to the more standard chrome posts.  The gold posts from Event Hire UK certainly have their niche in the market and are ideal for those event planners looking to create luxury events, where no detail is forgotten!  

It's also important to note that the clips on the ends of the ropes differ according to whether to you choose chrome posts or gold posts.  Obviously, attaching a rope with a gold end to a chrome post won't look right, and vice versa, of course.  That's why on our website you will see the selection of ropes available with different coloured ends - chrome and gold - so take your pick accordingly.

If you are planning a society ball, school prom, gala dinner, awards ceremony or simply a 50th birthday party at the local pub, and you want to make your guests feel special, don't forget to check out our range of posts and ropes along with our red carpet.  For an affordable price, you can create a wonderful entrance area which really does set the right tone for the evening.

Don't hesitate to browse and place your secure order online 24/7, safe in the knowledge that you are putting your faith in the hands of the experts!
