This Christmas, The Table Café on Southwark Street in London will be utilising one of Allspan’s versatile event structures as a temporary extension to their Café during this busy festive season. The Table is a thriving café by day and a social hub by night, offering an array of “simple food with flair.”
This small independently owned establishment is nestled among some of the capital’s most significant landmarks and sits comfortably amongst its Bankside neighbours.
It has become a popular hot spot for local residents, tourists and businesses, particularly during this festive period. Consequently, The Table has prepared for a busy season of Christmas parties and celebrations by enlisting the temporary structure hire services of Allspan.
Allspan has installed a 4.5m wide x 15m event structure with a solid cassette floor, a mixture of glass and cassette walling and flat interior roof and wall linings. The event structure sits in the Table Cafe’s outside terrace area and provides a temporary extension to the main restaurant. The ‘Christmas Marquee’ offers additional seating, for up to 60 guests to celebrate the season in style.
The temporary structure can be booked in advance, as this London party venue is offering a Christmas Breakfast, as well as the traditional evening Christmas Party menu. That’s right, for £20pp, you can have a slap-up Christmas party at breakfast time; Porridge, Pigs in Blanket Sandwiches and Pancakes Stacks are among the range of items on the morning menu, along with a warm welcome drink.
This novel idea is certainly a crowd puller for those looking to make a full day of partying!
Allspan’s Temporary Extension Services
The Table Café is one of many party-venues utilising Allspan’s long term temporary structure hire in London this season.
Each year, companies and social groups embark on the search for that unique party venue to enjoy with friends, family and colleagues at Christmas. To keep up with demand and accommodate a larger number of guests, more and more independent establishments, like The Table Café, are looking for a temporary extension to their permanent building.
Fortunately for The Table Café, their terrace area presented the ideal space for installing a structure that is large enough to seat a significant number for a sit-down meal.
As is the case, with all Allspan temporary structure hires, The Table Café Christmas Marquee was built to suit the size of the available space and provided a blank canvas for styling to their desired theme – a Winter Wonderland!
All-Season Marquee Hire
Marquee hire services are conventionally associated with summer events, but at Allspan we offer a more superior all-season service. You see, our structures are built to withstand the elements, and can be fully heated.
Our temporary structures also benefit from a level cassette floor system. This provides a solid and stable footing for guests and can be finished with a quality needle cord carpet. The floor finish in a temporary building should be a key consideration for any venue requiring a temporary extension for special occasions. A solid floor reassures guests wearing party footwear, as it provides a seamless transition from one space to another, and prevents any unnecessary trip hazards.
Marquee Links and Walkways
Not all venues can simply install a temporary structure next to their main entertainment space. Quite often, guests need to walk from the venue to the temporary event structure. In this situation, we can install a walkway, or entrance link, which creates the impression of a seamless transition from the permanent building to the temporary party space.
A marquee link or walkway can be dressed and lit to meet the same criteria as the main party venue and enhance that all-important first impression.
Party AccessoriesNot all Allspan clients use our temporary structures for sit down meals. These are truly versatile structures that can be styled to meet your needs. At Christmas, the additional space can be used for a dance floor, breakout area or for reception drinks.
At Allspan, we can provide everything you need to make your festive event a resounding success. From lighting to dance floors, furnishings to washrooms, we have the means to bring that extra sparkle to your Christmas celebrations.
Short and Long Term Temporary Structure HireDependent on availability and your requirements, Allspan does offer both short and long-term temporary structure hire for venues in London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex and the wider South East.
The Table Café for instance will be utilising the Allspan structure for events over a three week period in December. While during the summer months, we install an elegant structure in the grounds of Westminster Abbey over a four-week period. During which time it is used for various corporate events and entertainment.
We will arrange a full site survey to review the space and ground, then discuss any additional requirements for event styling, furnishing, accessories and dance floors. There is a lot to consider, but our team are on hand to help every step of the way.
