About us

Bars 4 Events is a specialist mobile licensed bar company.


We pride ourselves and have indeed built our company on the fact that we listen to event managers, organisers and committees to what they want. We then inject our experience to put that into practice, or if asked our expertise of what we feel they need.

Our company was founded in 2005 and since then have built our business around providing outside bars, for any event, any time, any where, across the UK. 

Since we started every single member of staff have contributed to our growing family tree, which is the backbone of Bars 4 Events. This plays a big part in the quality of service, which we strive to give to each and every one of our valued customers & events.

What we do

We at Bars 4 Events specialise in putting beer tents & bars into events across the UK, anytime, anywhere, that is legally allowed!

We have not yet found anywhere we cannot put a bar!

We can supply the whole bar package for your event.

This can be in the form of full multi-purpose main bars, satellite bars or specialist bars for example; Cider bars, Real ale bars, Gin bars, PIMM'S bars, Prosecco bars, the list is never ending!


Please have a look at the event page you feel is most appropriate for your event, but don’t feel that our services stop there – we can do ANY type of event, so please contact us today to see how we can add to yours.

Steam Rallies,  Country Shows, Military Shows, Air Shows, Festivals, Concerts, Sporting Events, Corporate Hospitality, Christmas Events, Weddings, Parties and much more!

Our friendly bar team is trained to serve the customers quickly so that they can get back to enjoying the show/event rather than spending half the day in a queue for a pint!

Our Environmental Impact

We are making a difference!


Our small steps save our BIG planet!


Re-usable cups are now used at all our bars! Take them away with you and re-use them everywhere you go!


We have reduced our waste by 95%,


Let’s keep it this way!




Chris has been involved in the hospitality industry since before he left school, originally hotel event trained, he then ran a wine bar and nightclub in the city of London for a number of years. He then spent 9 years running his own very successful country pub, where he started doing mobile/outside bars for numerous local events, leading him in 2005 to found Bars 4 Events Ltd.



Although going to college to train and qualify in Performing Arts, Kimberley had been involved in the hospitality industry from a young age as her Mother and Father used to run pubs. Once she left college she decided to then do a degree in Event Management and Wedding Planning. Although originally joining the company as a bar person in 2008, Chris quickly realised that she had a passion for building the company, rivalled only by his own and from 2009 she has been one of the main driving forces behind the company’s success.



Alexandra has been involved in the hospitality & pub trade since the day she was born! She is our full time Event Manager but also works as a freelance videographer, Animator & photographer alongside finalising her degree in Drama, Film radio & Television! Yes she really does not stop! She is an incredible asset to Bars 4 Events and is the main driving force in logistics, setting up and running our incredible bars!


“This doesn’t feel like a job! Yes it is hard work and long hours but I have never had so much fun with a group of people who have become my family! The only way I could describe the atmosphere is like a summer camp with your bestest friends having a great time!” the Bars 4 Events Team quote from 2019!
