About

Hello!  I am so glad you have found The Great Event which has been set up and is run by me, Emma Birkin.  Having helped put together over 300 events at our venue, The Great Barn, I am aware how important it is to our clients that not only do they look fabulous on their big day, but everything around them does too.  With this in mind I have put together a hire collection of beautiful decorations, furniture with a difference and lovely linens.

To make it easier for you, alongside the more unusual pieces, we've included some of the basic bits which form the backbone of most events, so hopefully you will find everything you need for your day in one place - one delivery, one invoice.  If we can’t supply what you are looking for do get in touch, chances are we know someone who can!  And remember we will be adding to our collections all the time, so keep checking our website.

Once you’ve chosen all you would like to hire, simply order online, telling us the date and location of your event and we’ll get back to you with a quote including delivery and any set up costs. 

If you need some help with ideas, come and see us in our showroom just outside Exeter.  We're happy to offer advice, share contacts and would love to hear about your plans for your big day.
