About Fanfare Event Hire

Fanfare Event Hire (formerly Salston Hire) began as a farm diversification enterprise set up by Nick Cave over 20 years ago.  It grew into a successful and well respected local marquee hire company.  The tents have now all been sold but the decision was made to retain the furniture and tableware and run it solely as an event hire company. 

Frances (Fan) Cave, Nick’s wife now runs Fanfare whilst Nick concentrates on farming. Fan is also a family celebrant click here for

Our mission statement is to provide essential hire equipment as affordably as possible.   Our customers are those who would rather spend their money on a good band, honeymoon,  holiday,  booze, food or venue and use our essentials as the foundation for their creativity, imagination and flair.
