Deckchairs for Hire - the History
In all the years that we have been selling deckchair canvas by the mile (and the odd deckchair too!) we have been asked many times to hire them out for events, weddings and other festive party venues and concerts.
With our efforts since 2007 to bring the deckchair back in all its glory, our deckchairs are made and quickly sold, leaving none available for hire.
Now all that has changed - we have now acquired ALL Blackpool's iconic deckchairs in their beach worn and sand-tossed original glory.
All 6000 of them, along with all the windbreaks, ticket machines and the incredible history behind them!
We will be able to offer small to large volumes of hire, anything from 4 deckchairs to, well, 6000!
Each deckchair will be re-worked with new metal fittings for strength without removing the integrity of the original patina. We are able to send out for hire with the original worn plastic covers, or replace with new in the same modern equivalent.
Otherwise for Luxury Deckchair Hire we would be able to cover to order with any of our striped deckchair fabric - either mixed colours or all the same whichever your preference.
All deckchairs are guaranteed original deckchairs from Blackpool and may carry the initials BCPD
The history of Blackpool as a boom resort town before and between the wars and up to the 1960's is fascinating story and well documented by many writers including Bill Bryson. The enduring image of postcard humour, knotted handkerchiefs, fish and chips and seaside landladies are the stuff of legend. At its peak, Blackpool Council within a period of three years (1958 - 1960) banked over £6 million in CASH from the takings of deckchair hire alone.
