About Us

"A huge selection of fabrics, colours and styling products plus free, expert design advice = WOW factor events & weddings."

So What Does 88 Events Do Exactly?

Founded in 1996, 88 Events offer the UK's most luxurious combined collection of table linens and table styling products.

Our ever-growing Hire Collection started life in 2001 as a single tablecloth in one colour. It now features:

We manufacturer AND launder all the table linen ourselves and back it up with an industry-first triple quality guarantee

We even offer a FREE design service to help you style stunning tables that will wow your guests every time.

But Didn't You Used To Plan Events Too?

Indeed we did. From 2001 until 2019, we had two divisions. One division offered a Hire Service, just like now. The other was involved in planning high-end corporate events, exclusive private parties and luxury weddings.

Whilst our hire business was always growing throughout this time, the growth was so dramatic that we decided to quit event planning and concentrate all of our energy on the hire business. We're based in Glasgow but supply table linen nationwide. In fact, 40% (and rising) of our turnover is generated outside of Scotland.

So our full focus these days is on making our Hire Collection accessible to as many people in the UK as possible.

But You're Still Called 88 Events?!

Correct. We've been in business for nearly 30 years and there's so many people in the industry who know us as 88 Events that to change our name now might prove to be more hassle than it's worth. That's not to say we won't change our name in the future.

Until you hear otherwise, we're still 88 Events. But you can call us 88 if you want!
