2021 Lockdown Birthday Hire Ideas

Posted By: The Northern Entertainment Co. | Posted Date: Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Lockdown 2021 household hires and ideas.

Another year, another lockdown.

Well, it's looking like another year of uncertainty, working from home, homeschooling, even Joe Wickes Is returning! 

If like me, as a parent you're feeling the stress of everything going on. Arguing with the little one to get dressed and do her school work, getting ready for those zoom quizzes with relatives again, spending late evenings catching up on work with a cold cup of tea that's been forgotten about.

The last thing you want is to worry about your child's birthday. That's where we come in. 

With over 6 years of running and almost a years experience of operating during Covid19, we have worked tirelessly throughout 2020 researching ways to protect our customers from the virus, rebuilding our system into a totally zero contact service and delivering new products where social distancing can be maintained.

We have listed our top 5 services which are suitable for lockdown hires, all of which are perfect for you to enjoy within your household, no party necessary! 

What services are safe for hire?


Our number 1 recommended service is of course our mobile cinema hire. Delivered to your garden and set up within 20 minutes. We take care of your entire setup so the only thing you need to use is the remote control! 

Our cinemas come in a wide range of sizes, styles and packages. From 100 inch pop up screens to enormous 20ft inflatable theatre packages.

We supply absolutely everything you need for the ultimate movie night including a high quality projector, sound system and of course the big screen. 

Why not go the whole hog and book some delicious snacks? Our hot food machines are available at an incredible discounted rate when you book any of our cinema packages. Order Nachos, hot dogs or popcorn!

Hot tubs

Hot tubs make isolation feel like a holiday! Our tubs are available for 4 nights of pure luxury. At a huge 7ft size and comfortably seating 7 people, this Spa tub is without a doubt popular!

Our hot tubs heat up to 40 degrees, are suitable for any flat solid surface and come with the option to add a gazebo (grass only, the tent needs to be pegged down for health and safety)

We use brand new filters with every hire, chemicals are carefully added and a handbook is left with our customers for any guidance if necessary. We are insured to £5m public liability, carry out risk assessments and as always, we steam clean and sterilize our tubs thoroughly after each hire.

Teepee tents

Remember how fun and exciting it was to build a den as a kid? Why not surprise your little ones with a real life camp out in your living room! Each package features tents, beds, blankets, duvets, pillows and cushions.

Decorated to your chosen theme with fairy lights, bunting and accessories.

Plus a lap tray displayed with drinks bottles, ornaments and your very own goodie bag/box full of toys, sweets and treats!

What other safety measures have we put in place?

For the past year, we have worked extremely hard behind the scenes to make sure we can deliver the safest possible service to our customers. The following measures have been thoughtfully put in place to ensure yours and your families wellbeing.

Online booking system

Booking with us is quick and hassle free. Simply choose your service, click "Book" then fill out the form. An email and text message will be sent out with your hire details and payment options.

Cashless payments

Cashless payments aid our zero contact service. We offer secure online payment options, all transactions are receipted automatically via our smart booking system.

Online signatures

Another great feature we added last year! All our terms and conditions, health and safety forms and risk assessments are sent electronically via our emailing system. Not only does this keep everyone safe, it saves you a lot of time upon set up.

Zero contact delivery/collection

Once payments have been made and your booking is confirmed, we will take care of the rest. Most of our services are outdoors. We will simply turn up at the arranged time, set up and leave until collection. It's like we were never there!

Door delivery

For indoor hires, we will deliver directly to your home and maintain social distancing in the process. We will provide a detailed handy pack for DIY set up and leave until collection time. Our phones are always on hand to help anytime.

Outdoor services

The majority of our services are in fact outdoor and  a great way to enjoy some fresh air with your family. We now also supply tents and shelters so even if the weather is poor, you can still have fun!

Thank you

We are so humbled with how far we made it through 2020 with the support of our customers, friends and family. As a business we owe it to you and your kids to keep going and provide fun filled days at home. 

As parents, we know how important it is to keep everyone safe through these tough times.

We will do all we can to keep delivering to you throughout 2021, no matter how big or small the event!

From everyone here at The Northern Entertainment Co. 

Thank you and stay safe.
