How we have become the trusted partner for event venues


Bespoke for any event

We understand the challenge of making a choice and know exactly how to help venues present distinct options to their event clients.

We have developed a customisable marketing package for venues to have on hand to support their clients in designing their perfect event including swatches, presentations, portfolios of images, and price lists. Special Occasion Linen have developed an incredible range of table and chair linens, enabling venues to meet the demands of any event, from a simple classic style, to the most ornate, highly-decorative scheme.


Excellent range, superior choice

With over thirty beautiful, vibrant colours, alongside bespoke hues, available across our extensive collection of sizes and styles, we are proud of the unparalleled choice we offer our partners.

Our linens are of the highest quality and sourced by us from sustainable performance textiles through to the most luxurious 100% high threadcount cotton. The huge breadth of options we have available, and the confidence that Special Occasion Linen can meet any scale of requirement, allows venues to differentiate themselves from the competition when securing client event bookings.


Together through experience

We recognise the value of the relationships we have with our venue partners, many of which have been ongoing for several decades, and reflect this through our preferential, trade pricing and discount options.

Having provided linen hire services for restaurants, hotels, clubs, colleges and universities, among many others, it is rare to find an event that we haven’t catered for. We treasure our ability to reassure our partners with quick responses, managed delivery options and the highly valued services of our parent company CLEAN, who have been providing first-class linen laundering since 1886.


Tailored management

With Special Occasion Linen, our service is always tailored to the exacting needs of the event and the venue.

We understand that knowledge of the layout, and specific challenges, of a venue can make all the difference when striving for a seamless event experience. Deliveries can be packaged by room or area and, depending on the scale of the occasion, support services can be tailored to suit. Our expert teams are dedicated to ensuring the best experience for everyone, from the venue staff through to the event management team and, of course, the all-important guests.


Trust and flexibility

Venues need to be responsive to their clients' needs, however creative, and we always want to give our partners optimal flexibility to meet and exceed even the most inventive of requests.

We therefore don’t insist on a contract for every engagement, and venues can hire linens directly as needed, subject to availability. We also provide contracted, regular services for venues needing the security of guaranteed stock availability for planned, recurring linen rentals.


End-to-end service

Our product quality and breadth of range speaks for itself, but our high level of service and attention to detail is the factor that really sets us apart.

From providing venues with all the tools they need to bring a client’s vision to life, to supporting the event staff through set-up and clear-down, our expert teams are true partners. Whether it is a six-person, classic table setting with crisp, brilliant-white cloths, napkins and runners or a thousand-seat, lavishly-themed dinner dance themed in sponsors colours with textured napkins to align with the floral displays, we relish the challenge in providing a seamless, exquisite experience for all guests.
