Party Staff London & South East – Hire Professional Event Staff
Do you require event staff or party staff for your wedding, party or event? Are you holding a party or event but want to be with your guests rather than having to worry about the food or whether all your guests glasses are topped-up? Why not allow us to worry about the details – this will allow you to really relax and enjoy the event without the stress involved in making sure your guests are looked after. After all there’s nothing worse than having a party if you don’t have the time to enjoy it properly!
We specialise in supplying a variety of party and event staff for a wide range of occasions.
The Types of Staff We Offer:
Our bar staff will take care of serving drinks to your guests and keeping the the bar area clean in addition to general drinks preparation. Our clients typically supply the drink themselves and we operate a free bar using our equipment. This saves you on drinks costs and cuts down queues at the bar.
Our bartenders in London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Essex are the perfect compliment to your event and are supplied in four levels of service:
- General Bar Staff – To serve beer, wine, prosecco/champagne, spirits & soft drinks
- Cocktail Bartenders – To serve all of the above in addition to a pre-selected list of 4 cocktails. We will advise what ingredients you need in advance

Clean up staff
One way to ensure a successful party is to ensure your event space remains clean and free of rubbish, food & plates/glasses.
Our discreet clean up staff will collect glasses, plates, cutlery and rubbish to ensure your event space remains spotless throughout.
This means you can relax and enjoy the event without having to worry about any mess. In addition we will ensure you won’t have to spend time clearing down after the event has finished, after all there’s nothing worse than spending countless hours the following day cleaning up!
All rubbish & recycling will be put into your bins/bags and we can even take rubbish away for an additional charge.
Our serving and greeting staff will greet your guests at the entrance and take coats/jackets/bags to a designated cloak room or area of your choice at the request of your guests. They can also supply a welcome drink as guests arrive. In addition they can serve canapés, food and drinks to your guests.
Something to think about when planning any event is security or door staff. We supply fully licensed SIA door staff in across the south east who will ensure the only guests who are allowed into your venue are the ones you invited.
They will also greet your guests with a smile and dress to suit the event, whether it be an 18th, 21st or a corporate event. No matter how big or small the event is, it is always beneficial to have a professionally trained and licensed door team to look after guests as they arrive and depart from your event.
In addition to SIA door staff we also supply regular non SIA staff who can check guestlists, greet and show guests the way.
How many staff do you need:
Our usual recommendation for general event staff is to have a minimum of 3-4 party or event staff on rotation of various tasks throughout the evening for example preparing drinks and cleaning glasses, greeting guests/taking coats, serving food and clean-up of the event space.
We can provide an accurate guide to the suggested requirement for staff on request, however as a guide for general event staff we recommend 1 staff member per 15 guests. For example if you opt for 4 general event staff we would usually split them into two groups to undertake separate tasks throughout the event. (Such as clean up or serving/topping up of glasses e.t.c).
What factors can affect the amount of staff required:
This figure is only a rough guide and a correct estimation will depend on factors such as: The size of your event space, the amount of guests expected and most importantly the roles the staff will have for the evening. For example if you plan to have our staff preparing food such as canapés in addition to serving food, drinks and cleaning up may need more staff than if food is being prepared in advance and served/presented by an external caterer.
Any security staff required are excluded from this figure. For an accurate guide on how many staff we suggest for your event or how our staff can help your event please click here to get in touch with us on the form below
