The tents are hired out to schools, hen parties, weddings, family occasions, landmark birthday celebrations, the list goes on. All the client needs to do is find the location and Norfolk Bells does the rest.
Norfolk Bells is one of the largest Bell Tent hire companies in Norfolk and the only one to offer shower facilities and due to the service standards the company offers, there are many repeat customers.
Other Bell Tent hire companies have also passed bookings across as they do not have the number of tents available that Norfolk Bells has. The tents are usually hired between 1st May and 30th September.
The business is being sold with a vibrant and easy to navigate website, www.norfolkbells.co.uk, the company mobile phone number and social media sites including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.
