Outdoor Events in Winter - What Equipment Do You Need?

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to rethink every aspect of our lives, from how we live and work, to schooling, travel and socialising. The restrictions that have been put in place are changing regularly, but many have focused on socialising outdoors to keep loved ones safe and transmission levels low.

As we head into the colder months, the thought of socialising outdoors might not seem that appealing! However, if you have the right equipment, a winter outdoor event can be just as fun as a party during the summer, so read on for our brief guide to the important equipment you need.

Toilet blocks

Toilet facilities are vital to keep guests comfortable, especially if you're holding your event in an outdoor open space. Experts recommend having one portable toilet for every 60 guests, but you can of course opt for more to cut down on queues. Portable toilet blocks also prevent mud or snow from being trampled into indoor areas, so they’re a good investment if you’re holding an event in a large private garden.


Heaters are essential for any winter party and there are several different options to choose from. A firepit is a good option for smaller events and they also give off a gorgeous cosy glow. For larger events, it’s best to hire patio heaters and space them at regular intervals to ensure all guests stay warm. You could also provide extra blankets and rugs for people to wrap up in if they’re still feeling the cold.


British weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but especially during the winter months. You can’t really on a clear, dry day, so some form of shelter is essential. This could be in the form of a gazebo, awning or specialist event shelter, depending on the size of your event. Ensure that any shelter is securely pitched before your event begins and consider laying down some wooden boards or temporary flooring if you’re expecting rain.
