Why Your Outdoor Event Needs Welfare Cabins

Updated: Jun 15, 2023

As the temperature rises and the days lengthen, it’s safe to say that spirits are lifted. After all, the summer is a time for relaxing outdoors, catching up with friends and enjoying a drink or two in the sun.

Of course, it’s not all cocktails and deckchairs; for those working within the events industry, the warmer months are typically the busiest of all. From music festivals and sports to fairgrounds and markets, it takes hard work, preparation and expertise to plan an outdoor event of any kind. Without the correct facilities and equipment, mass gatherings can quickly become disorganised and somewhat chaotic.

Here at Manchester Cabins, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about outdoors events. Having provided containers and portable buildings since 1979, we thought we’d share a little wisdom.

Read on to discover why your event needs welfare cabins.

Welfare cabin


First and foremost, it is vital that your event has an area for first aid and emergencies. Of course, professional medical assistance is a must, but an area in which individuals can escape the hustle and bustle of the main event is always a good idea. Whether an individual becomes overwhelmed or requires a glass of water and a plaster, a welfare cabin provides a quiet safe space to sit down and recuperate.

What’s more, our welfare cabins and diners contain refrigerators, seating, boiling water taps and storage. This is ideal for the storage of bottled water, basic first aid supplies, food and other emergency items.


Today, more than ever, we are aware of the importance of hygiene at large events and gatherings. Welfare cabins offer a multitude of benefits regarding the upkeep of good hygiene for both staff and visitors. With fully functional sinks, hot and boiling water taps, toilet cubicles and storage, welfare cabins will ensure that your event meets hygiene standards and is comfortable for visitors.

Staff Catering

Last but not least, a welfare cabin equipped with diner facilities is an ideal addition for events lasting more than a day. From stewards and ticket officers to first raiders, engineers and promoters, hardworking staff deserve a comfortable area to cook, eat and rest their legs.

A welfare cabin provides exactly this, with seating for up to 8 people, a full-sized fan assisted oven, electric hob and microwave. This is a perfect addition for those working long shifts in need of a little downtime.
