With restrictions easing and warmer weather approaching, we're all eager for exciting things to do with our friends and family outdoors.
A Lancashire company is now hiring out a pop-up hot tub cinema experience which can be set up in your garden for a daytime party or a night under the stars.
Based in Thornton-Cleveleys, Outdoor Leisure Events North West Ltd deliver a range of pop-up services such as hot tubs, inflatable cinema screens and pizza ovens to homes all across Lancashire.
Jon Nichol and business partner Mark Cameron set up the joint venture during lockdown in May last year.
"During the first lockdown when things were quiet I came up with the idea and initially bought one hot tub," said Jon Nichol.
"We then continued to buy a few more and started to hire them out. We then bought the inflatable cinema screens.
"We now have nine hot tubs and four screens out for hire. We also hire out pizza ovens with a pizza package, hot tub accessories such as drink holders and LED lights, projectors and games consoles."
Since starting out, business has boomed for the pair who are expecting a busy summer ahead.
"We were overwhelmed with customers during the first lockdown," said Jon.
"It's really taken off and it just works so well. I share a lot on our Facebook page and in local pages which has really helped to bring in business.
"The hot tubs have definitely been the most popular so far, people love them."
The hot tubs are available to hire for three, five, seven, 11 or 14 days.
"Our prices are very competitive and fair," said Jon.
"We deliver, set it all up, install it and then collect it all at the end.
"Hot tubs start from £30 but we do a minimum three-day hire otherwise it's not cost effective.
"We also run a lot of competitions so people have the opportunity to win the whole experience for free."
Jon and Mark are now looking to expand and offer bigger services once large events are permitted to go ahead this summer.
"We're expecting to be really busy this summer," said Jon.
"Eventually we're going to offer horse boxes for large outside events that have been converted to a bar."
The business is completely Covid-compliant with social distanced deliveries and full disinfecting of the products before and after every service.
