“Our aim is to leave our clients with the feeling of having had a fabulous time, but without them having to put in the effort – prior to, during, and after their event.”

Established Since 2011

Managing Partners, Gareth and Louise, started HostYourParty because they love the day to day running of weddings, parties, corporate events and beyond. They are based in Little Hallingbury, Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.

With the ever demanding need for specialist events services, at HostYourParty, we feel we are giving something back to the community and helping people to have fun, be happy and enjoy their events rather than worrying about organising them.

At HostYourParty we provide fully trained and competent staff for each of our events. From your initial contact by telephone or email, we will always be professional and you can be sure that we’ll go beyond the call of duty to make you happy.

What Our Customers Say

“Many thanks indeed to HostYourParty for providing the bar so efficiently and effectively at my daughter’s wedding. It was great (as was the beer!). Thanks also for your good wishes.”

Rob Clements

“A huge thank you to HostYourParty for setting up the LED bar at our party on Saturday and for keeping all our guests supplied with drinks. The bar looked very impressive and many of our friends commented on how superb it looked at night. You were all extremely friendly and polite and you worked your socks off. We really did appreciate all your hard work and you made a cracking job of clearing up when you left, which was such a relief to us on Sunday morning!”
