provided by Thorns Group will be coming to a stage near you thanks to TV chefs The

Hairy Bikers.

The group, which has offices in Birmingham, Manchester and

London, has provided the Big Night Out Tour with a range of catering equipment,

as The Hairy Bikers embark on their first stage tour across the UK. 

Among the equipment provided is the popular mahogany gothic

chair, classic Perception wine glasses, Martini glasses, the stylish Sonata

range of china and the elegant Muscagni cutlery. 

The tour started on the 30th

January in Birmingham’s Town Hall and continues to make its way around the

country to its final stop on the 11th April at The Swan in High


Darren Jackson, Account

Manager at Thorns Group, said: “We are delighted to be involved in The Hairy

Bikers stage tour. The duo is famed for their love of food and travelling on

motorcycles in search of great dishes. We are proud to be associated with them. 

“Preparations for

the tour have been ongoing since December, and we have worked very closely with

the show organisers to work out what would look best on camera. With a wide

range of equipment to choose from, we were able to suggest a number of ranges

of china and cutlery that in our experience works best on camera.” 

Thorns is no

stranger to working with the stars on film and television sets. The group has

previously supplied furniture and catering equipment to popular programmes such

as Holby City, Big Brother and Friday Night with

Jonathan Ross.
