    The following is a guide to Draping and Starcloth.

    It should tell you everything you need to know when hiring this equipment from us and everything we need to know in order to quote this for you.

    At Premier Events we stock a variety of drape and starcloth options including:


    Black Wool Serge Drape – We stock a thick black wool serge drape which has both ties and Velcro to allow for both hanging and securing drape together to ensure a seamless look when draping a venue. Perfect for full venue draping and as a backdrop.


    Black LED Starcloth – Ideal for covering an entire venue as well as to use as a backdrop for a DJ or band. Our range of starcloths are provided with a controller to set the brightness and twinkling speed of each star in the fabric.


    White Pleated Drape – At Premier, we use a thick white pleated drape with an optional swag, and can drape up to 4m in height, more than enough for most rooms and halls.


    Ivory Starcloth Backdrop – Available in 6 metre sections, these are ideal to use as the backdrop for a DJ or band or for concealing the walls; we will provide you with a controller to set the brightness and twinkling speed of each star in the fabric. We are also able to make the cloth twinkle a pink colour instead of white – just ask us at the time of booking.


    How does our Draping and Starcloth work?

    We install our drape and starcloth using a Pipe & Base system, meaning nothing needs to be attached to the walls of your venue. The Pipe and Base can reach a height of 4 metres; anything higher than this will require a different kind of system. If you know you require your draping or starcloth to be higher than 4 metres, give us a call on 0116 202 9953, press 1 for Technical Event Production and we can chat with you about your options.


    What do we need to know in order to provide a quotation for draping and starcloth? 

    If you are looking to have a whole room draped, the ideal situation for us to be able to quote this for you, would be for you to send us a detailed room floor plan with all dimensions. Have a word with your venue as they might have one of these already that they can send to you. We understand that this isn’t always something that is possible so the next best thing would be for you to measure the room and provide us with the dimensions in as much detail as you can.

    Without the dimensions of the room we are unable to create a quotation for Draping. As with all of our quotations; we will also require your full name, email address, venue name and post code and event date in order to provide you with a quotation.

    If you are solely using the draping or starcloth as a backdrop the room dimensions are less necessary in order to quote. We will need to know the length and height of the area you would like to cover, but no need to give us the dimensions for the whole room.


    Can you provide draping and starcloth for large scale events?

    Yes, we have previously used truss structures to hang Draping and Starcloth in larger scale venues, give us a call on 0116 202 9953 and press 1 to speak to Technical Event Production to discuss your options.


    For a quotation including Draping and Starcloth please call 0116 202 9953 and press option 2 for Event and Wedding Hire. If your event is on a larger scale, please press 1 for Technical Event Production.
