Good Morning Britain (GMB) welcomed on the show British comedian Al Murray on Tuesday 19th December 2017 and to make him more comfortable GMB had set up a fully functional Christmas themed bar serving Festive Beer where both presenters Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan joined Al with some freshly poured Draught Beer pints.

The section of the show was filmed live and had caught Susanna’s amusing reaction to realising that the pint she had picked up contained real beer.

The whole set up that includes the bar, beer and equipment was all provided by Bexley based business, Mobile Bar Hire. The portable bar hire company were called upon by ITV production team in the early afternoon of Monday 18th December 2017 and even with a busy Christmas Schedule, Mobile bar hire came through.

The bar itself was personalised with a Christmas chalkboard design at the front which adorned the GMB logo and rightly named ‘The Good Morning Britain Bar’. The tap badges were also personalised with a classic Christmas look presenting in crisp writing ‘Festive Brew’.

Company Director, Rags Sandhu along with William Malingan both attended the event and were welcomed into the studio by Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan.

This is not the first time that Mobile Bar Hire worked with ITV, having recently provided a St Patrick’s Day Bar that served Guinness for Good Morning Britain and also providing equipment for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as well as customising the infamous drinks globe to serve draught beer on Alan Carr: Chatty Man in previous years.

17th March marks St Patrick’s Day, the time of the year everyone embraces their inner Irish! Good Morning Britain celebrated on ITV this morning by Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard enjoying a pint of Guinness live on air! The Guinness bar, keg and equipment were provided by Bexley based Mobile Bar Hire Ltd.

The portable bar providers were contacted by ITV on the 16th March in the late afternoon and asked if the set up could be carried out that night – a task that was taken by Mobile Bar Hire and executed within just a few hours of the phone call.

The bar was adorned in Irish memorabilia such as shamrocks and was cited as ‘Eamonn’s Bar’, named after the Irish presenter Eamonn Holmes. A runner was asked to pour the Irish tipple with Kate and Ben enjoying the taste live on tele.

This is not the first time that Mobile Bar Hire have worked with ITV having previously provided equipment for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Let’s Do Lunch With Gino and Mel. The Kent bar providers have also worked with the One Show on BBC.
