Welcome to Hot Goblin Events Ltd
Location catering for films, TV and commercials
Hot Goblin Events Ltd is an established location catering company that started out in 1999. We have been successfully delivering high quality catering to the TV and film industry for over 20 years.
We have fully equipped location catering kitchens plus a range of back up vehicles providing storage and refrigeration. Hot Goblin Events Ltd can cater for all your requirements large or small, providing breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea. If a production has a specific service, location or timing requirement, please do contact us as we would love to discuss your production.
Our business is focused on catering for TV, Film and Commercials We also ensure that everyone involved is well fed and catered for. We always start with the basics – experienced chefs and being on time with high quality food.
For every lunch serving we also offer an extensive buffet table providing additional hot and cold dishes, salads, cheese selection, bread board and fruit bowl. The self service buffet table enables the cast and crew to help themselves if they wish which helps keep queuing times to a minimum which in turn keeps service times fast and efficient.
Our menus change daily. We do not have a rotating menu system. We constantly introduce new dishes alongside known favourites. We do understand that producing a film is hard work and it is essential to keep energy levels up. This is helped by us by keeping the food fresh, tasty and nutritious every day.
Everything we cook and serve is freshly prepared in the mobile kitchens on the day and to keep everyone satisfied and healthy we steer clear of deep fat frying although we do cook scrumptious desserts!

As Film Location caterers we are fully committed to doing our part in sustainability. We minimise waste, recycle as much as possible and use compostable materials. On many productions we now work alongside Greenshoots and have also won an award.
As any good producer will tell you the first thing to do when you get a commission is book the Caterers. Chris at Hot Goblin is always my first port of call. When I’m struggling to get a crew member to commit to the job my clincher is ‘oh by the way my caterers are’………… They are simply that good and crews know it!

If the series itself plays on cultural difference, then the film crews have also had to accept to each others work practice. The French have had to do without wine at lunch, though they have been pleasantly surprised by the high standard of the British catering.

As I sit in our downsized office in Soho, I thought it was time to write and thank you properly for all your hard work on Call The Midwife. Your ability to produce delicious, varied and interesting food on a daily basis for a crew who survive on their stomachs is truly amazing!

Covid 19 Notice
Location catering has had to change since the Covid 19 pandemic started. We have put together extensive new procedures to ensure we keep our clients and team safe.
We are members of NCASS (Nationwide Caterers Association) and they have a Covid 19 Compliancy working schedule that we adhere to. We also have passed all the relevant Covid 19 Safety Compliance exams and have certificates on request. All our staff are always trained to a minimum of Level 2 Food and Hygiene and above.
We usually meet beforehand with the Production Coordinators and Covid 19 Department (if required) to go through procedures and safety before the production starts.
All of our chefs and team work on well ventilated and screened mobile kitchens. We also have in place social distance measures for staff and production crew when serving at unit base and on set. Extra hygiene measures such as hand sanitising stations and masks have also been implemented for our team.
