R & J leisure was started in 1981 by John and Rosie Armitage with a commitment to provide rides and attractions for corporate and special events throughout the country and also to hire equipment for the start of the development of theme parks in the UK as we know it today.
Long term hire partners include Lightwater Valley for fifteen years,
Granada theme park American Adventure four years, the Zoological Society Whipsnade Animal park four years and Metroland at Gateshead for three years. Also hire arrangements at The Lincolnshire Events Centre, Alton Towers and Fantasy Island.
In 2012 we felt very privileged to provided all of the crowd barriers for Lincolnshire County Council for the Olympic Torch Relay, provision of mobile toilets and catering at the reception venue at Yarborough Road in Lincoln. We also supplied many small villages and towns as this one in a lifetime torch passed through the county of Lincolnshire.
At the present time most of our work is for the special event short term hire and over the years we have increased our commitment to this type of event where we can offer almost everything required for the day whether it is an intimate wedding or a large corporate day and we can very often source any special requirements a client might require, within this service comes the peace of mind that all the arrangements are taken care off within one organisation and event managed if required.
