When it comes to deciding on a venue for your special event there are certain things you must take into account. Here are just a few of the many benefits of hiring a marquee for your event:
The great thing about marquees is that they are movable venues. A marquee can go in a variety of locations, from gardens and fields to hotels and guest houses. Here in England there are some stunning locations that could provide the backdrop to your event.
If you have already found the perfect venue but there is not enough space for your over-crowded guest list then a marquee may provide an extension to the venue.
Many venues would have restrictions on the number of guests you are allowed or when the event must end. With a marquee you can increase the size (if needed) and continue your event as long as you want.
The great thing about marquees is that you are not tied down by permanent fixtures and fittings, we can design the inside to fit your perfect event design. From where the dance floor is located, to the lighting.
How many guests can I accommodate in a marquee?
The size of your marquee will depend on a number of things such as; how many guests you have invited, whether or not you want a dance floor, stage, tables, bar, etc.
A rough guide is that a 9m x 18m (162 Sq M) marquee will give you room for approx. 288 people standing, 144 people sitting and eating and 88 people if there is a dance floor. These figures can be altered depending on your exact requirements. Please click on link for size guide. (Matt size guide will be attached. Its called size of marquee.)
What are the colour schemes for the marquees and can they be changed?
All our marquees are white PVC, decorated inside our optional linings are Ivory. Coloured LED lighting is optional to suit any range of the colour spectrum.
How are the marquees in bad weather?
Unless exceptional, I.E winds over 60mph, you should experience no problems in our marquees.
Are the marquees safe?
Yes, our marquees are fully staked and weighted and completely fire resistant and weatherproof. They are made in accordance with EC safety standards. However to ensure a dry floor in wet conditions we would recommend that you have a hard floor.
Heating in Winter
Our heaters are thermostatically controlled and are usually sited outside the marquee.
Lighting your marquee
We can provide different types of lighting from uplighters to chandeliers and many more ideas. Please ask about your requirements.
Our standard flooring is Carpet not ideal on grass when high heels are about. Our hard floor is most popular, high heel friendly and we would cover with a carpet, home from home.
Our marquees do not need any extra power requirements unless you are providing catering or having a band etc. We can normally run our cables 50m to the nearest power supply. Otherwise we would need to supply you with a generator.
Can you supply other things apart from the marquee?
Yes. We supply furniture and flooring, lighting and other marquee accessories including generators and portable toilets as well. And we have links with many other event companies, so we can also arrange catering equipment, marquee decoration, theme parties etc., Please ask us for what you need and we will help.
