Fletchers provide marquee for Robot Wars

Robot Wars February 2014 

We received the initial enquiry from the Science Dept of Durham University who wanted to hold the Robot Wars as part of their Celebrate Science event.

They required a marquee for a science in schools project during half term holidays based on the famous Robot Wars television programme.


The university wanted a frame marquee be high enough to accommodate 4m high x 12m deep x 10mm arena and tiered seating for 400 per show with 4 shows per day. Fletchers Marquees are in a unique position to supply such specialist accommodation.


Children from various schools were asked to build their own robots which were then used to challenge ‘professionally’ produced Robots from Robots Live Limited.

We arranged the tiered seating and it was supplied by Woodhouse Show and Event Specialists. All electrics were completed by Durham University Estates and Buildings Department.
