Marquees can be used throughout the year. Some of our largest events are during December when we supply marquees for corporate Christmas parties. Thermostatically controlled heating ensures they are as warm as a function suite.


The size is determined by the number of guests and what else is going into the marquee, such as dance floors, reception areas or exhibitions. We will advise you on what we recommend after we have discussed your requirements.

The cost of the marquee depends on many things, the size, the time of year, the length of hire and travelling costs. We will provide a quotation that takes all these things into consideration.

There is no ‘better’ option, both have their merits. We find that some clients prefer a pole peg marquee for the vintage feel, which is very popular at the moment. The inner poles can be used for additional decoration, flowers, lights etc. The freestanding frame benefits from no internal obstructions and can be used on either grass or hardstandings.

The marquee is normally delivered one or two days before the event depending on the size and internal decoration. This gives time for caterers to set up and for internal decorations and flowers to be put in place.

The marquee is usually collected within a day or two after the event.

It varies but the sooner you book, the better. We are always heavily committed during May – August with annual events, so we get fully booked very quickly during this period. All we require in the early days is an indication of the final number of guests and the date. We then remove your marquee and furniture from our ‘available’ hire stock. A team of erectors are also allocated at this stage.

No, marquees can be used on most surfaces because they can be anchored to the ground or held in place with ballast weights.

The grass should not suffer because of the marquee. It may be a little lighter in colour when the marquee is removed but should soon recover with no lasting damage.

We have a wide range of furniture for hire and have contacts with other furniture suppliers if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.

This is normally done by the client or caterer. We can provide a lay-out suggestion for the marquee but clients and caterers usually work together to decide their preferred option.

We recommend propane gas ducted blowers as the most cost effective and safe.

We provide a wide range of flooring or carpet options from cord carpet with PVC underneath to suspended cassette flooring.

A completely flat surface is very unusual. Until the whole area of the marquee is determined, it looks worse than it is. When the marquee is erected and the tables and chairs are in place, a slight slope is not noticeable. In cases of a definite slope within the marquee site, we can use cassette flooring or scaffolding to level the area. We have staff members who have completed a scaffolding course for these occasions.

Our standard stock colour is charcoal as experience has shown us that marks and spills that occur during the event are less noticeable than on some other colours. We can purchase coloured carpets on behalf of clients if they wish to incorporate them into a colour scheme.

We require access to a standard 13 amp supply for our equipment. However, your caterer and entertainment may want extra power. We will advise on electrics or generators.

We will advise on the size and type required and can arrange this for you?

When space is at a premium, lining an existing building is an ideal alternative. When fitted out, it can look exactly the same as the inside of a marquee.

Frame marquees are freestanding – without guy ropes which makes then ideal for using as a extension to a house or building. They come in a range of sizes and can be linked together if necessary to fit awkward shaped areas.

We do not have a site but will tell you about locations in your area where we have worked in the past.

We offer a free no-obligation site visit by our representative, who can also provide detailed drawings of the layout suggestions.

We appreciate that numbers fluctuate right up the week of the event and accept that minor changes are inevitable.

This is clearly explained in our terms and conditions which will be included with your quotation.

We ask the client to inform us of any underground services. If this is not possible, ballast weights can be used to anchor the marquee.

Frame marquees are designed to be more stable that traditional pole peg marquees so these are the preferred option for winter use. However this does not rule out the use of the traditional marquee. We monitor the weather daily for each area and take the required precautions for anchoring the marquees to the ground,

Our phones are constantly monitored and any urgent messages will be responded too a.s.a.p.

We offer a nationwide service.

We have been established for over 30 years and most of our members of staff have been with the company since the mid 80’s. We are members of MUTA the trade organisation for marquee organisations and all our team leaders hold NVQ Level 3 in Temporary Structures for Events.

Our client base is wide and varied and our repeat orders account for over 80% of our annual workload.

The marquee sides are installed using hooks along the top and laced together. They can easily be removed and refitted.
