Marquee FAQ’s

Here you will find a list of frequently asked questions about our marquee hire services, including our canopy tents< and wedding marquees.

Do you need to see where I want my marquee sited?

Yes, it is important that we visit the marquee hire site. Apart from the opportunity to meet you, it gives us a chance to survey the site for suitability.

If all is well, we will provide you with a plan of the marquee, together with a fully itemized marquee hire quotation to show you exactly what we can offer. Our site visits are free and without obligation.

How do I work out the size of the marquee I need?

We will give you an estimate based on the number of people and whether your event is fully seated, part-seated or standing only, but this does not take into account, bar, buffet, or dance floor areas. Following our site visit, we will be able to give you a better idea of the size of marquee best suited for your event.

My garden is not suitable for a marquee – can you suggest alternative venues for an outdoor wedding?

We have a comprehensive list of suitable marquee hire venues within your area, all of which are well known to us. We are happy to meet with you at any of the venues or give contact details for you to arrange to meet the owner.

Do you supply heating in your marquees?

Yes, even in the depths of winter we can ensure you that your marquee will be dry, comfortable and warm.

Can you supply marquees that attach to an existing building?

Our unique marquee hire system can be linked and joined to form a variety of shapes and sizes and are particularly well designed to attach to existing buildings.

When do you erect the marquee?

Typically, we would erect your marquee  2 – 3 days prior to your event and take it down within a similar time scale. With enough prior warning we will always try and fit in with any requests, but to achieve this, the earlier we are notified the better.
