What size marquee do I require?

The size of the marquee we would recommend is generally determined by the number of guests at the event, whilst bearing in mind that further room is required for dancing, bar and food servery areas. For the best results though, a site visit would be recommended.

Do you do a site survey?

Yes, we can arrange a site survey at your convenience. This is free of charge and without obligation.

How much does a marquee cost?

The cost of a marquee is dependent on a number of factors such as size, lining etc. For a better idea please give us a call and we can discuss your requirements.

What is the difference between traditional and frame marquees?

A traditional pole marquee is supported by a number of ropes, poles and stakes. Internally a traditional marquee has higher ceilings and tall central poles. The frame marquees are aluminium structures, which have no ropes or poles and a lower ceiling. For a better idea view our gallery.

Can your marquees be erected on all surfaces?

We have solutions for any surface but a traditional marquee can only be erected on grass. Please call our team to discuss your requirements and we can arrange a site visit.

Are marquees suitable all year round?

Yes, they can be adequately heated throughout the colder months by using industrial blow heaters.

Can you connect a marquee to a building?

Our marquees have been used as extensions to houses and restaurants in the past. We can also supply covered walkways to or from buildings.

Will a marquee damage my lawn?

No, there will be some small pins holes left in the grass but they should recover in time. Any covered area of grass should grow back in about 2 weeks.

What day would you erect the marquee?

For a weekend wedding we would generally build on a wednesday or thursday, smaller parties maybe left for friday. However, the date of erection is negotiable.
