We understand that organising an event is not easy, so we are here to help and assist you. Here are a list of our frequently asked questions. Click a question to view the answer.

What size marquee do I need?

When you have finalised your guest list and know the approximate number of people who will be attending your event, take a look at our size guide to find the right marquee for your special occasion. Remember to take into account extra space for dance floors, the bar and room for the DJ. It’s always best to have slightly more room than you think you need, as any extra equipment will quickly take up space. To give your guests space to enjoy themselves, make sure you consider these things before you choose your marquee, and allow for a catering tent too.

What else might I need?

Flooring – once you have chosen your marquee, then you can decide how you’d like the interior to look. We can lay wooden flooring or carpet on a waterproof underlay, and supply carpets in a variety of shades to complement any colour scheme.

Linings – If you are looking for something really impressive, we recommend you consider adding pleated linings to the inside of your marquee. We offer a variety of different swags, and can also provide blackout or star cloth linings.

Furniture – We can supply tables in various sizes which can seat 8, 10 or 12 people, as well as trestle tables which are perfect as top tables or buffet tables. You can also choose from banqueting chairs, Samsonite plastic folding chairs or wooden folding chairs.

What lighting do I need?

From chandelier style lighting for your main marquee area, to strip lighting for the catering tent and walkway areas, we can supply the lights that you need to brighten your marquee. We can also supply outdoor lighting, including floodlights to illuminate trees and buildings, as well as up-lighters. Please contact us for a quotation.

Do I need toilet facilities?

Any event with over 50 people on the guest list will probably require additional toilet facilities. The cheapest are single unit chemical toilets, but we can also provide luxurious trailer units with gold plated taps and piped music – the works! Just ask for details.

Do I need a power supply?

If you are planning a small event, we can run lighting from any 13-amp socket within your home. When more power is required for your caterers, DJ or lighting, then we can work with you to find a solution to suit your requirements. Remember to check in advance the power requirements of your caterers and entertainment, and whether they will supply extension leads.

Do I need a heating system?

Chilly weather can really dampen the spirits at an outdoor event, so if you are planning a party between September and the end of May, we recommend that you book a heating system to keep your guests warm as the temperatures drop in the evening. These work on thermostatic control so don’t need to be operated manually during the event.
