Below is an article that Marquee Hire have written to help their clients answer some questions


When you are hiring a marquee, it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming knowing the different options you could take.  At Marquee Hire we try to make the decision making as painless as possible with tools like our marquee price calculator, but we know there are lots of myths associated with marquees which we aim to debunk now!


Are marquees only good for summer events?

We are pleased to say that marquees are great for events all year round and can make a magical addition to any occasion, whatever the time of year.  In cooler weather we use thermostatically controlled heaters that are usually sited outside the tent, and with a great range of marquee lighting we can brighten up even the darkest of days and turn your event into a real bright spot.

Are marquees just used for weddings?

Whilst we provide marquees for many weddings throughout the year, this is just one part of the business.  Corporate events, topping out ceremonies, parties large and small, bar and bat mitzvahs, temporary additional space and festivals are just some of the events we have successfully provided marquees for.  So there really are no limitations in terms of the events we can cater for.

Are marquees only for large events?

Whilst we happily provide a whole range of marquees for larger events, we are also happy to work with clients with smaller requirements.  Maybe you just need a bit more space at home for a party, or a temporary structure while building work is going on, we certainly believe in the motto “no job too large or too small.”

How can you make a marquee different for our event?

The range of drapes, lighting, flooring, configurations that we can provide with our marquees is truly extensive.  We pride ourselves on making your event unique and love discussing ideas to make your event special to you.

Are marquees only appropriate for short term hires?

We have helped many clients who have needed marquees for an extended period of time or for a series of events. All of our marquees are fully staked and weighted and completely fire resistant and weatherproof, making them a great long term solution for festivals, holiday events and exhibitions.
