Marquees and Event Facilities
Event Services marquees come in many sizes and are available with linings, décor, lighting, heating, full flooring or matting, and a host of other options including luxury mobile toilets, walkways, lighting and power etc.
We like to discuss YOUR event and carefully create what YOU want - at a competitive price. There is no ‘off the shelf’ marquee package and price; every event is different and very important. Most events like Wedding Receptions or Special Anniversaries are a one-off: It must be right first time, on time. We pride ourselves in the quality of our products and service; our experienced, smart and friendly staff take great care in ensuring every part of the event is as perfect as can be.

Here is a basic glossary of terms and descriptions of our marquees:
All marquees are measured width x length in metres. Our Marquees come in 3m, 6m, 9m and 12m wide. They are made up of ‘bays’ which are either 3m (‘Tectonics’) or 5m (‘Walu’) depending on the type. So the length will be in multiples of 3 or 5m. i.e. 9m x 15m. All are inter-compatible and can be linked or joined to suit different areas.
They are all clear span – meaning there are no guy ropes or centre poles to obstruct vision or be a trip hazard. Made of very sturdy aluminium section. Be wary of cheap, flimsy marquees that may look the same but move and clank around in the slightest breeze!
The walls and roofs are heavyweight fire-retardant pvc and tensioned to minimise any ‘flapping’ or movement if there is any wind. Walls are plain white with a lace-up parting in the centre, meaning almost any wall section can be opened. We also provide Emergency Exits / Fire Exits in accordance with the Fire and Building Regulations requirements.
Window walls and gable walls are available in either Georgian Style or plain large clear Picture Windows. See the gallery.
Hats [or Chinese Hats] are sturdy, small marquees, in various sizes. Most have a conical peeked roof, and like the main marquees, can have plain white, Georgian window or Picture Window walls. They can easily link to ‘Walu’ units to create bar or entrance areas.
Pagodas are a budget, but still very attractive and robust version of the Chinese Hats. See Party Pagodas pdf. The covers and metalwork are slightly lighter in construction yet very suitable for small BBQ’s, parties etc.
Stakes or Ballast are used to secure the marquee safely. Usually stakes (into grass) but any marquee can be sited on tarmac or even delicate places like artificial tennis courts, using pads (to protect soft surfaces) and suitably sized ballast blocks. Wall wires or braces are essential to the stability of the marquee and will mean one or two bays need bracing so they will not be able to open (although they can have windows. If ballast or bracing is required, we will calculate and advise accordingly.
