Marquees provide excellent temporary space for all kinds of events, in various styles and sizes, making them versatile enough to meet the needs of most event organisers. The type of marquee you will hire depends on what you need it for, how much space you want, your budget, and your personal taste.
What is the Marquee for?
Marquees can be hired for both indoor and outdoor events! The indoor type are popular for dances, parties such as weddings and wedding receptions held in large venues such as church halls, community centres or barns. Generally using a clearspan style, indoor marquees creates a pleasant and stylish space inside a difficult to decorate venue.
For corporate events, multispan frame marquees work well. Choose from various functional and stylish models according to how much space and light you need.
Festival organisers often choose a traditional style. Reminiscent of circus tents, these are usually the cheapest marquees to hire, and are perfect for situations where the venue is secondary to the actual event. They need soft ground (which can get muddy on the way in), and a lot of perimeter space for guy ropes.
Lots of couples decide to hire an outdoor marquee for their wedding reception, a special day that demands a more attractive shelter than the traditional style with guy ropes. Clearspan marquees fit the bill here, and there are lots of designs to choose from.
Allowing around 20 sq ft per person should give you a clue on pricing, and if you are struggling to afford a big enough marquee, be flexible on the table layouts or shapes to make it more affordable. Excellent weather proofing makes them suitable for all seasons, and as clearspan marquees don’t need internal poles there is more space, leaving room for a dance floor.
