Marquee, big top & event equipment hire

Make the most of your outdoor space get ready for STEP 2 on 12th April

Covid-19 roadmap 2021

With the latest Government roadmap released today (22nd February) offering the proposed dates (subject to ‘The Four Tests’ being met) for reopening, we will be double checking what events, numbers etc are allowed as from each date. We will also be confirming locations allowed i.e. garden or venue and update as we know. 

For now please note that unfortunately as per National restrictions our premises still remain closed to clients at this time.

We will be looking at what marquee options may be suitable for clients in each of the steps in gardens and venues over the next couple of days and update accordingly. Bear in mind that for a marquee to be classed as outside space it must have at least 50% of the sides open, if up against a fence, wall etc this will class as a side unless it is more than 1.5m away. Equipment hire is still available for emergency response. Examples of this include but are not limited to testing stations, schools, hospital triage and vaccination stations, if you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us. 

We are still available to discuss future events that you may require quotations or just general information. 

Regarding new and existing bookings, as per our terms of hire we standardly take a 25% non-refundable booking deposit. We have made all booking deposits fully transferable in the event that you need to postpone or cancel your function due to Government restrictions regarding Covid-19. We will credit deposits paid against any future hire (orders for new hires as always will be subject to availability). This is also currently in place for future bookings, so don’t be put off planning ahead for your social events.

We appreciate how frustrating & disappointing the situation has been for all our lovely clients, let’s hope the Four tests are met at each of the steps, so that we can all get back to normal.

Once again we cannot say thank you enough to all our wonderful clients who have been overwhelmingly supportive during these difficult times.

Sacha Cole
WOW MHC Events pulled it out of the bag for us. With little less than 1 month to organise the whole event Sarah and the team managed the whole process from initial enquiry to taking the marquee down after the event with fabulous efficiency, and well planned and fine tuned organisation. Everything was explained, costs were gone through in minute detail changes took place at the last minute with no hassle or bother. Both Sarah and Paul were absolutely brilliant to work with, they both know their stuff and we had a fabulous structure which looked fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone having a party in the near future. I felt thoroughly confident throughout and my daughter had an amazing 18th consequently. Cant think you guys enough!​

MHC were phenomenal from the first call to collection. Sarah and Paul run such a helpful friendly and professional service. The result was a stunning glasshouse effect marquee that all our guests marveled at! The price was constitutive and the help and assistance we got throughout the process was amazing. Thank you so so much MHC x​
Credit Escape! Festival
Dear Sarah and the MHC team Thank you for your provision of the marquee at the Escape! Festival on Saturday. It was great to work with MHC - the marquee was spot on - exactly what we needed, your ability to set-up/pack-down at times which slotted into the agenda for the day was greatly appreciated, and the pre-event information which you provided was hugely useful to us enabling the day to go so smoothly. We had amazing feedback from many different people. If we repeat this event, or similar, in the future then we will be certain to book with MHC. Thank you, Sam

Friendly, helpful professional and so easy. They helped advise in the run up to our wedding and then set up and broke down the tent efficiently, quietly and super quickly. Great staff on site and on the end of the phone. Would recommend to anyone needing a marquee of any sort. They are great
Excellent service
We used MHC Events for our wedding earlier this month, and couldn't be happier with the service. The marquee looked absolutely brilliant and the team were incredibly friendly. Their suggestions were really helpful, and we are so pleased with how everything went Emma
