Big Top Hire
Big top hire offers a really great alternative to a standard marquee. We stock a fantastic purple big top with white diamonds, this is available in 18m x 18m (60ft x 60ft) or 18m x 27m (60ft x 90ft)
Big tops do not have the fabric internal linings inside, they have taller walls and also have internal poles. The wall height is great for events with live performance as it gives more head room for staging. These structures are often a great addition for themed events, fun days, festivals or for something a bit different for your wedding or party.
They offer great value for money giving you a large space and lots of wow factor.
Big tops are generally best built on grass surfaces as they have a large quantity of stakes that are put into the ground during construction. We are however more than happy to build on hard surfaces if you are happy for us to anchor into the ground. Big tops cannot be built using weights as an alternative to stakes.
Frequently asked questions
Holding an event can be great fun but organising it can be a bit daunting if you haven’t done it before. Please find some answers to questions we get asked that might be of help.
How much does a big top cost?
Big top prices really do range depending on how casual or formal you want your event. You can have just an empty structure or you can add in carpet, lighting and furniture.
What size big top do I need?
The size structure you need depends on the type of event you are planning. When considering size, you need to think about if you want your guests to be seated, standing or part and part. What additional items you would like in the structure i.e. stage, bar area or dancefloor. We generally advise no more than 2 people per sq m for standing. We are happy to help, if you are unsure and would like some advice deciding please contact us.
How long is your hire period?
As a general rule weekend events are delivered on a Thursday or Friday to suit you and mid-week by arrangement. Dismantle is generally on a Monday or Tuesday. We try to be flexible in regard to delivery/collection. Depending on where you are putting your big top may effect this as different sites do have their own rules on access times. We will always try to arrange convenient times with you. If the hire period required is for a second weekend (Inc. build/dismantle) an additional costs will apply.
