Marquee Hire

MHC Events offer marquee hiredecor hire and event furniture hire for weddings, parties, corporate hospitality, festivals, and more. 

We have worked on many different styles of marquees, from frame structures, tensile, traditional to big tops. 

We primarily stock frame marquees as these are the best option for most events. These are incredibly versatile and can be used unlined for casual events, of fully dressed with solid doors, linings and flooring for more formal functions and weddings. Further details of the marquee hire options that we offer are below.

Frame Marquee Hire

We stock freestanding frame structures that use a metal frame to support the covering material. This material is made of plain white fire retardant plastic.

Our structures are clear span; this style has the framework built section by section at full height, the plastic is then pulled through the extrusion in the metal frame. These structures are the best option if there are obstacles on site. Especially if you would like them inside the marquee once erected, such as trees, flower beds or walls.

When you choose us for your marquee hire you will receive clean white plastic with either panoramic or Georgian walls. We can also supply clear roof and gable panels if required.

Frame structures are ideal where maximum space is a priority.

Pagoda Marquee Hire

We also stock pagoda/ Chinese hat style structures. These are the smaller pointed style modular units, they can be linked to give a larger area if required. As stand alone units they are ideal for gardens and as entrance marquees to larger structures. These are available as 4m x 4m, 5m x 5m and 6m x 6m.

Size guide for frame & pagoda marquees

You will need an idea of the number of guests you are expecting to get your marquee hire started.

Our frame sizes are 3m, 6m, 9m and 12m widths. They are extendable by 3m bays and can be linked together when a larger area is required. There are no internal poles so you get a clear area to set up for your function. We can also include false walls for additional areas such as catering and entrance marquees.

We have put together a sizing chart to give you an idea of your options. This is a guide only as each event is different. It is important to allow additional space for dance floors, bars and buffet areas. The maximum seating numbers are based on wall to wall tables.

Marquee Hire FAQ

How much does a marquee cost?

Marquee prices vary depending on how casual or formal you want your event. You can have just an empty structure or you can add in flooring, lighting, furniture and decor. See our price list or package deals for specifics.

What areas do you cover?

We cover Essex, Cambridgeshire & Hertfordshire.

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 marquee may affect 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.

What size marquee 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.
