Over the years we have worked on many different styles of marquees, from frame structures, tensile, traditional to big tops.
Recently we have found that more and more clients are wanting the focus of their event to be on the internal finishings and usable space, as opposed to having more unusual looking structures. With the advancements in lighting technology and the range of accessories now available for hire on the market, it is possible to transform a simple structure into a really amazing event space.
We have simplified our Marquee Hire range to consist of clear span frame marquees in 3m wide, 6m wide and 9m wide. These marquees can be extended by adding additional 3m long bays and can be linked to give you catering areas and entrance marquees onto your main structure. We will still be supplying our big top structure for clients holding events where this style would be more suitable.
Frame Marquees are freestanding structures using a metal frame to support the covering material, which 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 particular structures are a good option if there are obstacles on site that need to be incorporated within the marquee.
This style is often ideal where maximum space is a priority, your structures will still need to be secured down but stakes are generally positioned at the feet which enables you to fully utilise the space available.
Size guide for frame marquee hire
When you have an idea of the number of guests you are expecting, you need to decide what size of marquee you require.
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 dancefloors, bars and buffet areas. The maximum seating numbers are based on wall to wall tables so remember to add bays when you are getting ideas.
We recommend contacting us to go through your options in more detail and get the right size for your event.
