Size Matters!

Size Matters!​

We are often asked what size marquee our clients need to hire for their event. This is of course very easy to calculate, but first we need to know a few key bits of information. The size you require will very much depend on what your plans are for the day. For example, when we put up a marquee for a Corporate Events International event, we have always allowed enough room for the stage which is generally three meters just in width and our bars from The Festival Bar Company which generally takes up a width of about two meters.Then it’s really all down to seating. We utilise as much space as we can by setting up the table and chairs of your choice so that your guests can be seated for food if that is something you would like, some of our clients are happy with straw bales although this is not always the most cost effective solution. Then as the day turns into the evening, we take the tables down opening up a dance floor. It’s always a good idea to keep some seating in the marquee so that older guests can still enjoy the party and of course your dancing diva’s can rest up before they hit the floor again!Here at The Festival Marquee Company we will give you expert advise on how to secure the right size marquee and we will of course assist you with planning it all out. Before you decide to book with us, we will create you a mock-up of what your marquee will look like so that you can book with confidence knowing that size matters to us!For festival events, many of our clients decide on a mixture of seating and the catering options can be as relaxed as street food from The Street Food Catering Company. This generally means that your marquee requirement is less than we would recommend for an event that is having a formal three-course meal. However, do proceed with caution, as much our we love our beautiful countryside, we all know that our Great British summertime’s can be known to have the odd shower! Therefore, even if you are planning a more informal event, do let us know so that we can make sure there is enough room to keep everyone dry!#LetsCelebrate​

What’s Not To Love About Vintage Tradition?

What’s Not To Love About Vintage Tradition?​

Here at The Marquee Festival Company, our marquees are in a class of their own bringing together the practicalities of being able to offer them to our clients for events in smaller marquees, right up to our larger structures suitable for nearly three hundred guests, all beautifully presented with Scandinavian Pine finishing’s and natural fabric guy ropes.There is no question about it, the right marquee sets the scene for your event, there is certainly no hiding them! There is so much you can do with the blank canvass of a marquee to really finish it off elegantly and make it your own with colours and themes to reflect your celebration.We thought long and hard about buying the right marquees for our clients use and the traditional pole marquees just ticked all of the boxes!  They scream class and sophistication standing in their glory with two magnificent poles that are called king pins, these are perfect to decorate with anything from flowers to fairy lights, or indeed both. The ropes on the outside are beautiful just as they are, however, these can also look splendid decorated and can really make what is already a stunning structure look fabulous.We always aim to set your marquee up at least two days before your event. This gives us a whole day to erect it and leaves one day for our team of designers at Corporate Events International or you to create something that looks truly magical. If you are feeling creative, we have an array of props you can hire or of course we are always happy to get involved and give you some ideas and inspiration.For up to date prices please download the PDF on our website and of course get in touch with our event team today to get an accurate quote and advise on finishing, furnishing and of course adding that personalised charm to show case your celebration with a traditional vintage touch.#LetsCelebrate​

Previously, if you had to hire in all of the separate services to put a birthday on it would have cost you a small mortgage! However, we have acquired a 12 x 12 meter stunning traditional pole marquee that is hired fully decorated with a staffed cash bar from The Festival Bar Company from as little as £2000!  We can seamlessly add all of your stage sounds and lights from The Festival Sound Company who will also help you plan a cracking line-up all coupled with scrumptious delights from The Street Food Catering Company.Need a venue? Not a problem we can do that to! We have venues across the UK who will allow you to party until 2am! All of this can be finished off with a Silent disco from The Silent Disco Hire Company followed by the stumble back to your boutique bell tent which will be ready and waiting for you! Our caterers are on hand to serve the obligatory BIG English breakfast bap the next morning washed down with a cuppa to nurse your sore heads!Dare to be different and put on a celebration that will leave your guests marvelling over it for years to come!
