Choosing your perfect hire company

Do I need to hire a Marquee?

Organising an event can be tricky enough – and that’s without the stress of picking the perfect venue.

Regardless of the kind of party you’re throwing, one of the best options you can opt for is marquee hire. A marquee or gazebo enables you to cater to almost any kind of celebration while providing plenty of options for layout and your own style of decoration.

When hiring a venue for a party, meeting or even a wedding, the capacity for guests can be limited (depending on how big the venue is). Large event tents afford you some flexibility with the number of guests you can house at any one time.

Marquees can also be set up in a variety of locations, allowing you the freedom to have your party in a more picturesque setting. Holding events on farms or beaches can make the whole experience that more exciting for you and your guests.

As well as customising the location where you’re having your event, you are also able to specify the design or look and feel of your gazebo. Even with minimal customisation, gazebos make for an arresting sight. They often come with flooring and windows and can make for a welcome change to a typical function room.

Setting up your event tent wherever you like also enables you to have added privacy – a marquee in a unique place lets you do away with disruptions that may occur when renting a room in a busy hotel or pub. Many marquees also come with a variety of additional services – these can be anything from customised interiors or lighting to themed decorations and services to enhance your event.

How will the Marquee be set up?

The company that you hire your marquee from will visit the site you’ve chosen and take measurements. After they know the dimensions of the area, they will suggest the best marquees and layouts for your event.

Once you’ve decided on the type of event tent you want to hire, your chosen company will send you a quote. They will also suggest dates and times to put up and take down the marquee.

Marquees are usually erected a couple of days before the event and taken down a few days after the event is done. Your company should be able to accommodate dates and times that work for you.

What types of Marquee are there?

With the variety of marquees available, there is bound to be something to match whatever event you’re throwing. Below are some of the types of marquee you can expect to pick from.

  • Trapeze marquees are an impressive type of marquee that is held up with ‘tension rods.’ Because of their design, trapeze marquees are very wind resistant, while being stylish at the same time.
  • Framed marquees are held up by an external frame, meaning they do not need support on the inside. As there is no need for supporting poles, the layout of these marquees can be whatever you desire.
  • Regular marquees are constructed using ropes and poles. Their vintage style is good for garden parties. They have an elegant appearance and can be styled on the inside to look particularly modern.
  • Chinese hat marquees have the appearance of traditional Chinese hats. They typically lack any sides but can have these added if needed. They are a good type of marquee for a wide range of events.
  • A stretch-10 marquee has an eye-catching design that makes them very desirable for festivals or similar occasions. They can be set up in any location and are well-fortified against the weather.

How much does Marquee Hire cost?

Due to the number of variables, the cost of marquee hire is not particularly straightforward. The actual price of the marquee hire will depend on flooring, delivery, lighting, lining and costs for setting up. To get an accurate idea of how much it would cost for you to hire a marquee, you should measure the site you wish to set up the marquee in (although this is often done for you).

You should also consider a few other factors to help you work out how big the marquee is that you need, too. Things to think about are how many people are attending the event, whether you will need a dancefloor (or tables for food) and if additional spaces are required.

How do I select the best Marquee Hire company?

So, what should you keep an eye out for when searching for a marquee hire company? Bark makes it easy to look at different professionals and get quotes quickly. You can start the hiring process by narrowing down your choices to a few favourites, but you should ask a few questions before you do so. Here’s a list of things to ask:

  • Can you show me some examples of past work?
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
  • What does the hire price include?
  • Does the marquee come dressed?
  • Do you also do furniture and lighting hire?
  • Can I change my order after booking?
  • What are your payment terms?

Consider these points and go from here. This will enable you to pick the right marquee hire the first time around.

If you’re looking for a sheltered area for an outdoor event, marquee hire is ideal. Marquees can be used for many different things, from a seating area at a garden party to a dance floor at a festival. They can provide shelter if it rains as well as shade from the sun, making marquees a great addition to any event.

The length of time that it takes to put up a marquee depends on the size of the marquee and type of floor that you opt for. A small marquee of 6m x 6m may take around 2 hours to erect whilst a large marquee of 6m x 18 may take up to 6 hours to construct. Your marquee hire company should be able to advise you of timings when you request a quote for marquee hire.

You do not typically need planning permission to erect a marquee in your garden. The exception to this would be if the marquee was going to be in place for longer than 28 days. If the marquee will be remaining for longer than 28 days, you may need to apply for planning permission. Contact your Local Planning Authority for advice if you are unsure.
