Choosing the right marquee for you – whatever the occasion or event – is important. You need to know that you have the space to accommodate your guests and ensure they are as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Conversely, you don’t want to make a choice and find the marquee far too big for the amount of room you have. You can’t tell guests to go away and come back another day, so your decision needs to be the right one.With all this in mind, let’s take a look at the different marquee options available.

Traditional Style Marquee

Ideal for weddings, a formal corporate event or a classic garden party, a traditional style marquee gives you a great deal of room vertically and horizontally. What’s more, the canvas and wood elements of a traditional marquee are utterly elegant and carry a vintage, retro feel.

Robust and waterproof, a traditional canvas marquee also provides protection from the unpredictable British weather, so guests always have somewhere to retreat to.
