Weddings and Receptions

When you hire a marquee for your wedding, it typically allows you to book it several months ahead of time, and have plenty of indoor space for the wedding and reception, including ample room for catering and dancing. Many UK companies offer marquee hire, and weddings are one of the most popular events when it comes to hiring one. It's easy to hire the right sized marquee, and if you think a marquee is just a large tent, think again. Marquees come with windows, awnings, rooms and spaces that can be partitioned off, and of course provide protection from wind, rain and the sun. The marquee company will put up the marquee and take it down afterwards, and this can be done easily in a few hours, depending on the marquee size. It's no surprise that it's become a popular choice for couples who just don't have the indoor space themselves, and don't want a church wedding.

Other Reasons To Hire a Marquee

However, you don't need to be tying the knot in order to benefit from the temporary use of a marquee in your back garden, school grounds or company outside space. A marquee makes the ideal venue for a children's party or family reunion, and if you are hosting a garage sale, baked goods sale, car boot sale or promotional event and are worried about the weather, it can be an affordable option. Many sporting events use marquees to give them some temporary indoor space, such as the Grand National, British Open golf championship and Wimbledon, and it's an easy way to accommodate hundreds, even thousands of extra guests.

Corporate Events

Marques are also used by many companies for temporary corporate events, such as workshops, meetings and presentations, as well as team building exercises or social gatherings. Hiring a marquee is a quick and easy process for any company, regardless of size, and a marquee can be ordered at short notice, used for as long as is needed, and then dismantled. Some companies even provide a marquee manager for the day of your event, to make sure everything runs smoothly. And if you need a marquee regularly, many companies allow you to crate an account to make the process even easier.
