Essential questions

As a guide to help you organise your event or party we have compiled a list of questions to ask your self when hiring a marquee. Also we have provided an approximate size guide which will give you an idea of what size marquee you will need to hire. This guide is especially useful when organising large events such as weddings, corporate parties and award ceremonies.

Ask yourself the following questions when hiring a marquee:

  • How many guests am I inviting?
  • Are my guests going to be seated or is this a standing auditorium style event?
  • Do I require extra space for a dance floor, DJ, band, bar unit and/or staging ect?
  • Do I need to hire tables and chairs, and do I require table cloths and chair covers?
  • Do I require marquee lining?
  • Do I need a mobile bar to serve drinks?
  • Do we need mobile toilet facilities?
  • Do I require electricity?
  • Do I need to hire marquee heaters?
  • Do I need a catering kitchen tent to prepare food?

Size calculator

Our size guides for seated events have been based on people being seated at 6ft rectangle tables with 6 to 8 people per table depending on your layout. There is also another option of 5ft and 6ft round tables which can seat approximately 8 to 10 people per table; however round tables take up more space as you can’t line them up in rows end to end.

If you are unsure then book a site survey just provide us with your requirements and we will do the rest.
