Some Help and Advice

When booking your marquee with us:

  • Confirm guest numbers

  • Confirm furniture type and quantities (Allow for catering)
  • Agree internal layout of marquee (dance floor, entrances etc.)
  • Agree colours and style of interior decoration (samples to colour match)
  • Confirm payment terms (deposit etc.)


  • Be sure that we are informed of the position of underground and overhead services (e.g. drains, gas pipes, etc.)
  • Ensure your power supply is adequate, if in doubt consult a qualified electrical contractor
  • Consider fire precautions, we recommend providing fire extinguishers
  • Keep all openings and doors closed in windy conditions
  • Consult us – we are recognised under the MUTAmarq scheme to be able to advise on safety in your marquee


  • Inform us if you need the marquee in place prior to the eve of the event
  • Stagger the arrival of the various contractors, e.g. caterers are unable to set up before the roof lining is in place
  • Beware of confusion between metric and imperial measurements
  • Update us of changes to guest numbers, dates etc. prior to the event
