Q1 – What is included in the website marquee prices?
Pricing is per event spanning a single weekend
The prices are all inclusive of matting, linings, uplighters, fairy lights etc.
Extra items such as tables, chairs, dance floors, stages, bars, toilets, generators, catering marquees, bespoke linings etc are priced separately.
Q2 – How much deposit do we need?
We will ask you for a 30% deposit, this can be spread out in three payments over a period of six months. The balance is due one week before the marquee event
Q3 – Do we have to have our own insurance?
Insurance against damage, breakages, vandalism or any unexpected loss, etc. is the responsibility of the hirer once the marquee is completed and is a requirement of of our terms and conditions.
Q4 – What can happen in high winds?
The marquees have been structurally assessed to take winds up to 50 mph. They are secured with large iron stakes and multiple ropes. In windier seasons or when high winds are forecast, additional stakes and ropes will be added. The design is traditional and has stood the test of time. When wind speeds are high, it may not be possible to build or dismantle a marquee safely.
Q5 – Can the marquee catch fire?
All fabrics are fire retardant to BS7837
Q6 – When do you come and build the marquee?
We would typically like to have completed the installation at least 24 hours before the event. Typically we will build the marquee two or three days before the event, installation rarely takes more than one day.
Q7 – When will the marquee be dismantled?
At your convenience but typically within a day or two after the event – including weekends and bank holidays. Marquees in public venues are typically dismantled the day after the event
Q8 – Will the marquee get cold?
The marquee can be heated to whatever temperature you prefer using an indirect heater
Q9 – Can the marquee walls be taken down in warm weather?
The walls can be drawn back to suit the weather and closed as it gets cooler.
Q10 – Can you put the marquee on bumpy or sloping ground?
Not on a ski slope! When the ground is bumpy, sloping or uneven we can build a wooden floor which follows the ground contours. This will incur extra cost.
