FAQ

Q1 – What is included in the website marquee prices?

We will ask you for a 30% deposit, 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 requirment of of our terms and conditions.

Q4 – What can happen in high winds?

The marquees have been structurally assessed to take winds up to 60 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.
