Tips For Hiring A Marquee for Your Party or Function

Posted on Updated on

Marquee hire for parties allows an organization to hold an outdoor event any time of the year without worrying about it being ruined or called off because of the unpredictable British weather. Rain or shine, your wedding, birthday party, beer festival or sporting event can proceed, as planned, in comfort. New designs are emerging, such as dome-shaped tents and marquees in black instead of white. This increases the number of possible choices and effects.

Black canopies look very classy. They are perfect for Halloween parties or for blacking out a dance party and making ultraviolet lighting, lasers and disco balls stand out. They are also useful for displaying a slide or video presentation, perhaps in the forecourt of one of Britain’s most famous museums. Day or night, they look very sleek. What a perfect venue for a rooftop party.

Domed tents are surprisingly versatile and they look very exotic. They may be small, say, just big enough for a bride, groom and vicar, or they can be big enough to house a charity ball. In the past, domes have been used as the venue for launch parties and birthday celebrations. Lining the interior of a dome-shaped canopy with a deep, rich fabric such as red or purple crushed velvet and illuminating the inside of the marquee by candlelight produces a very dramatic and mysterious effect.

Your event may be heated if it is chilly outside. In countries, this is more likely than not. The canvas may be open on one or more sides or it may be fully enclosed. Coloured lighting can provide an extra dimension of atmosphere. Lit from the inside at night, your marquee glows eerily, making an impression on passing traffic.

These temporary canvas buildings come in different shapes and sizes. Small ones shelter a handful of guests at a barbecue or a group of musicians at a birthday party. They may also be big enough to hold hundreds of people at a music event or charity function.

There are many fun surprises that may be hidden away inside your covered event. Bouncy castles and fireworks add a more festive element. Chocolate fountains and hog roasts form a tempting segment of your catering arrangements.

The weather is many things, but predictable is not one of them. Planning an event or party outdoors is anything but straightforward. Marquee hire makes it easier. When it is cold, as it can be any evening throughout the year or in the Spring, Autumn, Winter and, in fact, Summer, when it may be cool all throughout the day, you can apply heating inside to take the chill off. Different colours of canvas or lighting can be employed to dramatic effects when the sun goes down.
