Although it is a year round industry, the summer is still the most in-demand season of the year for most marquee hire services - and with so many people now using marquees as venues for weddings and other events, it is important to get in your enquiry as early as you can.

Marquee hire companies can be booked up many months in advance, so if you have a date in mind, the earlier you contact potential suppliers, the better.

Marquees vary massively in size – ranging from small canopies that are ideal for private gatherings, to giant structures that can accommodate thousands of people. They are perfect for a huge variety of events – especially when you consider the unpredictability of the weather in the UK.

They come in a range of shapes, designs and styles – frame and traditional pole marquees are the two most commonly used.

  • Outdoor storage
  • Christenings
  • Temporary buildings
  • Birthday parties
  • Bar mitzvahs

Marquee hire offers you the flexibility to choose to have your event wherever you want it, and the opportunity to create the perfect atmosphere and mood to suit your occasion. Many hire companies also offer a range of furnishings, flooring, lighting and décor options to enhance your guests' experience.


It is now commonplace for many events and weddings to follow a specific theme, and by using the right props and furniture, the results can be spectacular. When considering hiring a marquee, you are limited only by your own imagination and your budget. If you have an idea and are unsure of the next step, then you may want to contact a furniture hire, venue styling or specialist theming company to help with this. These professionals will be able to give you advice and make suggestions on what to include and how to make the most of your budget.

Wonderful things can be done to the inside of a marquee to make it look beautiful. The use of lighting, flooring and interior linings can help to create an amazing atmosphere for your guests to enjoy. If desired, the combination of an LED lit dance floor, laser lights, smoke machine and interior lining could make the marquee's interior feel more like a nightclub. If you are looking to create a more relaxed atmosphere, then you could use more appropriate mood lighting with a starlight lining to create the illusion of looking up into a clear night sky, whilst being protected from the elements outside.

Interior linings come in a huge range of colours that can be chosen to match the theme or colour scheme of your event. This can be fantastic if you are planning a wedding and want a colour scheme to be consistent throughout the whole wedding. The colour scheme that has been chosen for the flowers and the bridesmaid dresses can also be applied to the chair covers, the lighting and of course your interior linings. Your marquee rental can be decorated exquisitely for your event.
