We go through 5 amazing reasons to consider hiring a marquee for your next big event!

Marquees are some of the most versatile event venues you can have. Here are 5 top reasons why you should consider having a marquee for your bespoke event.

1. Whenever, Wherever...

We love a good Shakira lyric. One of the best things about having a marquee for hire for your event is that it allows you to hold it wherever you want. As long as you have the space and the right permission, of course, any patch of land can become a party place. This gives you a huge amount of freedom, and means that you can tailor your event to be exactly what you want it to be. 

2. It’s a Blank Canvas

Following on from our above point, when it comes to weddings, parties or any kind of corporate function, it’s nice to be able to add your own unique stamp on your event. Hiring a marquee is a great way to do this as it offers a blank canvas that you can make your own. You may have help from the hire company with some of the logistics, but the finer details and the design is often down to you, giving you free reign to really create an amazing theme for your big day. In short, a marquee is as individual as you are.

3. Combine Indoors and Outdoors

Not sure whether you want an outdoor or indoor event? Well, with a marquee you have the best of both worlds. Marquees often come with walls that you can lower if the weather is fine, but if the weather isn’t being quite as kind, then you can have them up. They may also be transparent, which means that you can still see the amazing view, but you are protected against the elements. 

4. The More The Merrier

Marquees are often built to order, so the size will be dependent on your needs. This means if you are looking to organise a large event, with lots of guests, then you can have enough space to fit them all in. You can also choose your own catering and drinks, something that you don’t always get when you choose a permanent venue. Perfect for events where food is everything and you need at least 3 different types of cuisine because you simply can’t decide...just us? Okay then...

Another consideration is that having a marquee puts in you in charge of timings; assuming there aren’t noise restrictions on the site, you can choose to party all night long!

5. A Greater Control of the Budget

Budgeting?? What is that? Okay fine, it is necessary to keep an eye on the finances. With any event, it’s so easy for the budget to spiral out of control. Once you take into account the beautiful building, and their internal staff, their caterers...it can all become very damaging to one’s bank account. But with a marquee, you can shop around for the best prices for decorations, catering, location etc. In other words, you give yourself a bit more financial flexibility. Spend a little, spend a lot! It’s entirely up to you.
