Garden parties are our speciality!

Our story began by borrowing a local scout tent for a family party in our garden back in 2007. From our fledgling business hosting garden parties and helping village fetes we have expanded over the years to weddings, festivals and film work. But we retain our passion for small celebrations for family and friends, and this is where Vintage Marquees is unique.

We have an exclusive selection of small canvas marquees from vintage camping tents and bell tents to marquees of all sizes to fit in even the smallest garden. With natural sisal ropes and wooden poles our marquees are pretty and understated with no PVC or plastic in sight! Almost all our marquees are genuine vintage ones, dating back to the 1970’s and before.

Our stock includes natural sisal matting and all the extras from vintage plank top tables and wooden chairs to fire pits, fairy lights and festoons, rustic barrel tables, cotton bunting and more.

"Thank you to Vintage Marquees for your friendly service and for the vintage tent and extras which were perfect for our garden party, everyone loved the old canvas marquee!"


"Firstly thank you. You and your team have made this whole experience effortless and stress-free! The marquee was stunning and perfect size and I am so glad we came to you because it looked so much better than a modern, metal frame marquee. Your team were efficient and professional and so friendly!"
