Our Essex marquee is an original vintage one, with all the character (and a few patches!) one would expect. 
This marquee is 40′ wide and 50′ long, and can seat about 110 at round tables with a dance floor, bar and stage and approximately 150 at trestle tables. 
All the poles on this traditional canvas marquee are red and the central poles are 10′ apart.

All capacity numbers are approximate as there are many variables to consider. A reception/ bar area may be needed. The choice of round or long tables influences the size of the marquee, as round tables take up more space than rectangular ones.

All traditional marquees need at least 1m of grass all around the tent to accommodate the ropes. All marquee walls can be unhooked and folded back.

Hire prices include erecting and dismantling the marquees, laying matting and dance floors and hanging lights and bunting. They do not include setting out furniture.

Transport costs are calculated depending on distance and quantity of items.
