Flexible, adaptable, beautiful

Party marquees Party marquee hire traditional pole marqueesWe can supply our marquees with either matted flooring or boarded flooring with carpet; they can be lined or unlined and decorated or themed to your individual vision.

Secured in place by guy ropes, traditional pole tents need to be situated on a grassed area. If your marquee will be on hard-standing, such as a tennis court or car park, you’ll require a frame tent. Speak to our team to discuss the various marquee options that we are able to offer.

Beware pole tents are seasonal

As traditional pole tents are secured using guy ropes and tall central poles they are not ideal for use in high winds. Combine winds with the rain soaked ground into which the supporting guy ropes are affixed and you could have a recipe for disaster.

For these reasons we do not recommend using traditional pole tents during the winter months (generally between October and May).

Frame tent marquees are a fantastic alternative for events held during the cooler, wetter months. Click here to find out more.

 We would highly recommend Iain and Inside Outside. All through the process, Iain was absolutely amazing. The marquee was stunning and exactly what we had envisioned. He really went beyond our expectations, treating every whim with absolute professionalism. He even managed to commission a portaloo company to make bespoke loos for us which was incredible. Everything went without a hitch and we were very impressed by the service he offered and would recommend him to anyone.
