One tipi will accommodate up to 70 people seated, two tipis linked will accommodate up to 120 and three tipis up to 150. More people can be accommodated if formal dining is not required. We can design floor plans around your exact specifications and will always work with you to agree the best layout and number of tipis required based on your own event.
The sailcloth tents can be expanded to suit weddings from 50 – 250 people. We will suggest the best size when sending you a quote based on the number of guests attending.
They cost about the same and are used for weddings and events, but other than that they are completely different! Our tents have no metal work inside and look breathtaking both inside and out. You will never get the same “wow” reaction with a marquee!
Yes absolutely, we just need to make sure some special security measures are in place to keep equipment safe.
Yes, of course! We can also advise on, or fully arrange other suppliers such as caterers, DJ’s, bands and bars. We are very used to helping customers plan their events and can give loads of advice and tips.
Firstly, don’t worry, damage is very rare and our tents are very resilient! However, once we have set up the equipment you are responsible for it for the duration of the hire and the cost of any damage. You can however opt to take our damage waiver (at 2% of the rental cost), which would remove this liability for any damages except for an excess of £500. If you do not opt for the damage waiver we strongly recommend you taking out your own insurance.
It will take a team of 4-6 people about 6-8 hours to get an average event fully set up. Naturally this varies on the size of event and how much interior decoration is being included.
Normally we set up one or two days prior your event and take down one to two days afterwards. We will do our best to work around your schedule for the event, and can discuss extended hire periods as needed.
Yes, as long as they are not placed within one metre of the canvas.
Yes, as long as you do not use anything that could pierce the canvas or damage the poles.
Yes a little, though they are more for effect and ambience, blow heaters can be supplied for more effective heating.
Yes, the tipis make for really cosy spaces with the sides down, and we have both transparent and white walls for the sailcloth tents. Your tents will be set up to your exact specification and we will discuss and suggest all manner of options with you to make your event perfect.
Yes, we can supply you with all that you need. Any items we don’t stock we would sub hire or provide you with full details of where to source. Of course you can still just hire the tents and make your own arrangements for everything else if you prefer.
Yes our tents are watertight in most normal conditions. We are on call throughout the hire period and in very heavy rain or wind we can come out to adjust straps, sides and links as needed.
The tents all have their own wind loadings depending on their size and set up. In times of high winds we would discuss with you any steps we need to take to ensure everyones safety and at what point the tents would need to be evacuated. Erecting or dismantling the tents in high winds can be tough and so we may request changing the set up or take down date around the weather forecasts.
Yes, snow is no issue for us and makes for a breath-taking venue. We would need to clear the ground before setting the tents up and keep them heated throughout to prevent snow settling on the canvas. You would therefore need to consider the added fuel cost to keep them heated throughout the hire period.
