• Our Marquees are designed and crafted by traditional artisans. Each is totally unique, you cannot hire them from any other company (in the world!)
  • The Marquees feature unusually tall roof sections that provide light and airy event spaces, whatever the weather.
  • Traditional craft features include carved wooden finials, arched wooden doorways and hand appliquéd wall sections.
  • We also offer a stunning bar built from reclaimed wood that complements the canvas and timbers of the marquees. The wood theme extends to a polished wood dance-floor and additional decor and styling options.
  • We are flexible in our client approach and can provide you with as much or as little as you need, without the hard sell.

About Us…

At Alternative Events we take a creative approach to marquee hire and have created a stunning collection of unique Marquee’s. Each is made from natural cotton canvas and sustainably sourced wood. Our Marquee’s have bags of style and feature stunning curves and lofty roof sections. These design details make them feel light and airy, and on sunny days the walling sections of the Marquee’s can be completely removed to create a real al fresco dining experience.

We can accommodate small or large numbers, from a birthday party in the garden for 30 people up to a large wedding reception or festival tent tent for 200.

Our Marquee’s come with with white fairy lights, globes and festoon lighting and the best quality hessian style flooring. We price the Marquees with lighting and flooring as a package, so you can see a complete price from the start. We pride ourselves on being transparent in our costs and flexible in our approach.

We have a selection of handmade bunting in different designs to fit the tents and enjoy providing additional styling services, bar hire and décor.

What Makes Us Unique…
