A small marquee is a practical and affordable option for garden parties and celebrations.
Small marquees are a practical and affordable option for garden parties and celebrations. They’re just the right size to provide enough space for your guests to enjoy themselves while being easy enough to set up and take down that you won’t feel like you need a degree in engineering to manage it.
The small marquee is also great value for money, which means you can put on more events with the same budget. In addition, it can be used repeatedly, so it makes sense to invest in something durable rather than spend time setting up something new each time. You may also choose other equipment such as lighting or heating options to have everything needed for your event – this could save you time looking into hiring all these extras separately! Finally, our small marquees come with removable walls or floors depending on what sort of weather conditions we expect during your event; this means there will always be somewhere dry (is) where people can shelter if necessary!
If you're thinking about hiring a marquee for your next garden party or family celebration, a small marquee could be the perfect option for you.
If you’re thinking about hiring a marquee for your next garden party or family celebration, a small marquee could be the perfect option for you. Small marquees are ideal for events with 50 guests and can be erected on most surfaces. They’re very easy to set up and dismantle with two people, and their lightweight design makes them ideal for moving around the garden or backyard.
Small marquees are available from 5m wide to 10m wide in length (measured along the longest side). A 5m small wide marquee will comfortably accommodate 15-20 guests within its interior space. If necessary, large tables can also be set up outside of this area under the canopy. Small marquees range in size from 5m to 10m in width (measured along their longest side), which means they have enough room inside to comfortably accommodate 20-50 guests, depending on how many tables are placed within it.
Choosing the right size marquee
Choosing the right marquee size for your garden is an important part of the process, so let’s look at a few things you should consider.
- Measure your garden: The first thing to do is measure your garden and calculate how many people can fit it. If you’re hiring a small marquee, this should be quite straightforward – count how many square meters are available, then divide by 2.5 to figure out how many people this will hold comfortably (rounding up). For example, if there were 12m2 available, then 24 people could fit in!
- Choose based on style: Once you know how many people can go into your space comfortably, choose whether or not you want any extra space around them for chairs, etc., then decide what style of the tent would suit best both inside as well as outside (check out our site for more information on these).
Party tents and gazebos
Party tents and gazebos can be a great solution for small events, but it’s important to understand the difference.
A party tent is essentially a large marquee you set up on the ground. It’s a great choice if you don’t have much space in your garden or backyard, as it requires very little space to anchor down and won’t block any pathways. However, because of its size and structure, it will take up some room inside your home—this can result in a little room for dancing!
A gazebo is smaller than a party tent and doesn’t cover quite as much ground (although they are still fairly sizeable). They’re also portable enough to be moved around easily without needing an extra vehicle like some other styles of marquees to do. However, this may mean there isn’t enough space inside to accommodate everyone who wants to dance!
Marquee hire costs and extras.
The price of hiring a marquee will depend on the size and length of hire and any extras that you request. When hiring one, you will need to pay for delivery and collection of the marquee (if not supplied) and tables and chairs if required. You may also require additional lights or heating if your venue does not have enough natural light or heat due to its location or weather conditions.
You should check with your local council about whether you need insurance for your marquee hire – failure to do so could result in fines from the board if there is an accident involving someone injured while on their property.
