Marquee Hire

Introduction To Marquee Hire In Sussex

For charming outside parties, marquees will always be in fashion.  They are a perfect solution – allowing one to hold a party out in the air, but still be ready for that rainy English weather that pops out of nowhere.  There are a number of companies who offer marquee hire in Sussex.  They offer a variety of different types of marquee, with different accessories all at different prices.

Types of Marquee

Most marquee companies offer traditional and framed marquees.  Traditional marquees are considered more elegant and stylish, however they are less effective in terms of space and costs.  Guy ropes and poles are used to set up the tent – taking up a lot of space that could otherwise be used for furniture and guests.  Framed marquees are built around a skeleton (usually made up of aluminium) that does not require ropes and poles, saving space.  Framed marquees have the disadvantage of not following the classic aesthetic guidelines, therefore not being up to everyone's taste, but they are more suited for larger parties.

Each marquee company also offers its own original type of marquee, for the clients that do not fit in with trends, varying from sophisticated capris to exotic Chinese hats and modern Losbergers.  It is important, before planning an event that includes a marquee, to calculate the exact size and duration of it.  Whether it's large or small and if it's going to end while it's still warm or will it require a marquee that ensures a bearable temperature all through the night.  It's also a shame to lose sight of what a nice landscape can do to a party, so it's a good idea to try to take that into consideration when planning a marquee event in a nice location – use a marquee that puts the nice view to good use.
