Our Party Marquees are good-looking enough to make interior canopy linings unnecessary. Also, all are inter-connectable with each other and with the garden/pavilion tents, making them ideal venues for parties.
A feature of the two pole round end marquees is the fact that we have eliminated the need for a ridge pole, normally the weakest point of a marquee as it does not 'give' in a wind. By replacing this pole with webbing, the Belle Tent marquee is a more stable structure. By design the canvas is so cut as to allow us to give the two pole marquees a lovely curve between the poles. See Here for a customer review.
All the two pole marquees are double purpose as the canopies are laced together in sections, enabling the centre section to be removed and to use the two ends as a round marquee with a single pole. Extra centre sections and main poles can also be added to make even larger marquees.
Belle Tent marquee width sizes start at 20' (6m) diameter, and go up to 30'(9m) diameter. The length can be extended indefinitely by adding middle sections. The side walls are 7'(2.13m) high as standard but we can make them higher if needed.
Large marquees of sizes 30'(9m) diameter are erected by the use of pulleys on the main poles and are a little more complicated to put up than the small marquees, which use the simple 'push-up' method.
We can offer add-on extensions which attach to the marquees for extra space for a stage or buffet, freeing up the main body of the marquee for dancing. Please state if an extension may be needed when ordering your marquee as modifications need to be added to enable the extension to be attached.
All of these marquees come complete with canopy, side walls, wooden poles, guy ropes, decorative turned wooden finials for the top of the wall poles, steel stakes, wooden pegs and storage bags for the canvas. It will be necessary to purchase a sledge hammer to put up the marquees, these are obtainable from builders merchants.
Please note: As we get very busy during the spring and summer months, it is advisable to order marquees in the autumn for delivery the following spring, particularly for marquees using colour canvas as we are dependent on our supplier having the colour in stock. If not available, waiting times for a new batch to be processed can take up to 2 months. However, if you have left things a bit late, it is always worth contacting us to check if we can fit you in.
Colours currently available: olive green, sand, blue, chocolate and natural white. Please Contact Us for colour samples.
Thinking of starting up a marquee hire company?
Due to our growing workload we stopped hiring tents and marquees ourselves, preferring instead to concentrate on making them. We now find that as we are no longer in competition with other people who are hiring out our tents, it is very much in our interests that these companies succeed. We have a small but growing amount of small companies hiring out our tents and marquees, mainly in the south and west of the UK. Their details and locations are available at Hire Tents.
We are constantly being asked if they are available in other areas, including the South East, all of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland.
For anyone wishing to start hiring Belle Tents marquees, we will be happy to give free start-up marketing advice and a promotional link from our website. Also, depending on which marquee you order, we can sometimes provide photographs to enable you to start promoting your business before your marquee is even made.
All of our marquees are made to order in our own workshops, please call 01840 261556 or contact us for current waiting times.
