Graduation marquee hire

celebrate a special occasion in style.

Premium marquees for any education milestone

Graduating university, leaving school or heading off to a prom is a wonderful occasion.  Celebrate in style with a Field and Lawn marquee! We provide high quality marquees for schools, colleges and universities nationwide to help mark any special occasion.  

First class marquee hire

Our marquees provide the perfect backdrop for graduation ceremonies, leavers’ days, open days, exhibitions and proms.

We provide a full turnkey service to provide everything you need to host a spectacular, safe event.  Our graduation marquees can be lined in your academic branding, carpeted and fitted out to the highest of standards, including a full audio visual specification.  

How much space will I need?

Graduation ceremonies can be grand affairs that require a significant amount of space to accommodate guests. We can provide a range of structures, our largest will comfortably accommodate up to 3,000 people.  Our clearspan marquees range in size between 10m to 20m in width. With large event structures available in 10m, 12m, 15m, 20m, 25m and 30m widths.  Again, as they are modular, they are extended in 5m length increments to provide the perfect space for your graduation event. 

As a rule of thumb, a simple 10m x 15m  marquee structure will provide enough standing space for around 200 people. A 15m x 20m marquee will give standing space for approximately 400 people.  If your guests are going to be seated, double the space to allow for chairs and tables.

Our marquees can be fully equipped with top-of-the-range furniture, flooring, and lighting, ensuring you can celebrate in style!   We can further customise your marquee with windows, access ramps and bespoke finishes and branding to your exact requirements.

We can install anywhere on your campus, no matter the ground condition.  We can build around existing obstacles, create covered, linked walkways and create a completely accessible structure for your event. We supply:

Create a great first impression! If you are looking to hire a marquee to impress potential students, look no further than a premium marquee from Field and Lawn.

Why choose to hire a marquee for graduation?

Traditional indoor venues might be limited in their capacity, availability and flexibility. This can make it difficult to accommodate students and their guests comfortably or push the costs up during peak season. This is where marquee hire can help! From small and intimate ceremonies to extravagant events, a temporary structure can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Freshers fairs: The freshers fair is a big event that happens in the first few weeks of the university life.  It brings together clubs, societies, local businesses and the university community to showcase what’s on offer.  We can provide individual marquees or large, open-plan marquee halls for these types of events.

School leavers days: We can provide the perfect marquee to celebrate students moving into the next chapters of their education.   

School proms:  The prom has made the trip from across ‘the pond.’ It’s an event cemented into the calendar here. We can provide a bespoke marquee for proms on almost any ground surface, if you are looking to hold a prom at your School.
