Managing the unexpected!

While we prefer to plan well in advance, we are aware of the challenges you face when organising large corporate events, especially when plans can evolve late in the day. Even with the most meticulously well-planned event, the unexpected can happen.  One of the biggest headaches event planners and managers face is the sudden need for additional marquee space.  At the last minute! 

You might get a last-minute request from a client or guest numbers could increase before your corporate event.  You may have even been let down by an existing supplier and are in urgent need of help. Is this all sounding familiar? We’ve been there and our expert team have saved the day with a perfect marquee for lots of late bookings.  

In these situations, adding more structures may seem a straightforward solution but this does come with its own set of challenges.  We can work with you to make sure you have all the space you need for your next event.

Brighton Marathon uses a range of temporary structures

As one of the largest marquee providers, we have a vast range of structures for any event. Our small corporate event marquees range in widths from 3m up to 9m.  These are all modular and are built to your exact requirements in 3m length increments. for example, a 3m x 27, 6m x 45, 9m x 60m.

Our medium marquees range between 10m to 20m in width. With our largest event structure spans up to 30m wide.  These flexible marquees are available in 10m, 12m, 15m, 20m, 25m and 30m widths.  Again, as they are  modular they are extended in 5m length increments. such as a 12m x 45m, 20m x 70, 30m x 120m structure.  This provides a great deal of flexibility for event managers.

How much notice do we need to provide a marquee?

Peak marquee hire season covers the busy summer months of June, July and August. Like all large marquee hire companies we have big contracts to fulfil during this period and our order books are near capacity.

Field and Lawn’s installation teams are directly employed, in-house. This means during summer we are working across the country, supplying events such as the Royal Highland Show, Glastonbury, Parklife, the London Marathon and many more. It’s best to enquire about marquee availability as early as possible.

If your event takes place in summer, we typically start to receive enquires early in the year. If you’re attending a large event and need a marquee, we may already be supplying other customers at that event, so it’s never too late to ask for a quote and check our tent availability.
If you’re looking for a marquee in the “shoulder” months of March, April and May through to September and October, we can offer more flexibility. If you are looking for last-minute marquee hire, Field and Lawn still may be able to help you. Contact your local branch to enquire about the latest availability.
