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.
