What to consider when hiring marquees for film & TV production

Lights, Camera, Marquees!

Hiring a marquee for filming is an ideal solution for on-location shoots. Our production marquees provide shelter and flexibility, they are indispensable in supporting TV and film production companies. However, choosing the right marquee for your film or TV production involves careful consideration of various factors. In this blog post, we’ll explore key aspects to keep in mind when hiring marquees for your next production!

Why install a marquee on set or location while you’re filming?

Marquees are incredibly versatile structures making them perfect for any aspect of film & TV production. We can supply marquees suitable for everything from sets at the forefront of filming to back of house structures for actors and production teams. This includes:

  • Makeup & wardrobe marquees – Designated areas for makeup, costume design and hair styling. Just add dressing tables and clothes rails for the perfect behind the scenes experience.
  • Canteen & crew catering space – Ensure your team remains fully fuelled with space for dining and catering. Our marquees provide a comfortable and functional space for both your team and your caterers.
  • Sets – Our marquees provide a blank canvas for any set. Whether you choose to build a set inside one of our marquees or use it in a scene itself our team can work with you to design a marquee that provides the perfect look and feel for your scene.
  • Green rooms – Marquees provide designated additional space to have a green room where actors, guests and crew can rest between filming. With additional heating and furniture rental from Field & Lawn, the space can be made perfectly comfortable and relaxing.
  • Production offices – Marquees can provide additional space to house production offices on site. Often production offices are required to help with the administrative tasks that come with managing a film production.
  • Storage space – There is understandably going to be a lot of equipment required on the set of your film or TV show. Installing a marquee on site ensures your equipment is protected from the elements remaining safe and dry.

Here are some of the top things to consider when hiring a clearspan marquee for your film or TV production:

Scale of your production:

One of the first considerations you’ll need to think about when hiring a marquee is its size. The size of the marquee will depend on the scale of your production and the space available at the filming location. Consider the number of crew members, equipment, and scenes that need to be accommodated within the marquee. It’s essential to take everything into consideration and ensure you have enough space for your operations. At Field & lawn we can supply a wide range of marquee sizes, from smaller marquees to larger marquees we can install a structure that fits your space perfectly.

Customisation Options:

Every film or TV production has its unique requirements. At Field & Lawn, we can offer a wide range of customisation options to meet the specific needs of your project. This includes a huge range of carpets, vinyl flooring and specialist surfaces, ABS solid sides and glass panels, lighting fixtures, HVAC solutions, furniture rental, interior tent linings, internal fit-out options, and equipment rental.

The flexibility to adapt the marquee to various uses such as hair and makeup tents or green room marquees enhances its functionality and ensures it seamlessly integrates with the creative vision of the production.

Duration of Use:

It’s a good idea to consider the duration for which the marquee will be needed. Some productions may require a marquee for an extended period, while others may need it for specific scenes. At Field & Lawn, we can offer marquees for both short-term hire and long-term rental so you can choose stunning marquees that suits the needs of your production. No matter how long your filming schedule is.

Power Supply and Electrical Needs:

Consider the availability of power sources on-site and whether additional generators or power distribution units may be required. We provide a completely holistic solution at Field & Lawn meaning we can assess your needs and supply power distribution to your production including full lighting displays.

Aesthetics and layout of your marquee:

If the marquee is going to be used as part of a set, you will need to ensure that every detail of the interior and exterior of the marquee is fully aligned with the overall look and feel of the scenes. Some productions may also require branding or signage on the structure, at Field & Lawn we have a range of options such as bespoke gables and colour choices to make sure your marquee is fully branded to your requirements.

Typical specification of marquees for film and TV production

Capacity: 30 — 1000+ people
Dimensions: 3m — 30m wide
Flooring: Level, solid flooring

Using marquees for location filming allows production teams to take advantage of the adaptability, mobility, and cost efficiency that they provide. This ultimately contributes to a more efficient and dynamic filmmaking process.

Due to the versatility of our event marquees, they offer a complete solution for festivals of any kind.

With all of this to consider, when you’re planning a festival it’s important to get help from the experts. With Field & Lawn’s holistic approach to marquee hire for festivals each stage of the festival process is taken care of.

Bespoke event design and planning

The first step when planning any festival is planning the layout of event marquees on site. Each festival has a unique atmosphere with its own theme and identity. Everything down to the marquee design, venue layout and overall event space must be designed with this in mind. Planning a functional and practical layout for your marquee structures is key to creating a successful event. Field & Lawn play a pivotal role in bespoke event design and planning, helping festivals achieve that distinctive look and feel that the festival organiser imagined.

Installation of custom event structures

When it comes to providing entertainment, you may require some more bespoke structures for your festival. Attractions like silent discos, blacked-out cinema tents and kids’ entertainment may require more specialised structures. At Field & Lawn, we take a consultative approach discussing your requirements and providing custom structures that align with the needs of your festival perfectly.

Responsive service

During the process of planning a festival, you can’t always predict what will happen during the event.

Our five expert festival marquee hire tips

Chris Kitchin, one of Field & Lawn’s Project Managers shares his top 5 tips to help you find and hire the very best marquee for your festival. Chris has a wealth of knowledge and experience in providing Marquee hire for festivals on a large scale. Find out what he had to say below:

1. Plan early

Our marquee hire stock gets booked out quickly because of our premium service, quality stock, and competitive pricing. Furthermore, our clients are keen to secure our services on multi-year deals. Planning early will give you access to a wider stock range, and more options meaning we are more likely to meet your needs.

2. Site Visits

Get these pencilled in at the earliest stage, ideally, when the festival is ready for the public the year before. This helps to identify any obstacles that will always be more cost-effective to tackle earlier rather than later. Our experts will be able to plan logistics to ensure a smoother service delivery. We look at site access and potential marquee plots during these visits and how we can improve efficiency and quality.

3. Discuss the spec

Liaise with your marquee hire provider and allow them to support you with suggested specs based on your requirements and space. Our extensive knowledge could help you save money by offering more cost-effective solutions or a more premium finish.

4. Consider load in and out dates

The more time the better. As we saw over summer in 2023, the weather is unpredictable and more build time, allows us to overcome adverse weather, protect the ground prior to opening, and ensure the structures are built in time ready for your festival opening. If you can plan to avoid building on the weekend, it will be more cost-effective.

5. Contact Field and Lawn

Sit back and relax. Our unrivalled experience combined with our flexible hire stock means we can provide a world-class festival marquee hire service.  You may be happy with your current provider, but why just settle for happy?

Oktoberfest Marquee Hire

Celebrate Oktoberfest in style!

As autumn approaches, it’s time explore event opportunities beyond summer. The rich tradition of Oktoberfest is now celebrated around the world. The iconic German beer festival provides a great commercial opportunity to bring the spirit of Munich’s Oktoberfest to your own outdoor events.

The history of Ocktoberfest

Originating from Munich, Germany, Oktoberfest is an annual folk festival that dates back to 1810. It was initially a celebration of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage, and it quickly became an eagerly anticipated annual celebration event. In modern times, Ocktoberfest has evolved into one of the world’s largest beer festivals. It draws millions of visitors to enjoy German sausages, Bavarian pretzels, and of course, the famous Oktoberfest beer at Ocktoberfest themed events up and down the UK.

Marquee hire for Octoberfest events

As the festival takes place between September and October, a marquee is often a great venue option. It can be completely themed to transport your guests to the heart of Bavaria. Our clearspan event marquees provide the ideal setting for your Oktoberfest party, offering flexibility in size, design, and layout.

A clearspan marquee will provide ample room for seating, dancing, and entertainment. Field and Lawn have a vast range of corporate marquees, suitable for Ocktoberfest.  Our marquees come in a range of sizes from small event structures from 3m up to 9m. Our medium sized marquees range between 10m to 20m. If you are looking to hire a large marquee for your event, we can provide structures that span between 25m up to 30m.

To truly embrace the Oktoberfest spirit, our range of structures extends beyond clearspan marquees. We offer authentic smaller beer tents and conical marquees.  These smaller marquees make for great merchandise tents, and security check points.
