Please pop along to our Marquee Planner section. Here you will find a chart that will guide you through the sizing process.
A clearspan marquee or framed marquee as it is also commonly referred to are modern free standing structures, without the inconvenience of having internal poles or external guy ropes, and can be used on hard standing or grass. Our frames are sectional, so we are able to build our marquees to fit your location, where space may be limited.
Our standard operational zone covers Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex / West London, Surrey, Hampshire, Oxon, Hertfordshire
You do not need to worry if there is a slight slope. Even a more pronounced slope is not usually an issue for the marquee structure, however you may find that it is not suitable for a seated event.
We would usually recommend a raised solid floor to even out a pronounced slope or where a split level needs to be considered.
Yes. Many of our clients wish to hire one of our marquees so that it serves as an extension to their home. As such our marquees can, in most cases, butt against the side of a house with ease.
For a weekend event we typically erect marquees on the Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. We would then return to dismantle the marquee on the following Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. If you have a special requirement, please let us know and we will timetable for that.
Yes. We have an extensive range of furniture hire products, bars, dance floors and staging. As such we are regularly called upon to supply furniture hire products for venues and smaller marquee hire companies.
Equally you may be organising a sporting event or similar and merely require just a basic functional marquee for shelter / storage.
Our marquees are suitable for every season of the year. In fact the Christmas period is an exceptionally busy time for Tops Marquees. Simply add a solid floor with heaters and you will soon forget you are in a marquee. Decorated appropriately, a marquee can be transformed into an exciting winter venue.
The British weather is incredibly unpredictable; therefore even in June/July a heater may be necessary. So budget for a heater just in case, and make a decision in the week leading up to your party when you have seen the weather forecast.
The lining adds a luxurious finishing touch touch to the marquee. In addition to it's decorative qualities, the lining is designed to hide the PVC walls and marquee's metal framework. An unlined marquee is more suitable for functional or casual events.
All of our marquees are white.
Please pop along to our marquee pricing section, where you will find a dance floor guide to help you choose the right dance floor hire size for your event.
We usually obtain power from your house or the venue to run power for the marquee lighting and/or music. A caterers requirements are likely to be more substantial, but this can be discussed on a project by project basis. We are able to supply a generator in circumstances where mains power is not available.
We can arrange anything from single “tardis” toilets, through to luxurious trailers with hot and cold running water. Simply ask us for details.
Yes. Generally speaking the walls of our marquees can be easily opened.
All our marquees are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications and are fully fire resistant.
