1. “Marquees can only be used in summer”

Although when you think of a summer gathering or large garden party, you may conjure up images of a beautifully decorated marquee on a pristine lawn, it doesn’t mean that marquees cannot be used at other times of the year. Marquees are extremely sturdy and can be used with suitable heaters to ensure that the space remains warm and welcoming as the evening approaches.

2. “You need a big space”

Although it’s right that you can acquire very large marquees to complement large-scale events such as corporate gathering or weddings, marquees come in various shapes, sizes and styles and can even fit in courtyard spaces. What’s more, marquees may also be used as an extension to an indoor space. Before investing in a marquee for your event, it is wise to consult a professional to discuss your size requirements.
