“Steve and his team at Sovereign Marquee Hire gave us the most amazing marquee. They were able to provide us with everything thing we needed for a nightclub themed party. This is the second time we have used them, for very different parties, and their service and help has been fantastic. Thanks Steve.”

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of hiring a marquee?

A marquee can offer guests something different.

The outdoor feel, a more intimate setting and a more cost-effective, accessible solution.

If you are passionate about hosting your party at your family home but haven’t enough space inside, a marquee could be the perfect solution.

How long does it take to erect a marquee?

It will vary based on the specification of the marquee you have hired. For garden parties, smaller marquees can take a couple of hours; for wedding marquees, we allow an entire day.

How much space will be required by the marquee erection team?

It depends very much on the type of marquee being erected; we will always carry out a no-obligation free site survey before any marquee is installed. Contact us to discuss or arrange a free site visit.
