Marquee Events and Hire

Marquee Hire For Your Summer Wedding, Party or Corporate Event

From spacious classic structures, to funky festival tents – we can help you plan a marquee event to remember!

Alongside the barn and its own versatile space, we also have an impressive choice of marquee options, for those who have their heart set on celebrating their special celebration outdoors. Marquees are quite literally a blank canvas – just waiting for your vision and style – to create a bespoke wedding or party location of dreams! Keep it fresh and simple with paper lanterns, large colourful pom-poms or stylish greenery and fairy lights. Or go all out, with show-stopping floral displays, contemporary furnishings and dramatic lighting!


You might choose to incorporate a marquee, in conjunction with the main barn; for reception drinks, or an evening disco for example. Or you might like to use our meadow or woodland exclusively and base your entire event in the in the great outdoors. All possible! We host marquee weddings and parties from mid-April through to the end of September.
