What's the difference between the Standard marquees and the Luxury marquees?

The frames are the same for both marquees (6m wide marquees have extra roof supports - this is not needed for smaller marquees). The only difference is the thickness / quality of the material - the Luxury marquees use a luxurious thick 500gsm polyethylene / PVC composite (380g on the walls) which looks fantastic and is really durable.

The Luxury marquees are the correct choice if looks matter and / or if you are going to be using the marquee over and over again. The Standard marquees are more for 'one-offs' or occasional use.

The Luxury marquees are also extremely water tight, guaranteed not to leak. They have a greater 'water column' than the Standard marquees (the water column is a measure of the ability for water to 'sit' on the canopy without dripping through). After time, the Standard marquees may give rise to the odd 'drip' through the seams in heavy rain.

Our Luxury marquees have a manufacturers guarantee of 3 years. Our Standard marquees have a manufacturers guarantee of 2 years.

Easily extended

Our marquees essentially consist of 2m bays. As a result they are really easy to extend. If you find your marquee isn't quite big enough, you can buy an extension kit to extend the length to another of our standard sizes at a later date. Contact our customer services if you wish to do this.

Which fixings do I need?


If you are putting your marquee on grass, as a minimum you need a set of four corner ropes with pegs. We also recommend (particularly on marquees of 6m width, but also on smaller models) our tie down kit consisting of tensioned straps and heavy duty tent pegs. These straps should be put along the sides of the marquee, at intervals of 2m.

You can also purchase the ground bar kit to give extra rigidity to the bottom of marquee.


The marquee can free stand on concrete as long as you purchase a ground bar kit to give a rigid frame throughout.

If possible, use ropes at the corners to secure the marquee as well.

"Really nice marquee. Easy to put together and doesn't take long either! Looks really nice when it is up and is sturdy. While some leave it up for a while mine came down after the party. Taking down and packing away was just as easy ... all packed away nicely! I am looking forward to the next party to use it again and will not dread putting it together at all!"

"Great quality marquee - very easy to put up/take down even with only two people. Sturdy frame etc. My only minor gripe is the tags that tie the door up when rolled up are a bit flimsy and one has broken but other than that - brilliant! Much cheaper than hiring (used it twice and already got our moneys worth!) - Highly recommended..."
