3 Key things to consider when hiring a marquee

A potentially daunting task can become exciting when you have a little guidance, especially when planning an event for a large group of people.

Despite this, when you have a lot to consider regarding space, location and atmosphere, marquee hire can help you simplify your approach whilst allowing you to be creative, exploring diverse layout options, decorative features, and practical considerations.

At Big Kahuna, the option to hire a marquee allows you to explore your ideas, helping you design the right space for you.

If you’re considering marquee hire, there are three things for you to consider – read on to find out what they are.

Where Will it Go?

When you decide to hire a marquee the first thing you need to consider is where it’s going to go, literally giving you the whole world to consider.

Whether it’s a catering event, conference, wedding, or market, hiring a marquee allows you to explore so many options.

Whether you choose a country landscape, urban space, or anything in between, one marquee or a combination of several can help you develop a bespoke arena for the event you’ve decided to host.

Being able to explore areas large and small allows you to cater for as many or as few people as you need, giving you more room to be creative when it comes to the design and layout of the marquee itself.

Chinese Hat Marquees

The second thing you need to consider is the type of marquee you’re going to hire, which is where the Chinese Hat Marquee comes in.

The Chinese Hat Marquee (also known as the Pagoda Marquee) is perfect for such considerations, not least because of its classic appearance.

Displaying an elegant steeple above the gathering space below, these marquees are perfect as a stand-alone feature, creating a small enclave for the function of your choosing.

As well as being great additions to larger marquees, Chinese Hat Marquees can be joined together to create larger systems, giving your vision the freedom to grow.

What Else Will I Need?

The final thing to consider is any additions or features you think you might need, whether they’re decorative, service-based, or functional.

Whether you hire one marquee for an outdoor bar or many for a huge wedding, decorative features and practical attributes are of vital importance.

As well as hot trays, fridges, serving counters, and other catering necessities, you will also need to consider light, heat, and power, as well as layout features for larger events.

Whilst this may seem like a lot to consider, it’s important to remember that the best thing about marquee hire is that it puts you in control, allowing you to alter your plans as they develop.

What’s to Lose?

If these considerations sound like an advantage, then what’s to lose in finding out more?

Here at Big Kahuna, Chinese Hat Marquees are just one part of the package we offer, with plenty of catering equipment options available too.
