Typical Prices for Marquee Hire

We create a unique estimate for every client as the size and specification of the marquee and furniture will always be tailored to your requirements.

We can ensure that your marquee is always the correct size for the number of guests and can amend the specification (subject to availability) as your plans change.

Outline Marquee Hire Prices

Whether you are planning a marquee for your wedding, party or corporate event, it is always good to have an initial idea of the costings to help you begin your plans. Whilst every hire situation is different, this page aims to provide an idea of marquee hire prices.

As a general guide, the price of a marquee is determined by its size, location, internal decoration and the time of year of the event. One of the best things about having a marquee is that it's a blank canvas - it is always based on your guest numbers and style of event, and therefore you can choose which aspects you want to spend your budget on to make it really personal to you.

hired marquee with furnitureWe do offer two different styles of marquee - a clear span and a Petal pole traditional style. To create a celebration venue we do recommend lining the clear span marquee, but the traditional marquee does not require lining and therefore the cost of the two styles is very similar. 

As an outline figure for planning, a marquee for a wedding for 100 guests would be around £3,000 to hire in summer. This cost would include the marquee structure, lining (for the clearspan marquee), carpet, chandelier lighting, furniture and dance floor. All the items can be changed to reflect your personal style. We have also included delivery, damage waiver and VAT. 

If you require additional hire items such as a catering area, luxury toilet trailer and a generator with power distribution, the price would increase by approximately £1,500.

The prices detailed here are intended as a guide for an event held during the summer months; however we do offer a winter discount for events held between October and April, making the marquee hire price lower than the prices mentioned above. As every requirement is different, this discount is not a set amount and details can be provided on enquiry.
