  • TV, Film
  • Media
  • County Shows and Trade Events
  • What size of marquee do I need for my event?

    There is no direct answer to this question, when designing your own marquee and layout it can be as informal or formal as you like. For seating guests the rule of thumb is that in each 3m x 3m square area (or 10ft x 10ft) you can seat up to 10 persons. You must take into consideration if you wanted to be seated at round tables of eight to ten persons, or in straight lines using long trestle tables and whether you require a traditional top table.

    Another consideration is how many extra evening guests you will be having and how much space do you want for a bar/reception and chill out area and how much space the entertainment area will take up, this will take up more space if you're having a band and stage as well as a dance floor and DJ areas. You can use our tent planning tool (link on home page) or we have put together some suggested layouts for you to give you an idea of common layouts.

    Customer Testimonials

    Hear from our happy customers

    On July 12th 2019 we celebrated the Centenary of the founding of the Old Northamptonians. We wanted to go for a high-quality experience across the board in marquee, food, entertainment and all the extra bits that go into making a great night. We started working with Andrew from D and D back in October 2018 and the very first thing that struck me was he was a very honest, genuine guy who wanted to match our high-quality aims

    Mark Lee, Old Northamptionians Rugby Club

    Thank you to the D&D team for putting up such a wonderful marquee for our wedding day at Hinwick House. From the start, Andrew was very responsive to all of our questions and provided us with his fair and honest opinions throughout. We had asked for quotes from several suppliers but ultimately went with D&D because of our interactions with Andrew. Overall, we couldn't be happier with the large role that D&D played in making our wedding day truly special and memorable and for being so reliable throughout.

    Amazon Fulfilment Centre

    We were approached by a couple to provide a marquee and equipment for their upcoming wedding reception. The couple had exclusive use of a local private stately home and beautiful grounds. A site survey was arranged and the best position and layout of the marquee was decided. The couple wanted to make the most of the views of the grounds and across to the lake, so a clear gable end and clear roofs over the reception area with total clear windows down one side to get as much as the views as possible was agreed.

    Stately Home Wedding

    We were approached by a farmer to provide a marquee and fittings on his paddock to accommodate 100 guests for his daughter's wedding reception. As the marquee was on a farm they wanted a country/rustic feel. We provided the marquee with linings, flooring and new cream carpet, furniture, lime wash Chiavari chairs and total clear window sections to look out over the paddock.

    Countryside Farm Wedding

    We worked closely together with our friends at Posh Parties for a black tie dinner and dance to celebrate our clients 21st birthday celebrations for 150 seated guests. We supplied a totally blacked out marquee with twinkling LED star cloth ceilings, bar and chill out area, dance floor and staging. The structure was also fully heated as the party was in October. We also supplied the furniture, staging, toilet facilities, generator and power distribution. The evening was a huge success and a good time was had by all.

    21st Birthday Party

    These pictures show you how a marquee can be a "blank canvass" for you to create whatever look you wish. This was for a wedding reception for 850 guests at a private stately home in Leicestershire. The bride's wish was for as much pink as possible and that's what we created for her. The pads on the chairs were made up especially for this job, to match the carpet and pink up lighting.

    Pretty in Pink

    We were approached by a previous existing customer to cover the entire garden for his daughter's wedding reception. As the garden had lots of trees and flower beds in it proved to be a challenge. The marquee structure wrapped around the house in a L shape covering the three lawns and all joined together creating different space in each area, one for the bar area, one for a chill out area covering an existing patio and flower bed and one for the main dining area for 100 seated on straight tables.
