General Marquee Equipment Universal Marquees can provide everything needed for your marquee for both summer and winter marquee events:


Flooring Flooring can be used either practically or effectively to provide a firm surface for your guests from grass or mud, or to provide colour and a luxurious effect in the marquee. Matting Our neutral coloured matting creates an excellent surface on lawn and field grass, especially for that rustic marquee look. We lay a plastic underlay to protect the marquee flooring from the weather. Carpet We have a standard neutral coloured carpet that can be fixed onto grass. Alternatively, for hard flooring, a choice of colour can be used, which is always new for all our marquee clients. Hard flooring This option provides a flat, hard surface throughout the marquee. This minimises any undulations in the ground and is great in the winter and bad weather. With a coloured carpet, suited to your personal taste, it creates an impressive setting within the marquee. Dance floor – Our parquet and black & white dance floors create an enjoyable and exhilarating area within the marquee so you can party the night away.


Decor ( Tables, Linen & Chairs )

Tables We have various shapes and sizes of tables, let us know your table plan and we will supply the tables required. We have a vast stock of all shapes and sizes… Chairs Our Chivari chairs are stunningly elegant and help to create a very sophisticated look Our gold gilt banqueting chairs are perfect for most parties. Ideal for formal events where you want to provide every comfort for your guests. Our white bistros chairs are cost effective, sturdy and fresh-looking. They can be provided with or without coloured seat pads and reflect more informal summer days and family events. Linen We have a broad range of linen available including white black and ivory options. We have access to a whole host of additional colours if your colour theme is more daring! Linings & Swags Your ideas may be bold or subtle, simple or fancy; the canvas is always blank to begin with. Our classic ivory linings may be used alone or together with coloured swags to reflect your theme. Flat linings give a modern look to the space and again with simple swaging are sure to achieve the desired effect. For that extra something starlight linings can be used to create a magnificent and magical effect. “The ‘night sky’ over the dance floor was stunning and definitely provided the ‘wow’ factor.” Sally McCann



Lighting Marquee lighting can be used to create the décor and atmosphere you require within your marquee. Up lighters are used to generate an effect around the sides of the marquee and can be coloured to create a certain ambiance. Chandeliers, hung from the apex of the marquee, produce a classic look, popular for weddings. To create that party atmosphere on the dance floor we can provide a disco ball. Outdoor lighting enhances outside features, such as the front of a house. We have festoon lights that create a lit walkway, when connected from a building to the marquee entrance. We have fairy lights that can be wrapped around a tree or to the inside roof of the marquee. Outdoor floodlights can light up a building, tree or feature creating a ‘wow’ factor outside the marquee.


Bars, Toilets & Staging

Bars We have some great quality wooden bars available to hire. These were custom built for us and will work in most marquee designs and come in a number of sections allowing you to install the right size bar area for your planned layout. Staging We provide black staging for a band or speeches which comes in 8′ x 4′ (2.4m x 1.2m) panels and is 1′ (30cm) high. Toilets Portable toilets and luxury toilets can be provided to suit your requirements. The luxury toilets come clean and fully equipped with wash hand basins, running water, drying facilities, mirrors, elegant lighting throughout… and music.!


Electrics, Generator & Heaters

Electrics Our comprehensive marquee site visit will assess what kind of power requirements you will need but final specification will be dependent on the catering and music requirements. We can provide all the cabling and power extensions required for your marquee events as well as power distribution boards of16Amp, 32Amp and 64Amp. All your cabling, sockets and power leads will be incorporated within the quote and all are certified safe. Generator We can provide you with a generator if the power requirements and location of your marquee suggests that you need one. Heaters With the unpredictable weather, a marquee heater may be necessary and can be requested nearer the time (subject to availability). Our marquee heaters are positioned outside the marquee with a duct that distributes clean, odourless heat throughout the marquee. Inside the marquee you have your own temperature gauge to regulate the temperature. Patio heaters can be used when required outside the marquee.
