We’re at the start of a brand new year so firstly, Happy New Year to all of our customers; we look forward to working with you in 2016.
Now is a great time to plan your events for the year ahead from organising caterers, your guestlist and most importantly a venue. More often than not, a marquee can be the ideal solution, providing you with a foundation to make your event unique.
We take a look through the year ahead and show you why a marquee is the ideal solution for the whole year.
Springtime in the UK can often present a mixed bag. Whilst we wish for those frosty, sunny days, showery weather and wind can often make a regular appearance. This time of year often sees corporate events and garden parties towards the end of this season.
To ensure you are kitted out correctly, we can supply heaters to keep your guests warm and flooring to keep their feet dry when the April showers arrive. Remember, at Tents and Marquees, we also carry a large stock of tables and chairs so please let us know your requirements when booking your marquee.
‘Hottest month on record’, ‘Most rainfall in a Century’, we’re all familiar with the headlines throughout the UK summer which can be incredibly unpredictable. Whilst July is normally our warmest month, it can also be the wettest so when planning your events, it is important to factor this in. With Summer being the best chance of seeing some sunshine, events from the end of May through to August include weddings, festivals and county shows.
Make sure you are prepared for your busy social calendar and ensure when planning your own event that you use checklists, spreadsheets and allow plenty of time for suppliers to arrive and set up. Should you need assistance in sourcing your suppliers, at Tents and Marquees we have an extensive list of contacts from catering suppliers through to lighting for your marquee.
Where you will find our Tents and Marquees in Summer:
Summer is a busy time for everyone at Tents and Marquees. When we aren’t setting up for a wedding or family party, you can find us at the Shropshire County show, Ladies Day at Ascot, and the Shropshire Light Infantry reunion.
A time of change, Autumn brings cooler weather which is often accompanied by wind and rain. Mornings are often misty whilst we continue to see light evenings. As the summer comes to an end, the last of the festivals take place and school concerts and events signal the end of the holidays.
In order to arrange the best marquee for your event, consider how many people will be attending, whether all guests will be seated and whether you have toilets in the vicinity. Not only do we have a wide range of marquees available for all manner of events, we can also source luxury toilets and a wide choice of different types of furniture.
Where you will find our Tents and Marquees in Autumn:
At the end of August, often just as we start to experience more Autumnal conditions, the team here at Tents and Marquees provided several of our marquees for Shrewsbury Folk Festival, a great local event that sees visitors from all around the country congregate in Shropshire.
With frequent ‘cold snaps’ throughout the winter months accompanied by prolonged showers, November through to February are known for icy and dangerous conditions. Whilst we often wish for a layer of snow, a small smattering can bring the country to a standstill. These months often see family celebrations including proposals and intimate winter weddings.
Preparing in advance at this time of year is vital to ensure your event runs smoothly. With a full range of marquees and accessories, we try our very best to turn your outdoors into an indoors. With all the benefits of marquees including the ability to make it your own with the added bonus of thermostatically controlled heating, flooring and lighting, a marquee can be the ideal solution- even during our coldest months!
Where you will find our Tents and Marquees in Winter:
In Winter, you can find the Tents and Marquees team providing warm marquees for a number of festive events and preparing for the better seasons ahead. You will also see a number of our accessories in use for indoor events including trestle tables at various shows around the county.
We’re all looking forward to another great year ahead and as you can see, no matter what the season, there is a marquee to suit your event. Keep an eye out on our website for more news and information. Should you need assistance or have a question for our team, contact us today.
