Clear span marquees

All our marquees are clear span marquees. This means that there are no poles or other obstructions inside the marquee so that a clear view can be maintained from one end of the marquee if desired. Speakers are not obscured from view and guests can see the people at the “top table.” Naturally, if you would like to divide up the space, we can do this for you within the clear span marquee.

Marquee decorations

Decorating your marquee is easy with Andrews Marquees. We provide the structure, furniture, flooring, lighting and partitions for you to add whatever you like in terms of design. We even offer themed marquees, if required. Please click here to discover further details.

Themed marquees?

Yes we do.  We provide everything you need for your wedding or party theme from the marquee linings, floorings and furniture to recommended suppliers for your special occasion.

How many people will our marquees hold?

We provide various sizes of marquee to suit your requirements. Our clear span marquees will seat 50 -400 people at tables. If you are hosting an event where people are standing, then up to 1000 people can be accommodated.

Marquee lining colour

The standard marquee lining we hire is ivory in colour. This leaves you free to add flowers, lighting effects and logos of any colour you like for your event. If you would prefer a different colour lining however, we can provide these at different price ranges.

Do I need to clean the marquee after use?

No

Flooring

We offer various marquee flooring options. Your marquee may be sited on a grass, gravel or tarmaced area and this will affect the type of flooring you require. Similarly, if the weather has been particularly cold or wet, then a bare grass floor would not be ideal, especially if your guests wear stilettos! To cope with all types of ground conditions we offer:

  • new carpet which provides warmth, comfort and luxury to the whole or just part of your marquee
  • beautiful matting for comfort and to protect from damp conditions
  • a complete hardwood floor cover which can be softened with new carpet or matting to guarantee a dry and safe event
  • staging for entertainment and bands
  • dance floors for your guests – these can be black and white checker design or parquet flooring and can be of any size you wish

To discuss your marquee flooring requirements, please fill in the form on our contact us page or call 01272 545199.
