It's important that you find the right structure and location for your event, but it is also imperative that what's on the inside really counts.

After being contracted by one of the world’s largest biopharmaceutical companies – we got straight to work designing and working with them to create the perfect marquees to work along aside their weeklong event in Chepstow.

Our first build was at Caldicot Castle where we installed a 12m x 27m panoramic window and roof marquee. This most importantly housed the 80’s band!

Panoramic Windows and Roofs

The marquee was nestled in the grounds of the castle – a perfect setting. A cinema screen was organised along with a variety of food outlets for an action packed evening of entertainment. Chesterfield sofas from Furniture 4 Events provided comfortable seating along with an oval silver bar for the extensive gin and beer collection.

Our second marquee was located just 10 minutes from the Castle at the St Pierre Marriott Hotel & Country Club. Here was a very different build; complete with a Robot Wars arena!  

We contracted SLX to build a tiered platform so that all the delegates could clearly see the action taking place. As well as CMC providing a Premium structure allowing for a 3m leg to give extra height when standing on the tiered platform.

The furniture in this structure was much more rustic, and Virginias Vintage Hire provided their gigantes trestle tables and benches along with a rustic and traditional looking bar.

Being situated slightly away from the hotel, lighting is minimal therefore our contractor Forbesons provided external festoons which gave an inviting entrance to the marquee and food outlets.

Premium 15m Structure

All in all a fun week of events which was enjoyed by all!
