About 2 In Tents Marquee Hire

10 Years of great marquees

This year we are celebrating our tenth year in business.

No one said it would be easy starting a business from scratch. It has been difficult at times, full of challenges, but very fulfilling.

On the 31st December 1999 we put up marquees for three new years eve parties and we have not looked back since.

In the first couple of years we provided marquees predominantly for weddings and parties and had to hire in most of the extras, but now things have moved on.

We are still providing beautifully decorated marquees for weddings and parties but are now able to offer(in house) a much wider variety of extras including LED starlight linings, furniture, table linen, dance floors, lighting, heating, luxury toilets, generators and catering facilities... to name but a few.

We are able to cater for the smallest most intimate wedding through to the more elaborate and extravagant. One of our most recent weddings in December 2009 had to be large enough to accommodate eight hundred people for a sit down meal. We were able to provide everything they required and the only complaint was from an elderly gentleman saying he was too hot (the outside temperature was minus three).

We have a long standing relationship with a number of Wedding venues throughout the South Easy and we have just been taken on as the main supplier of marquees to Eastwell Manor in Ashford.

Corporate hospitality and private functions now account for nearly half of our turnover. We are contracted to a number of private schools for summer balls and speech day presentations. One of our largest events continues to be The University of Kent at Canterbury Summer Ball at which our marquees are filled with nearly 5000 students celebrating the end of another semester. We are also very proud to supply marquees to The Kent County Cricket Club. In the summer of 2009 we had 17 marquees in a line around the edge of the pitch.

In recent times we have expanded into the film industry and have built relationships with a number of production companies and film studios. We provided marquees on the set of the latest Harry Potter film, Batman Begins and St. Trinian’s.

Although we are now a much larger company our experience and enthusiasm ensure quality and pride in every aspect of every event.
