The client who has used our services for many years asked us to provide three marquees for a music event with a variety of rock styles in Crook. They also required a high bar in one of the marquees
It was a one day event with expected capacity of 1500+.
Power and catering were to be supplied in-house.
35m x 12m frame pavilion with black out lining and walls around stage area and high bar along one 40m end.
21m x 9m frame pavilion with 12m PVC clear walls and black walls in one end.
12m x 12m vintage pole peg marquee.
All three frame pavilions were supplied on 2.4m high walls to ensure they were high enough to allow the acts to perform on stage with adequate ‘head’ clearance.
The Royal Derwent Hotel, Allensford, Consett
The client asked us to supply a marquee for five events on consecutive nights with varying numbers of guests.
The marquee was to be used for five Durham University Students Summer Balls.
The site was the Derwent Manor, near Consett and the client wanted minimum disruption and noise for the guests staying at the hotel.
The client organised his own power supply.
55m x 25m frame pavilion with ivory inner lining suitable for 1000 guests – the largest function.
For the smallest function with 600 guests, we screened off one section of the marquee
The marquee had a full interlocking floor and charcoal carpet with a polished pine dance area,
Gold Gilt bentwood chairs and round tables to suit.
There was a separate food prep marquee for the hotel staff to use.
The Executive toilet units were supplied by Loos4hire of Bishop Auckland.
To ensure that there was no inconvenience to hotel guests we worked to the client’s specified schedule, arriving around 8:00am and off site by 16:00pm.
Mr and Mrs Prier of Old Cassop, County Durham
The initial brief:
The client wanted a marquee for up to 120 guests on a farm site bordered on all sides by trees.
They wanted space for a ‘chill – out’ are within the marquee and suitable furniture and a feature entrance.
The bride preferred an inner lining in a neutral colour without a coloured trim.
Their own gazebo was to be used for the outside bar.
We suggested that either a freestanding frame or a traditional pole peg marquee, either to have an all ivory ruched inner lining. They chose the frame option and complimented the ivory lining with Limewashed Chiavari chairs with ivory seat pads
A 6m x 6m pagoda with double glass doors formed the feature entrance with PVC window walls to one side. 2 three seater white leather sofas were placed within the pagoda and a table for guests to leave cards, etc. before going into the main marquee.
We advised on and organised the generator and the client distributed the electrics thenselves.
The client cut back the trees tyo accommodate the marquee.
Small vehicles were used because of the limited access to the site.
