Traditonal Pole Tents

Traditional pole tents are brimming with character, epitomising the classic country fair marquee. They offer a relaxed, rustic atmosphere, making them ideal for traditional events and rustic-themed parties. Unlike the more formal frame tent marquees detailed in the next section, these tents are perfect for casual gatherings in London.

Traditional pole marquees are best suited for use between May and October. Due to their design, which involves securing the structure with guy ropes and tall central poles, they are not suitable for high winds or wet, wintry conditions.

Why choose a traditional pole marquee? The cost difference between frame tents and traditional pole marquees is minimal, so the decision usually comes down to personal preference. Traditional pole marquees are perfect for creating a rustic wedding venue. The central support poles add character and are ideal for attaching floral decorations. These tents work well with coconut matting or directly on grass, and they can be used without interior linings, offering a small cost saving compared to frame tents, which generally require linings for aesthetic reasons.

We manufacture our high-quality pole tent marquees in-house using breathable canvas materials, making them less susceptible to humidity and perfect for summer events.

Frame Tents

Another term for the frame tent marquee is ‘clearspan’. Clearspan indicates that the interior space of the marquee is unobstructed, as there are no internal support poles. This term can be misleading, as some people assume it refers to clear roofs and walls; for clear marquees, please refer to the clear marquees section below.

Frame tents are highly customizable and ideal for creating unique and bespoke marquee party spaces. They have a modern, contemporary appearance and are suitable for year-round use. Frame tents come in a wide range of sizes and configurations.

Why choose a frame tent? The versatility of frame tent marquees is a major advantage. They can be adapted for both rustic and contemporary events and configured in various layouts, both inside and out. With no internal support poles, they provide a completely open space. Additionally, frame tents don’t require guy ropes, so they have a smaller footprint than pole tents. Importantly, frame tents are suitable for use throughout the entire year.

House Extension Marquees

House extension marquees are a specialty here at Lifestyle Marquees. These marquees use a frame tent structure adapted to attach directly to buildings such as houses and barns. Equipped with guttering systems to keep rain out, they provide a seamless transition from your home to the additional marquee space.

A house extension marquee is an excellent choice if you are hosting a party at home but lack sufficient indoor space for all your guests. They are also commonly used to create extra space for dancing, dining, and entertaining.

House extension marquees share all the features of frame tents. They can have clear walls and roof sections, and can be set up on solid, carpeted, or even raised flooring. These marquees can be equipped with full heating, lighting, and electrical systems, just like all the marquees we offer.

Pagoda Marquees

Pagoda marquees, also known as Chinese hat marquees, are a decorative option ideal for garden parties or as an addition to a frame tent marquee setup. They can be used individually or in combination to create entrances, reception areas, chill-out zones, bar areas, and breakout spaces.

Pagoda marquees complement frame tent marquees perfectly, with their peaked roofs adding an attractive feature. They are an excellent choice for party marquees in London, especially where ample space is available.

Clear Marquees

Transform your frame tent or extension marquee into a partially or completely clear marquee. By using a combination of glass doors, PVC panels, and gable ends, we can create semi or fully transparent marquees. This increasingly popular style adds a real wow factor to parties and events.

Clear marquees make stunning and striking party venues. We often recommend partially clear marquees as they offer a varied look and feel while allowing you to showcase garden ornaments, trees, or buildings outside the marquee.

A clear roof space, adorned with marquee sails or a beautiful floral display, will captivate your guests. In the warmer months, partially clear marquees prevent guests from feeling trapped in a greenhouse, which is especially important during the height of summer.

Both frame tents and house extension marquees can feature clear window walls, roof panels, and glass doors.
