Traditonal Pole Tents

Traditional pole tents exude charm, embodying the quintessential essence of a countryside fair marquee. Their relaxed, rustic ambiance provides an ideal backdrop for traditional gatherings or events. Particularly popular for party marquees in West Sussex, these tents offer a distinct contrast to the more formal frame tent style.

However, it’s important to note that traditional pole marquees are best suited for use between May and October due to their design. Anchored by guy ropes and tall central poles, they may not withstand high winds or wet wintry conditions.

Choosing a traditional pole marquee versus a frame tent often boils down to personal preference, as there isn’t a significant cost difference. Traditional pole marquees are especially appealing for those seeking a classic rustic wedding venue. The central support poles add character and serve as ideal points for floral decorations. These tents can be set up directly on grass or with coconut matting, offering flexibility in venue choice. Additionally, leaving the side walls and roof space unlined can result in cost savings compared to lined frame tent marquees, which are typically preferred for aesthetic reasons.

At our facility, we manufacture high-quality pole tent marquees using breathable canvas materials, making them resilient to humidity and ideal for summer events.

Frame Tents

Another term for the Frame tent marquee is ‘clearspan’. Clearspan means that there’s an uninterrupted space inside the marquee. Unlike traditional pole tents, there are no internal supporting poles within their structure. The term clearspan can sometimes lead to confusion as people assume that the term refers to clear marquee roofs and walls; if you are interested in clear marquees, see the clear marquees section, below.

Frame tents offer unparalleled customisation options, making them ideal for creating distinctive and personalised marquee party venues. With a sleek and modern aesthetic, they are versatile enough to be utilised throughout the year and are available in various sizes and configurations.

The versatility of frame tents is one of their key selling points, as they can effortlessly transition from rustic to contemporary settings. Their flexible layout options, both internally and externally, allow for a myriad of design possibilities. Additionally, the absence of internal support poles provides a seamless and uninterrupted interior space. Unlike pole tents, frame tents do not require guy ropes, resulting in a smaller footprint. Crucially, frame tents can be utilised year-round, offering adaptability for any season.

House Extension Marquees

House extension marquees are a specialty here at Lifestyle marquees marquee hire. These marquees are crafted using a frame tent structure specifically designed to attach directly to buildings like houses and barns. Utilising guttering systems, they effectively keep rain at bay while seamlessly integrating additional space with your existing structure.

Opting for a house extension marquee is an excellent choice when hosting a home party but find yourself short on indoor space. These marquees serve various purposes, from providing extra room for dancing, dining, and entertainment.

Sharing the characteristics of frame tents, house extension marquees can feature clear walls and roof sections and can be customised with solid, carpeted, or raised flooring. Additionally, they can be equipped with heating, lighting, and electrical systems to ensure comfort and convenience, consistent with all our marquee offerings.

Pagoda Marquees

Pagoda marquees, also known as Chinese hat marquees, offer an ornamental and versatile marquee option ideal for garden parties or as an addition to a frame tent marquee arrangement. They can be utilised independently or in conjunction with other structures, commonly serving as entrances, reception areas, chill-out zones, bar spaces, or breakout zones.

These pagoda marquees seamlessly complement frame tent setups, with their peaked roofs adding an attractive architectural element. Their versatility makes them an excellent choice for party marquees in West Sussex, where ample space often allows for creative configurations.

Clear Marquees

Transform your frame tent or extension marquee into a partially or fully transparent structure with our innovative combination of glass doors, PVC panels, and gable ends. This allows us to create semi or entirely see-through marquees, a trend gaining popularity for its awe-inspiring effect on parties and events.

Clear marquees serve as stunning and captivating party venues, with partially transparent options being particularly recommended for most occasions. Not only do they offer a diverse aesthetic within the marquee space, but they also provide the opportunity to showcase outdoor elements such as garden ornaments, trees, or buildings.

Enhance the ambiance further with a clear roof adorned with marquee sails or exquisite floral arrangements, sure to leave your guests amased. Even during warmer months, partially transparent marquees ensure your guests don’t feel confined, addressing concerns about feeling trapped in a greenhouse, especially in the peak of summer.

Both frame tents and house extension marquees can be equipped with clear window walls, roof panels, and glass doors, offering versatility in design and functionality.
