Traditional pole tents are full of character – the archetypal country fayre marquee. They offer a relaxed, country vibe and provide a perfect setting for a traditional, rustic party or event. They are a far less formal choice than the frame tent marquee style, detailed in the next section.
Traditional pole marquees are only suitable for use between May and October. As they are fixed to the ground using guy ropes and tall central poles, they are not suitable for use in high winds or with wet, wintry ground conditions.
Why choose a traditional pole marquee? There isn’t a huge variation in cost between frame tents and traditional pole marquees. The choice usually comes down to personal taste. Traditional pole marquees are perfect if you are looking to create a traditional and rustic style of wedding venue. The centralised support poles offer lots of character and are perfect for floral decorations to attach too. Traditional pole tents work well with coconut matting or even straight to grass. They can even be used with the side walls and roof space unlined, meaning that there will be a small cost saving versus frame tent marquees, which – for aesthetic purposes – should always been lined.
We manufacture our high quality pole tent marquees in house, using breathable canvas materials. This means that they are less susceptible to humidity and perfect for summer events.
