Traditional Marquee Hire

THE choice for the discerning customer seeking elegance and style

Mudway Workman offers a range of Traditional marquee hire options throughout Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and beyond. Every event we attend is unique and these beautifully crafted, canvas marquees really let you show off your sense of style and heritage.

They can be lined to bring a modern touch or left ‘au naturel’ with just the completely waterproof canvas above your heads. The PVC walls provide shelter from the weather, both wet and heat and can easily be removed to allow an open space for your guests to view the surroundings. By using lighting and floral arrangements these traditional marquees are perfect for weddings, parties and as a special touch for any outdoor event.

  • Romantic: these marquees are have elegant ‘swooping’ lines and are reminiscent of a classic English Country garden party. Ideal for romantic traditional weddings, garden parties or any event where a little extra ‘something’ is called for.
  • King Poles: the supporting poles holding the shape of the roof of the marquee are the perfect ‘canvas’ upon which you can decorate with floral arrangements, ribbons, balloons and lights. Rather than getting in the way they provide a great way to break up the internal space of the marquee.
  • Space at a premium: despite what many people first assume these tents only require and extra 6 ft of space to accommodate the guy ropes, stakes and pegs. Our workman are very adept (and careful) at clawing extra space from bushes, hedges and borders !

Clearspan / Frame Marquee Hire

Modern, stylish and flexible - create your own perfect wedding venue

If you are looking for a modern space in which to hold your event, then a clearspan / aluminium framed marquee is the ideal choice. There are so many advantages to having a clearspan marquee that go way beyond the simple space and size options (see below). Because of their unique structure, we are able to tailor and shape the marquee to match your needs. This means we can cater for sloped gardens, walls, ponds, steps, corners and a variety of other scenarios.

These marquees are perfect for weddings, parties and corporate events and when erected on 3 metre legs they provide a stunning volume of space which can be filled with complex lighting rigs, chandeliers, speakers, screens and floral arrangements. Often set over a wooden floor theses marquees bring the benefits of an internal space into a more flexible arena – a bit like having a hotel ball room in your garden.

When fully decorated with carpeting, lining, lights, French doors, integral toilets and a bar, they are the ultimate venue for the perfect bespoke wedding and gives you the opportunity to really make a statement.

  • Flexible: with no central poles, these marquees provide a beautiful open, unrestricted space. It leaves you free to arrange the tables in any fashion you please and everyone will always have a great view. We can accommodate a range of shapes and configurations and the interior can be sectioned off to reveal a dancefloor later in the evening or allow space for the caterers or band.
  • Any surface… Anywhere: well… almost !!. Unlike traditional marquees which must be tethered by ropes and stakes, our clear span marquees can be situated on just about any surface including hard surfaces like sand, gravel, and concrete. Stakes are often used to secure the marquee but often (covered) weights are used on the outsides to protect against severe winds. These means that this type of marquee is suitable for small gardens, difficult shaped spaces, uneven ground, courtyards, roof terraces, you name it, we’ve been asked to erect a marquee on it.
  • Warm in Winter: because of the unique design these marquees can happily be used, in conjunction with heaters, during the winter months. They are designed to withstand higher wind speeds and snow loadings. Completely waterproof, you can be assured that your event can proceed inside even if you don’t want to go outside.
  • Safety: as with all the material on our marquees the material is made from flame-retardant PVC manufactured to the latest BSI standards.

Pagoda / Chinese Hat

A stylish additional to a traditional or framed wedding marquee

Whether you refer to them a pagodas, pavillions, chinese hats, witches hats or gazebos, these attractive marquees are perfect for when you just need a little shelter from the sun or rain. They can be walled or left open sided and can stand on grass or hard surface. They can also be fully lined, carpeted and lit and are great for ‘hosting’ the wedding ceremony or sheltering the band, just 2 of many uses.

Their unique shape provides a focal point for an event and when used in conjunction with a traditional or clear span wedding marquee they help create a special atmosphere.

  • Multiple uses: these make for the perfect, flexible, additional space. Often used as a ‘porchway’ or entrance to the main marquee they can be attached to both traditional and clear span marquees. They are also great for bars, smoking areas, a cover for musicians, or just a chill-out area. Enclosed on all sides or left open as just a canopy, they are a great addition to any event or wedding.
  • A big or small area: because these marquees are only 5m x 5m and do not require ropes and stakes, our Chinese Hat marquees can be situated on just about any surface including hard surfaces. We prefer to secure with stakes but weights can often be used to protect against the elements. This means that this type of marquee is equally suitable for small garden parties and large weddings too,
