Marquee Hire Surrey have very informative blog posts on their site, if you are thinking of hiring a marquee they are definitely the people to contact. Our company was wanting to hire a marquee for a large corporate function and we did not know where to turn. Marquee Hire came highly recommended so we contacted them and they gave us brilliant service from beginning to end.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT LAYOUT FOR MY MARQUEE?
When considering marquee layouts, and what seating to choose, there is a large amount of choice available; a certain aspect will be dictated by the type of function and whether it is a fully seated, part seating, or standing function.
Whilst we stock a wide variety of furniture, it is key to consider what atmosphere you are trying to create in your marquee, so that the furniture can be used to help add to this.
For fully seated functions we would recommend either 8 guests sat at 5ft round tables or 10 guests sat at 5ft 6″ round tables, allowing a 3x3m space for each table. We also stock 6ft round tables to seat 12 guests, however these are suited for more formal functions, as due to the size it makes it much harder for guests to speak to each other across the table. For top tables, for more traditional events such as weddings, we have long tables (4ft or 6ft long), and oval tables to suit a varying number of guests. Of course, like all of our marquees and events, none of this is set in stone, we can fine tune the furniture and marquee to suit your finer requirements.
For an informal function or part seated buffet using a range of table sizes works very well. It also breaks down the structure to create a more informal atmosphere. 3ft round tables work particularly well. We also have a variety of other seating available for hire including cubed seats, sofas, poseur tables; which can all add to the atmosphere, and create another area in the marquee, please feel free to browse the furniture we have available.
We are always happy to draft table layouts for our clients or to show other corporate events, private parties or weddings we have helped create in marquees, so do feel free to drop us a line if would like some assistance, or just a friendly chat about your event.
