Early 2017 Season

Our 2017 season has started with a very busy few weeks…. We started out with a few small set ups over the winter, but entered the season proper at the end of April with a return trip to Sark Island. This time, we were hired to train a number of crew to set up and take down a stretch tent that our client had bought in a number of ways.

However, I shall endeavour to simplify things for you into 3 categories. Firstly, and most importantly, the Stretch Tent system is a thing of beauty. We have become so used to the traditional pole or frame marquee, that it is such a shock to the system to see someone’s event going on under a…
