When we are asked by clients what the advantage of hiring a Stretch Tent over a more traditional form of weather cover is, I always think that there is no simple reason, and it depends enormously on the client and what they are looking for from their event as a whole, and the structure itself. 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 Stretch Tent. Their natural lines lend themselves to sitting much more naturally in the landscape, whether it be urban or rural. When you combine this with some great lighting and amazing interiors, it is difficult to understand why you would hire a marquee!

Secondly, Stretch Tents are designed to be set up as canopies. We can, of course, rig them with low sides or sides built on to keep out the rain or cold, but as a canopy they include and enhance their surroundings, rather than blocking you out from them. Why have an outdoor event when you are creating a space that shields you from the surrounding landscape?

Finally, they are inherently flexible! A clearspan or frame marquee has a specific footprint, and this cannot be changed or amended. When set up by an experienced team, Stretch Tents can be rigged off buildings, over existing structures and plants, as well as being able to cover spaces that are technically too small. Therefore, even the most tricky and difficult of spaces can be covered in the most beautiful and unique way.

If you need a Stretch Tent for any upcoming events, big or small, private or corporate, please get in touch by email ( or by phone (07570361282) to chat to one of our experienced and friendly team.
