A stretch tent is a versatile, flexible marquee that offers endless rigging configurations. Whether you’re looking for a fully open-sided canopy or a semi-enclosed snug space, we can customise our installation to suit your needs.

All of our stretch tents can be rigged with sides lowered to the ground to create side walls. Or, if you’d prefer, we can also offer window and fabric side panels which can be hired to enclose the space.

Our tents range from 4.5m x 4.5m all the way up to our largest single canopy at 20m x 30m. However, their modular nature means we can connect multiple canopies together to create the perfect size to suit your requirements. We have a popular base range of sizes that includes 6m x 9m, 7m x 10m, 9m x 12m, 10m x 15m, 12m x 17m, 20m x 10m, 20m x 15m, 24m x15m and 20m x 30m. When it comes to size and configuration, the possibilities are endless.

Yes, absolutely. We can carry out a free, no-obligation site visit to assess the structural integrity of the building, check the fixing options and recommend the best size for your space. We typically use masonry eyebolts set into the wall. These can then either be left in the wall for the customer to use on another occasion or removed and the holes filled.

We largely use bamboo poles for our hire installations due to their strength and their aesthetically pleasing appearance. However, we also stock Silver Birch, Ash and Eucalyptus poles for a beautiful, rustic look. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something sleeker and more industrial, we have aluminium poles available with optional black pole covers.

While our standard hire period would be 3-5 days (including installation and de-rig). However, we try to be as flexible as possible to make sure you have the stretch tent at the most convenient times for you.

We can help you work out the most suitable canopy for your event. This depends on a few main factors, including: the number of guests; whether the event is seated or standing; and whether the space needs to be enclosed. As a rough guide, we advise our customers to allow a minimum of 1m² per guest for a standing event, 1.5m² per guest for a cocktail event, and 2m² per guest for a sit down meal.

Yes. Our all-weather canopies provide you with a fully waterproof shade or shelter all year round.

Absolutely. This can be done with gas patio heaters, infrared pole-mounted heaters or indirect oil-fired heaters, which pump hot air through a duct into the stretch tent to keep everyone nice and toasty.
