Our structures are available with white, clear or black vinyl roofs and walls. The galleries show the wide variety of structures on offer.
A traditional styled marquee with high centre poles and distinctive white guy ropes. These are beautiful marquees in garden settings, with taut white vinyl roofs stretching 5.5m high at their peak. These marquees require pegs into the ground surface and cannot be installed using weights. The gallery contains great images of weddings and “country style” parties.
