Case Study: Southbank Centre 

It's great to see Gala Tent gazebos popping up all over the country, and one great example of the Gala Shades in action is at Southbank Centre's weekly food market in London. Southbank Centre, established in 1951, are a world famous arts centre, occupying a 21 acre site in the midst of London's vibrant cultural quarter of the South Bank of the Thames.

Liz Hoskyn, Commercial Site and Market Manager of Southbank Centre, purchased 36 3m x 3m Gala Shade Pro 50's to be used at the Southbank Centres weekly food market which is just one of their events that they host on a weekly basis. The organisation offers a wide range of cultural events such as music, dance, art, performance and spoken word events throughout the year.

Liz told Gala Tent Ltd how she chose Gala Shades due to the quotes she received from Gala Tent were more detailed compared to competitors as she was provided with more information on the gazebo frame and colour options. Liz also told us how Sam, Sales Assistant of Gala Tent, was in regular contact with her and he was always willing to help her with all enquiries.
