Reigate Business Guild Transform the Town's Christmas Fayre with Gala Tent


The Reigate Business Guild, a well-respected voluntary collective that's an advocate for the local business environment, recently enlisted the help of Gala Tent to transform their Christmas market event. With a focus on promoting small businesses and fostering a sense of community, the Guild is known for organising various local events, including their town’s recent huge Christmas Fayre, which was very highly anticipated by retailers and customers alike, and confirmed to be a massive success. 

Darren Perry, our company's sales manager, expressed his delight at working with the Reigate Business Guild, saying, "Gala Tent has a long and proud history of supplying shelters to local councils and communities, who use our pop-up gazebos for all manner of trading opportunities to bring commerce and revenue to their area. Reigate Business Guild are a discerning operation and knew that only the best shelters would do justice to their efforts in bringing an amazing event to their town."

A Magnificent Turnout at the Reigate Christmas Fayre

Thousands of people attended the recent Reigate Christmas Fayre, a testament to the Guild's excellent event planning and the impactful presence of Gala Tent's Pro 50 pop-up gazebos. A total of sixty heavy-duty Pro 50 gazebos, with white canopies, were provided by Gala Tent, setting the stage for an unforgettable event. 

These gazebos not only sheltered the various stalls and their trading activities but also contributed to the overall aesthetic and ambience of the fayre, giving a stylish consistency to the town’s event. Jason Mace, CEO of Gala Tent, said, "From Rotherham to Reigate, Gala Shade gazebos are renowned for their ability to withstand even the busiest spaces and regular use. I'm sure that these 60 structures will provide ample opportunities to generate revenue for the small businesses of the area and make every local event that they put on a storming success."

The Versatility of Gala Tent's Pro 50 Gazebos

Beyond the Christmas Fayre, these gazebos are expected to be utilised for future events organised by the Reigate Business Guild and the town in general. These include celebrations of the historic Reigate Tunnel and various summer festivals that are beloved by the local community. The Gala Shade Pro 50 gazebos, with their robust build and commercial-grade design, are well-suited to these regular activities. 

Design and Durability

The Pro 50 gazebos are designed with 50mm hexagonal aluminium legs, profile aluminium joints, and fixings, and heavyweight framework. These features make them capable of withstanding even the harshest weather conditions and the demands of high-traffic areas, making them a favourite among both sole traders and city market operators.

Gazebos Delivered Nationwide

Reigate is the latest in a long line of towns and cities that have opted to use the Gala Shade Pro Gazebos from Gala Tent for their markets and other notable events. Rotherham council use a combination of vibrant yellow and purple gazebos for their town’s market days, and for events such as the hugely popular Rotherham Show at Clifton Park. Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council recently took delivery of thirty printed Pro 50 3m x 3m gazebos for their town’s many amazing events. Brixton Electric Avenue market is awash with consistent Pro 50s. Barnsley’s revitalised town centre and Glassworks complex uses their own range of Gala Shade Pro Gazebos. Gala Tent has immense pride in our ability to deliver large numbers of structures for professional use by towns up and down the country, with free next working day delivery, ensuring that events can go ahead quickly and easily. 

Customer Satisfaction and Warranty

Customers often choose the Pro 50 gazebos after experiencing the failure of inferior products in adverse weather. One common sentiment is that while their previous tents failed, neighbouring Gala Shade gazebos weathered the storm, leading them to make the switch. In addition to their superior performance, our Pro 50 tents also come with a five-year warranty on the framework and a full range of replacement parts, providing added peace of mind for the buyer that they may never need to buy another full gazebo again, unless of course they are expanding and business needs demand it.
