As we count down the days to our huge birthday event, we're celebrating the things that have made Gala Tent the success it has been over the past twenty years. As has always been the case, any successful means of generating revenue will quickly be copied by others, and this has been no different with Gala Tent. Over the years, many new businesses have tried and failed to take our mantle of market leaders. Cheaper versions will appear, but Gala Tent has never been drawn into a race to the bottom. We're confident that our superior quality products speak for themselves, and there are lots of other reasons why we're a name that you can trust.


The second advantage to shopping with Gala Tent in our Seven Reasons Why series, is that we offer Expert Advice like no other supplier.

Expert Advice



Expert advice is a major part of what Gala Tent has offered to our customers over the past twenty years. We understand that there are many styles and strengths of the kinds of event structures we supply out there on the market, some of them much cheaper than others without having the appearance of being any different at all.

To the naked eye, that large marquee you’ve seen online at £199.99 might appear to be the same as another at £499.99, but there has to be a difference, right? You’d be right, there IS a difference.

You plan to use your pop-up gazebo maybe once a month, so you should get the strongest possible tent available, right? Not necessarily, but if you're intending to put it up in a motorsport paddock where the winds often blow harder than anywhere else, and there are powerful vehicles zooming around, then think about strength over cost. If you're using it every few months to promote your craft business in your local community hall, then you don't need an all singing, all dancing structure that could withstand a nuclear blast. You simply need a high quality and cost effective tent that reflects your own business.

Essentially (and probably obviously), what you're using it for dictates the most suitable gazebo or marquee for your needs, and you can trust Gala Tent to ensure you're getting the structure that is right for YOU.

This is where our team of experts, and our online advice centre, come in. Our experts are trained to ask the right questions and provide honest and trustworthy advice on which tent is perfect for you and your needs. Nobody will give you the hard sell on why the most expensive tent is right for you if the entry level structure does everything you need. None of our team will offer you a tent that's built for one hundred people, if you only need a tent for thirty people.

It’s this commitment to providing honest and reliable advice that has kept Gala Tent at the top of our game for two decades, and we’ve been receiving quality reviews about it for just as long.


Anita W had this to say on Trust Pilot:

“Excellent service, also very helpful was sales manager Darren. I had a major event and Darren ensured the items I needed arrived on time. His advice was great, and done to ensure my business had maximum visibility, and a tent that will last us a few years. Great listener and very patient to ensure we got the right product. Full marks to this company.”


Darren is very popular with all of our customers, as you’ll see from “FPP” and her lovely comments:

“Received my gazebo this morning and couldn’t be happier! I filled in the online form with my requirements as I wanted my logo printed and also my business name. Darren contacted me and he is a credit to Gala Tent, as he went through everything, never felt pushy in the slightest and let me have time to think it through before saying yes. I ordered on the Monday and it was here Friday morning. Would definitely recommend!”


But it’s not ALL about Darren! His team are incredibly knowledgeable and always happy to help, as Helen B had this to say:

“Excellent service, very quick and extremely helpful staff in Corey. Highly recommended to anyone.”
