Frequently Asked Questions:

Gala Tent sells marquees that can cost anything from £289.99 inc VAT for the 3m x 2m Original PE Marquee, up to £12,014.99 for a 9m x 30m Fusion Marquee. We recommend you search for your size of tent or give the team a call on 01709 242454 to get the right one for you.

It will depend on the size and weight of the tent, but we recommend that for sizes longer than 6m, you have one person for each leg on one side. For example, a 6m x 12m marquee will have 8 legs on either side. As you lift one side of the roof up to put the legs on, it will be easier and safer for your team if you have one person slotting a leg in. For Fusion Marquees, it will require a good team to ensure the heavy parts are secure.

It does depend on the size of the marquee and the number of people involved, but this is a good rule of thumb:

2m x 3m – Approx 30 minutes
3m x 3m – Approx 30 minutes
3m x 4m – Approx 45 minutes
3m x 6m – Approx 1 hour
3m x 8m – Approx 1 hour 15 minutes
3m x 10m – Approx 90 minutes
4m x 4m – Approx 45 minutes
4m x 6m – Approx 1 hour
4m x 8m – Approx 1 hour 15 minutes
4m x 10m – Approx 90 minutes
4m x 12m – Approx 1 hour 45 minutes
6m x 4m – Approx 1 hour 15 minutes
6m x 6m – Approx 90 minutes
6m x 8m – Approx 1 hour 45 minutes
6m x 10m – Approx 2 hours
6m x 12m – Approx 2 hours 15 minutes

Absolutely yes. Gala Tent has a strong reputation amongst professional hirers, and we work alongside many successful operations to provide them with commercial quality marquees. If you’re interested in starting a marquee hire business then give us a call on 01709 242454. We have many resources available to give you the best possible start.

There are two marquee cover materials available from Gala Tent: 240gsm PE and 650gsm PVC. Both materials are at least 20% heavier than the next available competitor’s comparable products. 

Gala Tent sells spare parts for every single component of your party tent or commercial marquee. From nuts and bolts to poles and beams, to sides and canopies. Our expert guide will help you to find the spare part required if you already own a Gala Tent, but if you aren’t sure then give our team of experts a call on 01709 242454 and they’ll be happy to help.

The marquees for sale at Gala Tent are absolutely fine for use all year round, but this is not to say we recommend leaving them up all year round. They are incredibly strong products but they are not indestructible and severe weather can damage them. Use common sense around when you erect them if strong winds are predicted, and ensure any snow that falls on one is brushed off regularly. See our guide to using marquees in adverse weather conditions.

Yes, all of the marquees supplied by Gala Tent offer high water resistance. The covers of the 240gsm PE marquee are double-coated to ensure so water can infiltrate the material, and the 650gsm PVC is absolutely waterproof.

We recommend that you ensure your panels are all connected together firmly and use the correct number of bungee toggles to fix the covers to the framework to avoid any liquid finding its way in through the edges. Also ensure that all skirting on the bottom of your sides and end walls are placed correctly, facing away from the tent to protect the bottom of the marquee from rainwater.

Yes you can. These are generally referred to as Car Ports here at Gala Tent, and you can find a full range here.

It’s not generally a service that’s offered here at Gala Tent to have all of the marquee covers customised, but we are able to print onto the end walls above the doorway. We recommend that you contact our team on 01709 242454 to discuss your needs.

It’s a good question, but one that can be answered by the fact that we have spent over twenty years developing and honing our structures, and have grown to become the UK’s leading supplier of the marquees we well. We have the UK’s largest stocked warehouse of over sixty different marquee options and will dispatch on the same day when orders are placed before 4pm. Simply put, we know what we’re doing, and we want you to own the best without paying over the odds for it.

We believe in the old saying that if you buy cheap, you will buy twice. Purchasing a cheap marquee may appear like good business at the time, but considering that the cost dictates the quality of the materials you’ll receive, and you will be unlikely to have access to an effective selection of spare parts, it can quickly become a false economy when the structure is damaged quickly. By the time you are on your third or fourth structure you may as well have just bought a good quality one. We’ve spoken with countless customers who have had this same issue.

Beyond the cost implications, having a cheap structure over your head can also be unsafe. Some retailers supply 6m wide party tents with thin poles, and no supporting braces in the roof section, which is carrying the weight of the roof canopy. A tent this wide either must use superior quality framework, or ensure that the roof is supported. At Gala tent, we do both.

Here’s a video which can illustrate the cost that can be incurred by purchasing cheap structures.
