Gala Tent PVC Frame Warranty   Gala Tent PVC Fabric Warranty


Gala Tent™ Marquees are perfect for many different occasions and provide a truly affordable event solution, whether for home or commercial use; ideal for Trade Stands, Market Stalls, Car Port, Garden Parties, Functions, Weddings, Storage and Community Fetes. Gala Tent™ is a trusted quality trademarked product that will keep your event covered, come rain or shine.

View the new, dynamic PVC, which features premier quality, self-cleaning 100% Heavy-Duty PVC – we believe it’s the most durable marquee of its kind in the world! Gala Tent™ is the result of over a decade of improvements and modifications, much of which has been stimulated by suggestions and feedback from Gala Tent™ clients. The focus is on product flexibility, functionality and durability. The goal is to ensure that Gala Tent™ remains the best quality commercial quality structure in its class.


Gala Tent™ is manufactured in seventeen different sizes. If you find that you need a larger marquee at a later date, the Gala Tent™ Multi-Bay option offers the flexibility you need, benefiting from a 2m add-on bay option. Gala Tent™ is supplied with a manufacturer’s quality guarantee. Anyone can understand the frustration of misplacing a pole, peg or panel. With Gala Tent you can simply replace any missing part by ordering it online. How many other marquee suppliers offer that level of customer service?

Non - Toxic Steel Structural Components

* Gala Tent™ steel tubular pole framework is carefully treated with white powder coating, NOT toxic galvanized or zinc coated paint. This method can potentially be dangerous to humans due to the acid that is used in the manufacturing process. Remember that your hands will be coming into contact with the poles, and in some cases, this can lead to poisoning. Galvanized steel also stains the material which then makes the marquee fabric more perishable, this is why Gala Tent™ use powder coating for the perfect elegant finish.

* Gala Tent™ powder coated steel joint connectors secure to the pole frame with locating heavy duty 50mm winged threaded bolts, with no tools required as the specially designed bolt can be tightened by hand.

* Steel base plates are used on the leg poles, which can also be anchored down for extra security with pegs provided.

* Side skirt and sidewall ground pegs are all included in this package.

* Gala Tent™ Marquees are super quality, ahead of the competition with quality price and value for money. We do not sacrifice quality for margin or seek to compete with off-the-shelf, Chinese mass-produced products which do not stand the test of time.

(COPQ) Cost of Poor Quality

"The below video was sent in to our customer service department, by an individual who asked specifically to create awareness of his story after purchasing a cheaper tent elsewhere. The video shows a mass-produced, cheap Chinese-manufactured inferior product which is not suitable for its purpose. Clear video evidence shows the poor quality in manufacturing and misleading descriptions. The frames are sometimes advertised as galvanised, when they are in fact zinc coated and done on the cheap. This can be quite toxic to the touch, and once in contact with the tent covers will eventually stain and perish them. Another clear give-away to look for, is if the range of 6m wide marquees are limited to a height of 3m at the centre apex. This is to save on manufacturing and material costs, and it would be wise to stay clear of this particular tent and any company selling them. If you have had a similar story of events please let us know."

True Quality 100% PVC Tarpaulin Covers

* All canopies are made from approx. 650g/m² PVC which are double stitched for extra strength, and UV resistant. With welded seams they are sealed water-resistant, and most importantly, they are British fire-rated to BS 5438 and BS 7837

Gala Tent Material

Gala Tent™ marquees come in two material variations; PE (polyethylene) and PVC. There are a few levels of PVC and PE quality in the market place, and some unscrupulous sellers will incorrectly advertise them as 240gsm or 500gsm. We have even seen material being advertised at 650g to match Gala Tent™ PVC quality, and upon inspection, they are closer to 380gsm PVC and 160gsm PE.

Here is a video case study below

"If you are still unsure then order a sample of material from Gala Tent and few other sellers and compare we will guarantee you that nothing compares to Gala Tent™ quality."

* Gala Tent™ Marquees which are 6m wide have an extra A framework, and extra centre ridge frame. The height is also enhanced and increased to 3.7m, engineered for safety, whilst our competitors supply 3m unsafe versions which do not compare to Gala Tent™.

* You can control the climate and atmosphere of your event by removing individual 2m sidewalls or end panel sections instantly, to accommodate the occasion.

* Gala Tent™ canopies are manufactured in a seamed one-piece roof section which is an important feature, as this enables the material to remain nice and taut for many years of use.

* Both the end gable sections and the side panel sections can be completely or individually removed to make a canopy only structure, which would be ideal for use as a car port.

* The end gable walls feature both a wide entrance and a narrow doorway that can be rolled up.

* The entrances are opened and closed using heavy duty zip or Dutch laced systems exclusive to Gala Tent™

View Video of Super Quality Dutch Lacing

* Large Georgian panoramic windows in each sidewall section let light flood in to the marquee, and every window panel benefits from a blind cover suitable for blocking light, privacy and storage.

* The windows are made from windproof hard-wearing PVC material.

* All side and end panels overlap using zip, bungee or lace and Velcro. This ensures no draughts, and limited movement of covers flapping in the wind, reducing the annoying cracking noise.

* Package includes: full framework and joint fittings, bungee straps, side panels, end panels, canopy, internal and external sidewall pegs, guide ropes and guide rope pegs.

Enhance Your Company Brand Image.

The Gala Tent™ PVC range is used by many of Britain’s leading hire companies for promotional events to raise brand awareness. The quality finish of the Gala Tent™ range provides the qualities that companies seek to incorporate into their brand identities. You can raise awareness of your product, company and campaign through the use of colour printing on the Gala Tent™ canopy and gable end walls. Ask our specialist contact centre staff if you require printing and branding.

Safety Precautions

It is very important to anchor your marquee to the ground even in the calmest weather conditions. The Ground Bar Rail Set is not included in this package, and for Ratchet Tie Down Kits, and Heavy-Duty Ground Rail Pegs and Storage Bags, please see related items.

*** Gala Tent only sell marquees in the colour white because this is the most popular colour and has the highest second-hand re-sale value. ***

we unpacked the gazebos this week and I am so impressed with the fact that the side covers come in a fantastic carry case.All 4 of my gazebos now have matching bags. Makes is look so much more professional. I am so impressed with the service and quality of Gala Tent products.When I am discussing an event I actually mention that our marquees and tents are from Gala so they know the quality is high. So surprised from initially ringing to get a £2.99 spare foot to spending over £3000 in a matter of 5 weeks. That is only because I am so impressed with everything.
