The ground bar not only provides more security in adverse weather conditions is keeps the whole structure square and in line with no stray leg pole, giving a really taut appearance with no flapping panels. The ground bar can also be weighted down and anchored with the heavy duty pegs.Read More
I made a commercial decision many years ago not to compete on price but compete on quality and value for money. I was well aware of low-price items claiming to be the high specification of Gala Tent. However after many case studies it was clear they are clearly not. What I did was invest in research and development, design and technology and produced the finest range for marquees and gazebos on the market. And I'm sure again you will agree that you can in fact make anything cheaper and we have all bought a product on Price and been very disappointed which comes at a COST. And guess what, Gala Tent is still the market leader and recently posted double digit growth in our first quarter of this year alone.
Gala Tent is the only British manufacturer of garden marquees. All our competitors despatch from either Germany, Denmark, France or even China and pose as UK companies by using a .co.uk address. Return postage can cost £100's leaving you with more COSTS and replacement parts will not be available. You can check for yourself where the company is located by visiting https://www.site24x7.com/find-website-location.html
Don't get caught out, buy right, first time !!!

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, ground bar rails, bungee straps, side panels, end panels, canopy, internal and external sidewall pegs, guild ropes and heavy-duty pegs.
