Hire colourful circus tents for events in Oxford

University Event Marquee Hire – Circus Big Tops & colourful tents

If you are thinking of university marquee hire, or for any other academic or student event propose,  white clear-span frame marquees are lovely of course and they can create incredible, large indoor spaces for fantastic events.

But why not add a unique touch and step out from the crowd!  Grab some colour! Boost your event theme and visibility!

Are you planning next years College Summer Ball,  Student awards ceremony, Open day, PTA Function, School fete,  Theatre production or  Freshers fairs?

You may well need one of our tents!  Or even some entertainment!

Bigtopmania have been lucky enough to work all around the country for various colleges, schools and universities.

In recent years this has included 3 trips to Scotland for St Andrews’s Big Top Balls with mammoth circus tent installs;  various Oxford and Cambridge University summer balls, Bristol University, Birmingham University,  Colleges including Bedfordshire, Chichester,  Schools including Harrow.

It seems our alternative is proving to be a popular option for university and college event marquee hire…we are currently in talks with University of Northampton for a Feb 2018 event.

Summer 2017 schools, colleges and University marquee hire fun & frolics…a few recent events!

Most recently we supplied 2 brand new colourful circus tents/big tops to Bristol University for their fresher’s event on The Downs. The brightly coloured 12m round with new 8 foot walls for larger feeling space and a brand new 6x12m traditional marquee.  The 2 tie in nicely to each other but helped to give the event a colourful focal point in the middle of their site.

Earlier in the season the boys had a good journey up to Cambridge for a short days work where only the roof of a fairly small open-sided tent was required as a bit of sun/rain shelter and also to add to their circus and funfair theme at the Newnham College Garden Party.

Casting the mind further back to last year, the team were working hard in Oxford in the beautiful grounds but pouring rain!  We even had a very close call with a lightening strike.  For a rather large  Oxford university marquee hire  install at Wadham College Wonderland ball of 4 Big Tops and various small tents.. What a beautiful event.
