Welcome to our World
Which is Filled With Strawberries & Cream and Candy
We have two main red and white ranges of Big Tops and Circus style marquees, probably our most popular range is called Strawberries & Cream. Then below that there is information about the baby brother, our smaller candy striped marquee range which we imaginatively called Candy. We also have a fairly unique candy striped 6×6 pagoda which is our only structure suitable for hard ground and fits the circus theme nicely, perfect for urban events or smaller gardens.

Strawberries & Cream

Strawberries & Cream range goes from 12m round to 12 x 34.5m oval. (113 sq. m to 383 sq. m), table seating up to circa 450 and standing up to circa 750 – 1000 pending event circumstances. It’s our most popular wedding marquee.
Candy
Candy was designed to cater for garden parties where the space is not so wide. Making it a popular choice for smaller events or as an add on to the main big top. The main Candy marquees go from 8.5m round to 8.5 x 21m, but we also have 5 small pod candy’s which are perfect to compliment your larger structures.
The bigger tents look great alongside our mini big tops!
Capacities given on this page are a guide and we will always advise accordingly. Some customers have different ideas of what else they want to fit in the tent as well as just people. As an example the capacity for a 2 pole Big Top will be different if you are also having a large bar area and chill out space.
For detailed explanation of all the different prices and capacities.

Candy striped mini circus marquees; Baby Big Tops.
Such was the popularity of our red and white big tops that we decided to invest in miniature versions. We now stock a whole range of unique candy striped mini circus marquee that are available for hire as stand alones or are a very popular add on as part of a bigger package for cloakrooms, green rooms, chill out spaces etc.

Our Candy range is split into 2 types; Mini Candy and Candy Bar
Candy Bar is from 8.5m round to effectively 8.5 x 20 m oval.
The Mini Candy ones are from 2.5m up to 6m diameter round tents.

If you need different sizes or colours..do ask! The smaller range were purpose built for a specific job to match brand colours of the company.

From Fortune Teller’s Tent size to intimate festival venues.

They fit your circus theme amazingly and are a great addition to your main party marquee.

Awesome Intimate Party Venues

The great thing about Candy as a 8.5m round is that you have all the excitement of the big top atmosphere but at a much easier size for smaller gardens. You can still fit a 4 x 4m dance floor in there with space for a DJ and some creative seating. This gives you a lovely venue for your garden party marquee suitable for a party of 40 or 50 people.

As seen below in Rock, Cornwall. You can fit a lot in!

Do you need additional structures to compliment your main venue?

We have our Candy range of pod tents available in a range of different sizes. They make great additional structures next to your main venue.
These work really nicely as pod-tent add-ons, creating a perfect extra small space outside the main marquee or linked to the side of the tent.

These candy striped mini circus marquees are perfect for the baby big top experience!

Champagne tents, parties, pop-up bars, ticket booths, cloak rooms, kids corner, photo booth, smoking shelter, mini shows, cocktail bars, food vendors, interesting market stalls.

6x6m square marquee we like to call…Red Rock
gallery
No nonsense on the naming of this tent, the 6×6 is a rather large 6m x 6m pagoda. Built by Roder who are German tent manufacturers. It is extremely strong and looks fantastic as an entrance porch to one of our bigger structures.

We also keep a stock of 3×3 strong Gazebos.

These are useful for when an event needs lots of smaller side stalls. We’ve installed them as coconut shy and fairground side stalls at Oxford University. They’ve also been used as emergency weather cover for outdoor markets.
