Are you looking for interesting marquees for your event in Cornwall or Devon?

Bigtopmania is based on the Devon side of the  River Tamar border (border!?) pretty much in the centre of Devon and Cornwall near Launceston.
We live in Devon but have a Cornwall postcode but are only 45 mins from Exeter and Truro, so are centrally placed to supply marquees and event equipment to events and weddings in both Cornwall and Devon, as well as far away.
Literally in fields further away!

Marquee Hire Cornwall.

Are we a Cornish marquee hire company or a Devon marquee hire company.  Does it matter? We rent marquee and event equipment throughout the area.

We are certainly a south-west marquee hire company with our marquee hire Cornwall install team based mainly from Plymouth to Bristol.

We go almost anywhere and take our marquee hire services to rustic country weddings, garden parties, birthday parties, coastal celebrations, boutique arts festivals, music festivals, town and country events, outdoor events, theatrical events,  agricultural shows and a host of other event styles, let alone tv and film production supplies. 

For Cornwall wedding marquees, we are totally on tend with rustic theme weddings, festival weddings, circus weddings, alternative weddings, unusual weddings, boutique weddings, bijou weddings, DIY weddings, theme weddings, rock and roll weddings colourful weddings, red and white weddings; any more?

We mostly have colourful marquees and try not being old school with the flouncy white marquee linings, up lighters and chandeliers type of package though there is undoubtably a place for them still.

Looking for circus tents? Vintage marquees? Sailcloth marquees? Candy striped marquees? Canvas marquees? Pagoda marquees? Free standing marquees ? Mini marquees? Baby big tops?

Let’s concentrate on memorable events and exciting, creative weddings!

We have a lot to offer the event sector in Cornwall and enjoy working on our doorstep!  Bring on those cliff top coastal weddings!

Our event equipment includes:  marquees, flooring, furniture, dance floor, lighting, electrics, decor, theme props, circus equipment, entertainers and hands on play activities.
If we don’t have it there are some excellent local event suppliers we can recommend to complement our services.

We are more than happy to work with other wedding and event suppliers and between us we can create all you need or if you prefer to add your own styling flourishes you can decorate to your heart’s content, stamping you unique style on the marquee.

In practice, it’s the joint efforts that create magnificent memorable events:

Half Term Circus Fun

Half term circus fun with PeteZa and Lucas Jet at Dingles!

The February school’s half term saw the Dingles Heritage Fairground experimenting with opening at this time of year for the first time.   Roaring success!

Dingles is an indoor attraction in Devon, managed by the Fairground Heritage Trust.   It is a collection of national importance restoring, maintaining and presenting fairground memoirs and we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep.  If in the area it really is worth a visit.

The attraction has lots of museum type exhibits dedicated to fairground history, circus and steam, living vehicles, transport,  rides, stalls, artworks, amusement machines, and a huge indoor fairground with beautiful rides and stalls you can go on.   Yes it’s a trip down memory lane but also has lots of appeal to youngsters.   Prepare to ride!

During this half term week we were asked to provide extra circus skills and entertainment.

For the Valentine’s weekend, PeteZa came in all fired up to celebrate the occasion… Hence the dress style!  Mr Lover Lover!

As well as some circus skills to have a go with, random mini-shows and pop-up entertainments, he  provided a huge range of crazy balloon sculptures obviously with an excess of heart shapes and pink balloons for valentines.

Once the weekend valentines theme was out-of-the-way, the fun continued every day with more balloon twisting, (kiddie life-size alien puppets being very popular) and entertainment.

An alien! completely unlike anything seen on earth. And some balloon models!
