A Guide to Stretch Tent hire

So you have an event coming up, and you’re thinking you might need to hire a stretch tent. There’s no need to be daunted – for the most part, it’s a fairly straight forward process! There are a few things you should know first, to make the process a bit easier and ensure you get good value for money.



TENT CONDITION AND QUALITY
It’s important to note that not all stretch tents are created equal. Some are waterproof, some are not. Some are clean and gorgeous, some are old and stained. So before you confirm your stretch tent hire London and surrounds - be sure to ask for photos. Ask if the tent is 100% waterproof, and how old the tent is. Ask if it has any stains or any visible patches.



TENT SIZE vs COST
The next thing you should know is that stretch tents come in different sizes, and are charged per square meter (sqm). For instance, a bigger tent will cost more, and a smaller tent will cost less. The way to work out the size is as follows:

Seated Dinner setting – 2-2.5sqm/person

Cocktail/Standing setting – 1.5sqm/person

Cinema Style seating – 1sqm/person

So to put this information into a practical picture, if you’re having 70 guests for a sit-down dinner you’ll need a tent that’s around 150 square meters – so a 10m x 15m tent should do the trick.

Keep in mind that if the weather is bad, or very windy, you might need to close the tent up a bit – ie drop one or two sides down to the ground. This will take away a bit of space in the tent, so the tent will need to be a little bit bigger.

A good tent company will offer free site meetings, where they come out to your house or venue, and meet with you to discuss the different options for your event.


LIGHTING & ACCESSORIES
Finally, it would be good to consider is adding some lighting for inside the tent, to make the tent come alive at night. The addition of lights makes the atmosphere in your stretch tent truly magnificent, and will most certainly add the ‘WOW’ factor to your event.
