‘QUALITY AND EXPERTISE’ SAYS SOUTH EAST BUSINESS MAGAZINE

South East Business Magazine front page

Marquee Hire is a company that has grown from a small idea into a successful enterprise with James Morris heading up the team. James saw the opportunity for marquee rental in Surrey and realised the potential. This young entrepreneur started with one marquees for hire and soon added many to his collection. Read about the recent interview for the South East Business Magazine.

We’re delighted to be featured over two pages in the South East Business magazine with our Managing Director, James Morris profiled in The Boss slot.

This mentions our values of ‘quality and expertise’ and ‘the speedy rise of Trafalgar Marquees with the impressive list of clients extending to The Army, MoD, the German Embassy in London, The Royal Society and Hyatt Hotels’. In her editorial, the Editor, Christine Rayner praises James’s ‘self-discipline, foresight and sheer bravado’ in setting up his business as a student, which was ‘a bold risk-taking step. It must have taken nerve to do so, yet it has paid off handsomely’.

Much of the work, he admits, involves “emotional occasions” such as weddings, funerals and high-profile business gatherings. And this requires careful pre-event discussions, to ensure Trafalgar provides what is required.

Wedding marquee hire is on the rise as they offer a more affordable and flexible wedding option and the same goes for party marquee hire.

No job is considered too big or too small. James and his team of 10 permanent staff (which can rise to 35 in the busy summer season) are happy to consider any approach for business, even the niche roles such as providing cover for part of the major residential and retail complex Number One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, when there was a water leak.

It’s your day in every way with Marquee Hire events

by on May.20, 2016, under Marquee Hire

SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH OPENS WOODBERRY WETLANDS

David Attenborough in one of our marquees for the launce of Woodberry Wetlands.

Our team had quite the ‘wild’ day out last weekend. Woodberry Wetlands approached our company to provide an event space for the opening of their beautiful wetlands centre on 30th April, after all it has been closed to the public for 200 years.

To add to the sense of occasion, the centre was opened by eminent broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough.

With a note from the client; “Thanks for a grand job at Woodberry Wetlands launch”, it is another success to add to our proved track record in delivering outstanding marquee events.

THE EVENT

The opening of Woodberry Wetlands, a beautiful space centre to be opened by Sir David Attenborough on 30th April.

THE CHALLENGE

The challenge was simple for Marquee Hire Surrey, to create an exceptional marquee event space to hold VIP’s, press, and of course, Sir David for the opening of this stunning space in London.

Build and de-rig were to be on the same day, so our team needed to use a structure that could be set up and taken down within this timelines.

THE SOLUTION

Whilst the site spans the size of over 13 football pitches, the size allocated for the marquee was somewhat smaller.

Marquee Hire arrived on site on Saturday at 0730 to begin build of a 6m x21m marquee, which needed to be weighted using our marquee weights as it was situated on hard standing. The marquee needed one side open to enjoy the stunning vistas across the wetlands, with access to the rear for catering a services. At one end of the marquee a small stage was constructed for speeches and formalities.

There is no function that is too much of a challenge for Marquee Hire and Marquee Hire Sussex to handle. Their years of knowledge and expertise shows in the professionalism they show with every event.

Time for a party? Hire a marquee from Marquee Hire

by on Jun.19, 2015, under Marquee Hire

Marquee Hire Surrey have very informative blog posts on their site, if you are thinking of hiring a marquee they are definitely the people to contact. Our company was wanting to hire a marquee for a large corporate function and we did not know where to turn. Marquee Hire came highly recommended so we contacted them and they gave us brilliant service from beginning to end.

This was a great day!

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT LAYOUT FOR MY MARQUEE?

When considering marquee layouts, and what seating to choose, there is a large amount of choice available; a certain aspect will be dictated by the type of function and whether it is a fully seated, part seating, or standing function.

Whilst we stock a wide variety of furniture, it is key to consider what atmosphere you are trying to create in your marquee, so that the furniture can be used to help add to this.

For fully seated functions we would recommend either 8 guests sat at 5ft round tables or 10 guests sat at 5ft 6″ round tables, allowing a 3x3m space for each table. We also stock 6ft round tables to seat 12 guests, however these are suited for more formal functions, as due to the size it makes it much harder for guests to speak to each other across the table. For top tables, for more traditional events such as weddings, we have long tables (4ft or 6ft long), and oval tables to suit a varying number of guests. Of course, like all of our marquees and events, none of this is set in stone, we can fine tune the furniture and marquee to suit your finer requirements.

For an informal function or part seated buffet using a range of table sizes works very well. It also breaks down the structure to create a more informal atmosphere. 3ft round tables work particularly well. We also have a variety of other seating available for hire including cubed seats, sofas, poseur tables; which can all add to the atmosphere, and create another area in the marquee, please feel free to browse the furniture we have available.

We are always happy to draft table layouts for our clients or to show other corporate events, private parties or weddings we have helped create in marquees, so do feel free to drop us a line if would like some assistance, or just a friendly chat about your event.

With over 20 years in the industry and leaders in marquee hiring they have a vast amount of experience combined with expertise makes them a dynamic team always coming up with new ideas and enhancing their skills and product range.

If you are getting married and wishing for that very special fairy tale wedding speak to them for the best advice on wedding marquees hire available.

Some ideas that caught my eye on their site:

IMG_0263_2

Marquee hire, rustic, vintage

Show marquee, panoramic windows

Why not have a Chinese hat marquee for a small reception area? Or make the marquee individual with our huge range of coloured roof overlays, linings and swags? Black Starcloth over the dance floor? The possibilities are endless. We can make the marquee as grand or as simple as you like. One of our advisors would be delighted to come and visit you with our portfolio to discuss your requirements.

I have also decided to share an interesting article I found on their website:

HOW DO WE DELIVER A RELIABLE POWER SUPPLY TO THE MARQUEE?

A recent large electrical fire in London, brought the importance of the provision of power for any marquee hire to the forefront of our minds here at JF & Trafalgar Marquee Hire.

The correct provision of power for any event, and outdoor event involving marquee hire is crucial. It is also often an area that is overlooked, and one that is brushed to the side.

Whilst this may be the case, it does not solve the issue of providing the correct supply for the demand in the marquee. Not only can this lead to serious health and safety implications (it’s worth noting that we are members of our industry body MUTA). It could also seriously impact the smooth running of you event. Not to mention, the worst case scenario, plunging it into darkness.

At JF & Trafalgar Marquees we would much rather focus on the event itself and its positive outcome, helping you on your way to deliver an amazing, and unforgettable experience (for all the right reasons). To that end, electrical supply is one of the key factors we discuss and advise our clients on. To ensure your exacting requirements are met, we use qualified and registered (17th edition) electricians for power installations in our marquees. They are consulted from concept to delivery and updated on the life cycle of your event, taking into account any changes that may occur, regardless of how large or small these may be.

On larger functions and events, involving significant cabling and distribution, we often supply an onsite standby electrician in addition to our standard 24hr call out facility. Should you be curious about how we do what we do, an example of such an event, can be seen here (where we supplied, a mains generator, standby and standby electrician, along with all cabling, sockets, and lighting).

The type of power supply we recommend and install, depends on the equipment and requirements from services in and around the marquee. Typically, this takes the form of a mains installation from the house or nearest building; this may be 32amps or up to 63amp three phase. Once the supply is taken from the house/building or generator, it is fed to a temporary distribution board within the marquee or catering/services area and then distributed to all relevant areas of the marquee. This could include catering areas, band, DJ, bars etc.

In addition we also offer a full generator hire service, should it not be possible to access mains electricity. Alternatively a generator can be hired simply as a standby (we supply these with automatic changeover) should the main generator or mains power fail.
