We are extremely proud of our long commitment to marquee excellence and personal service to all our clients, each event is unique and our friendly and personal team will go great lengths in ensuring every detail is considered.

What type of marquees do we offer?

Over the past 25 years, Alresford Marquees has gained a vast amount of experience in a number of different tent styles and we are constantly reviewing our equipment to ensure we offer the latest in current marquee designs and frames.

There are three key types of marquees, the most popular being clearspan marquees, the traditional poled marquees and Pagoda marquees.  We stock all three of these and which one you require will be dependent on your event needs.
