Abinger Marquees supply bespoke marquees throughout Godalming and the surrounding areas. It's down the road from our headquarters in Guildford so we know it well. If you are in Godalming and looking for a marquee for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, exhibitions, and corporate events then give us a call. As well as supplying the marquee, we can also provide the interior decor including linings, flooring, lighting, furniture, and decoration.
Some of our customers in Godalming include 'The Supervet' Noel Fitzpatrick, Godalming Sixth Form College and The Scratchers Pub.
We've provided all sorts of marquees in and around Godalming and for all occasions. Some that stand out are:
Here we provided a clearspan marquee for the Supervet himself - Professor Noel Fitzpatrick from TV. This marquee was used as a lecture theatre for 150 people, held at their premises in Eashing, Godalming. As they didn't have enough space in their main building, we constructed a marquee in their car park and solved their problem. We also supplied a screen, projector, sound, staging, heating and furniture. Plus our night sky lining to finish it off!
Find the right venue
A lot of people are able to site the marquee they require for their event at their home or at their work place (for corporate events), but if this is not an option there are many different places in Surrey that you could consider. Places including country houses, sports clubs, farms and local parks all have large areas of generally flat land that you can hire for such events.
If it is the case that you require a venue in the Surrey area we will be only too happy to assist you.
The time of year and weather
Although Surrey has some of the finest weather in the country, it can still be unpredictable at any time of year. This being the case, using a marquee for your event can shield you from the elements whether it is rain, sun or wind to make sure your event is a success.
If you require a marquee for an event in the winter months, the marquee can be equipped with a wooden floor to cover waterlogged surface and to prevent water seeping in form heavy rainfall. We can also supply you with either cabinet or indirect heating to make sure you and your guests stay warm.
In the summer you may require the marquee for shade from the sun. An ideal solution for this could be to have a marquee canopy (a marquee with no walls).
Many events incorporate some form of catering and depending on the capacity of the event and your culinary skills you may wish to hire in a catering firm to undertake this task.
Many catering companies will bring a full a working professional kitchen with them which can be based in a catering marquee while other companies will work with the on site facilities. Options for food can be anything from a simple buffet for people to nibble at to a sit down fine dining experience. If in the situation that you only cutlery, plates, table linen and glassware, there are also plenty of companies that will provide this service in and around Surrey.
To add something special to your event you may want to consider providing some form of Entertainment for your guests. This may include ideas such as DJ and disco, a live band, magicians, circus acts and many more.
Other facilities you may need to consider for your event are items such as toilets and generators.
If there are no toilet facilities available to use on site then it is advisable to hire some in. There are various types of portable toilet that you can hire in. For a small event you may wish to hire in single polyjohn units (tardis), if it is a large event you may want to consider hiring a toilet trailer which can be split into both male and female section.
Much like the toilets, if there is no power available on site you may have to hire in a generator. This can be important especially if you have on site caterers powering electric ovens and other electrical heating equipment. Generators come with various power outputs with the size dependant on your requirements.
