Summer ball marquee
The occasion was a summer ball at a Cambridge University college.
The challenge was to set up multiple marquees for various functions (dancing, performance, bars...), while at the same time:
- taking account of different stakeholders, each with their own plans for using the space
- Making a minimal impact on college life
- Set up just before, and take down and collect soon after the event to enable a reception to take place in the space
The solution: Lots of flexible frame marquees of various sizes: 15m x 21m, 9m x 12m, three 3m x 6m and four 3m x 3m. Also a 3m x 3m Chinese Hat marquee. All were set up speedily and silently and to the tight timetable the college needed. Here is some feedback to that effect from the President of the Ball Committee:
“The marquees ... looked good ... and were erected incredibly quickly and efficiently with no disturbance to college life. ... As a committee we also strongly believe that County Marquees must be one of the best value for money companies out there because we had such a tight budget but managed to get everything we wanted in the end!”
