Large event marquee

The occasion: was an annual corporate event in Thame, Oxfordshire, soon after Christmas.

The challenge: was to accommodate wining, dining and some serious speechifying with a loud dancing area and large-scale catering requirements. And to withstand the winter weather.

County Marquees' solution: three large marquees: one for catering, one for dining, and one for serving food and later on, for dancing, each one firmly anchored against strong winter winds. The floor of each event marquee was protected from possible waterlogging with hard floors underneath carpet.
