50th Birthday party marquee
The occasion was a 50th birthday party for 100 people.
The venue was a medium sized London garden with a narrow low lying patio with wide steps up to an irregular terrace and a steeply-sloping lawn.
The challenge was to erect a marquee structure that abutted the house and gave protection from the elements whilst at the same time setting off the charms of the different levels of the terraces and the sloping garden behind. The marquee was to serve as a chill-out and dancing area, with food being served inside the house.
County Marquees' solution was an L-shaped marquee covering the patio and climbing up the steps to the terrace with the help of different lengths of legs to support the marquee.
The legs of the marquee needed to drop right down on either side of the eight foot wide steps.
The marquee bowed slightly in the middle, where the wide steps called for deep leg drops. Frame marquees can accommodate some bowing.
