What is a Marquee?


A marquee is a very large and grand tent where parties, weddings, and other social gatherings are held. These can be hired from companies who will erect the marquee for you as it takes qualified professionals to do it properly and safely. Marquees can also be bought but tend to be on a smaller scale and are very expensive, and you would need to put up the marquee yourself or hire someone to do it for you which will also add to the cost.
