How large a tent will I require?
As a general rule for event planning, you should plan on about 15sqft of space per person when seated at tables. You should deduct from this any place within the marquee which can not be used for standing i.e. any area with tables / chairs or a stage. A more comfortable rule of thumb is 10 sq ft per guest this gives people more room to move about. The different sizes of tents we offer.
