University Ball Marquee Hire

So you’re planning a university ball this summer and you’ve got some pretty strong ideas about what you want. But how do you turn these plans into a reality? And where do you start with marquee hire?

Well first you need to decide what facilities you want to offer. Perhaps you would like your ball to have if not all, then the majority of the following:

  • A dance floor
  • Somewhere to eat
  • A fully stocked bar(s)
  • An outdoor seating area
  • A games area

Stylish Entertainment


Marquees are a stylish way to accommodate all of these facilities and more. They are a great way to keep your students entertained throughout the evening and into the early hours of the morning and provide extra space … which at the end of the event, can be dismantled!

Perhaps you have a specific theme or colour scheme in mind. Perhaps one of these might spark some ideas:

  • A diamond jubilee street party theme
  • A chocolate theme
  • Red, white and blue for the Olympics
  • A Las Vegas theme
  • A colour scheme based on your university colours
  • A Medieval banquet theme

Whatever you decide on, you can customise your party marquee or marquees to fit your chosen look. This includes the inside and outside of the structure, the furniture, place settings, lighting and décor.

Health and Safety

Once the fun bits are decided, it’s time to think about the safety aspects and potential hazards. It’s worth:

  • Providing adequate cover for your guests if it rains and ventilation if it is very hot
  • Working to prevent trips and falls outside the marquees
  • Making sure you have first aid facilities on site in case someone becomes ill or is injured
  • Avoiding damage to expensive equipment
  • Being aware of fire hazards

It’s important that you get these things right so that your guests remember the great party rather than something that went wrong. A competent marquee provider will be able to advise you on the potential risks and the best solutions.
