Marquee Hire for Graduation Celebrations

When you’re planning a graduation ceremony, you have a whole host of things to think about. If you’re worried about the weather, location or space restrictions then hiring a marquee could be the perfect addition to your plans.

An Outside Space, Come Rain or Shine

It would be a shame to be stuck indoors on such an important day. Large crowds can also heat up any space quickly, so giving the option for your celebrating students and their relatives to head outside with their celebratory glass of bubbly is a much more comfortable arrangement. A marquee will make the best use of the outside space on your campus by providing some shade from the summer heat, or some shelter in case you get an unexpected shower.


During the ceremonies you’re going to need to seat all the students, relatives and teachers on furniture that matches and looks smart. If you’re only rolling it out once or twice a year it may not seem worth buying this furniture – in this case, Andrews can help. We hire out large quantities of good quality marquee furniture for all functions that are perfect for this kind of occasion – get in touch to discuss your options for furniture hire in Bristol.


Making it Easier to Stay on Campus

Many universities have to hold graduation ceremonies either off campus or in specific larger university buildings due to space restrictions. Adding a marquee will extend the space under cover that you have available, making it a good option for campuses with limited inside space or very large student bodies. Students may prefer to graduate on the campuses they have been studying in if possible, so it makes sense to try and accommodate this.
