Will a marquee damage my lawn?
No not really, unless it is an extreamly wet lawn with very little drainage. Sometimes the entrances and exits can become a little soggy with high footfall. We advise in these kind of conditions a hard floor or walkway is best. There is generally just a slight yellowing of the grass, which quickly grows back.
Do Marquees have to go onto grass?
No, our marquees can be erected on any surface, provided there is some kind of anchoring. We are able to use water waights if pegging into the ground is not recommended.
What’s the difference between a Traditional Marquee and a Clearspan?
These two types of marquee are entirely different in ‘feel’. The traditional Marquee is pegged down with ropes, has poles inside, and is made of canvas. It creates a rustic, country-style or village fete atmosphere. A Clearspan, by contrast, has a contemporary feel with its clean white PVC walls and optional windows. A Clearspan Marquee can be fully lined and can be erected on a solid surface.
Can I have a marquee in winter?
Yes, we do provide marquees over the winter period, Clearspan Marquees are most suited to winter conditions, especially when coupled with a thermostatically controlled heater – which we can provide for you. Along with glass fronted doors as your entrance and exit to keep in the heat.

I had the pleasure of working alongside Emma & team for a Wedding back in the summer. I've worked in a fair few marquees now and theirs was something special that I'd never seen before. It was stunningly beautiful and put together so thoughtfully and carefully including everything inside.Sent on 04/12/2019
The attention to detail inside was something I've never seen before and just took things to a whole new level. Emma also coordinated the entire event and was extremely helpful and professional throughout helping us out with anything we required, nothing was too much to ask.
We already highly recommend these guys to our clients and we really look forward to working with them again in the near future.

We have used Raise the Roof Marquees for a family party recently. Emma and Simon go above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly. Every aspect had been covered and we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing everything was in safe hands. Five stars from usSent on 04/12/2019
