Tom and the guys at the Alternative Stretch Tent Company were fantastic

The tents were beyond our expectations and the service from the team was excellent from the get go.

The site visit made a huge difference to us to visualise how the set up would look at our venue and Tom was really helpful with recommending how best to configure the tents. We loved the flexibility you can have with the stretch tents without compromising on the look, we were able to decide on the day of setup, which sides we wanted up or down without any hassle at all.

All our guests commented on how great the tents looked and we would definitely pick stretch tents over a traditional marquee for any future events. They ticked all the boxes and more and contributed towards making our wedding the perfect day.

I definitely recommend Alternative Stretch Tents

Tom and his team created an amazing space for us with the most beautiful tent. They were very efficient at putting it up and taking it down, and by carefully working it all out, they made a beautiful space which gave a fantastic atmosphere for the party. The tent was so elegant and the lighting was brilliant, and we were incredibly happy that we had it. I can not wait until we have another party to get it again

it absolutely created the right atmosphere

Everything was great with Alternative Stretch Tents from the friendly service, to the competitive price, to the helpful and willing staff. Of course the best thing was the impact of the look of the stretch tent at the party - it absolutely created the right atmosphere and "wow" factor!

We would highly recommend this company

Fantastic stretch tent and rustic wooden furniture, exactly what we wanted an informal casual look/feel for our BBQ/Pool party. The lighting inside the tent and around the garden was amazing and we had many compliments. The team were so helpful - from initial first meet, to set up and take down. You would never know a tent had been there. We would highly recommend this company.

They offered an incredibly reasonable price point and the service was second to none

I would 100% recommend Alternative Stretch! They offered an incredibly reasonable price point and the service was second to none. As an event manager myself I am sure that I made a somewhat high maintenance bride but nothing was too much for Tom and his team.
