If you have a large function coming up and too many invited guests for the usual venues of choice, you are bound to feel despondent and out of options. Tent hire has been saving the day for many, and for many years. Hiring a tent is the tried-and-tested solution and we have just the selection of tents for you to choose from. Big tents for hire at TentWorx have been the ultimate solution for thousands of events. Why? Because tents provide a great alternative to a regular venue and let’s face it; they can be a lot more charming besides. With a tent, you can choose the size of your venue and alter it as your guest list grows or shrinks. Versatility is guaranteed when hiring a tent.

Outdoor events can be great and certainly offer something different to a regular indoor event, especially at night. What is not so great is the potential for wind, rain, and chilly weather to ruin everything. If you are tempted to host your large event outdoors, it is therefore important that you consider providing cover for your guests as well as your equipment and décor. Checking the weather prior to your event is a must.

When hiring a tent for your next event, it is important to consider a few things. First and foremost, if your function is big enough to warrant a large tent, you must ensure that your guest list is confirmed before you hire the actual structure. The last thing you want is to do is hire a tent that is too big or too small. Unfortunately, just like venues, tents can be booked out well in advance, so do your investigations and gather quotes as early on as possible. The next thing to consider is space. You should allow at least 1,5 m2 of space per guest and you will have to make sure that there is enough space available at the venue for the size tent that will provide cover to the number of people attending. Guests do not want to be rubbing shoulders all evening, so make sure that you take the sizes of your tables and chairs and the layout of the event into consideration.

Safety is of the utmost importance. Make sure that your tent hire supplier can professionally rig or set up the tent. Make sure that any ropes and stakes are clearly visible or cordoned off, so that no one can trip on them or walk into them. Also, make sure that you have a safety certificate to confirm that the tent is safe and that insurance is provided for damage or injury during the course of your event, even if it is through no fault of your own. Also, make sure that you have someone available to check the supports during the course of the event. Fire extinguishers must always be available, in case of a fire.

Large tents are tricky to erect and to break down, so it is best to leave it to the professionals. Do not try to save time by handling things yourself. All of these precautions might seem a bit much, but when you are dealing with many people and a large structure, it is always better to be prepared than to be caught out without essential safety and security mechanisms in place.
