Hiring a marquee in Johannesburg is certainly a viable alternative for those who want to avoid the costs of the top venues in the area. Hosting an event in Johannesburg, or anywhere else in Gauteng for that matter, isn’t necessarily cheap, and if you want to cut back on costs without compromising on aesthetic appeal and functionality, a marquee is the solution. The beauty of hiring a marquee is that your venue options suddenly open up. You have far more scope to work with. Whether you are setting your marquee up on an open field, in your backyard, in a reserve or on the beach, you can rest assured that with the right setup and décor, it will be a magical event to be remembered.

Hiring marquees is quite popular in Johannesburg. It could be the versatility that a marquee offers, or it could be the cost-effective rates attached… or maybe it’s a combination of both! We think it is. At TentWorx, we present the market with a range of various types and sizes of marquees, which are all quickly snapped up for hosting weddings, birthday celebrations, anniversaries, graduation parties, christenings, baby showers, and so on.

There’s really no limitation to the type of event that you can host with a marquee, and we can help you to select the right type and size based on a few variables, such as the space you have available, what type of surface it will be rigged on, how many guests you will have, what sort of seating arrangement you will have, whether you need a dance floor and address/speech area or not, and so on.

Of course, there’s a lot for you to decide in terms of creating ambiance within the tent. By browsing through various inspirational websites, such as Pinterest, you can gather a wealth of decorating and layout ideas, and can start to piece your event together. Our part of the process will be supplying you with a tent that’s immaculately clean and in exceptionally good condition. We will deliver it to your venue, along with any other items you may need to hire, such as tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and catering equipment, and set it up safely and securely for you.

There are choices to be made in terms of the type of tent you need. You will find that most companies offer three main types of tents for hire. These include the frame tents, which can come with or without removable sides, peg and pole marquees, and of course the ever-popular and ultra-modern Bedouin tent, which is also called a stretch tent. While a lot depends on the ground for rigging, which tent you choose will also depend on the type of event you are hosting. For instance, peg and pole tents are often seen at horse races, while trendy weddings and cocktail parties often opt for the Bedouin stretch tent option. Decorating a Bedouin tent doesn’t take much, as the tent itself is a feature. You can use spotlights or fairy lights to create some added charm. Decorating a frame tent, or peg and pole marquee tent is a little more involved, and will require draping, lighting, table gifts and more.
