I Need A Field For My Marquee!  Where Do I Start And What Do I Need To Know?

Where Do I Start?  Please Help!!!!!


Help!  I can’t find a field for my marquee!  Ok first things first, please don’t panic.  We are here to help and if you don’t already have a field for your marquee, we can help you in finding one.  You’re not on your own with this if you have booked a Swanky Marquee.


We do have a list of examples of good sites in many areas that we have sited our marquees for other clients and we can talk you through all of these.  If there isn’t a field on our list that suits your needs, then we can cast the net wider.  There are lots of websites simply designated to providing fields for hire for events.  Some of these are:

Does The Field Need To Have Toilets?


Not necessarily.  It’s great if there is access to toilets, but many of the weddings and events we carry out have portable toilets booked.  And long gone are the grotty toilets we sometimes see at festivals.  These toilets are swanky!  The posh loos we book have Molten Brown hand washes, LED lighting, and TV’s to keep your guests entertained if they are queuing.  Check out our posh loos here https://swankymarquees.co.uk/extras/


Does The Field Need To Have Electricity?


Not necessarily.  To run the marquee we just need an ordinary socket and we use a 50m armoured extension cable.  So as long as there is a power point within 50m of where the marquee will be situated then we can do the rest.  If there is no power point, then we can source a generator for you which will power your event.  You don’t need to worry about it though.  We will select the correct generator for the size of your event and organise this all for you.

How Much Will It Cost Me To Hire A Field?


Anything between £500 and £3500 and everywhere in between.  You must factor in if there is electricity and toilets available for use at the field.  If this is the case, then this will save you around £1500 for the hire of the generator and the toilets.  So sometimes it is worth paying a bit more for the facilities.


If it is simply just a field, no facilities, then expect to pay anything between £500 and £1500.  You often pay for the view, so the most stunning sites can charge a little more.  I the field has electricity, water and toilets, then this may cost you more – perhaps £2000.  This may seem steep, however once you factor in that you don’t have to pay the toilet and generator hire, then actually this isn’t badly priced.  Especially if this site has beautiful views for those very important wedding photographs.


Schools, Village Halls, and Sporting Grounds


These are sometimes a great option.  If they are very old, they can be located in the most picturesque of settings.  They often have masses of space, and they usually have toilets and utilities.  In addition to this, they often really value the rental income so can actually be much cheaper than other options.  Definitely worth looking into.
