Simple Elegance

Chinese hats or pagoda marquees, as they are more commonly known, are elegant structures ideal for use when either space is limited or only a smaller event area is required.

Multiple pagodas can be linked together using a watertight guttering system to create a very generous entertainment space, if required.

These attractive structures can be used as a roof only marquee to provide shade and sun protection, or sides can be added to provide complete weather protection. Our pagoda marquees have sides with windows to allow light in, walls to provide a cosy space or block out any unwanted views, and doors for access in and out.

As their design mirrors the roofline of a stretch tent or petal pole marquee, it makes them ideal for use as an additional space – be it for a chill out area, bar area, catering area or live music space.


Each pagoda measures 6m x 6m, but when linked with another pagoda, the 6m x 12m entertaining space can comfortably accommodate 80 seated guests, or more for a less formal occasion.

The following floorplans provide a sense of the space inside our pagoda marquees.

  • The boys were fantastic in working with us to set up the tents exactly as we wanted; the layout worked really well, we kept the sides open to show off our garden and adjusted the poles so that there was a great dance floor and chill out area.

  • I have been really happy with Bowland Marquees. The party looked great and it was all thanks to the layout and lighting. The birthday girl was over the moon and all of the guests loved it.

    - Amanda

  • Couldn't recommend these guys enough. Nick was very professional throughout the whole project. We were unsure of how the tents would work, Nick helped by showing us some recent projects. Everyone loved the results and we all had a great night. Thank you.

    - Dan & Michelle

  • Everyone had a great time at our function, and I had many positive comments about the tent, especially when it started to rain! It saved the day.

    - Jane

  • The team are fantastic to deal with, they are professional and polite, and it was no problem for them to upgrade the size of the stretch tent at the last minute.

    - Rachel & Matt

  • The tent was an absolute hit and everyone was asking where we'd got it - we actually had someone come by on the Sunday who is getting married in August and I recommended you guys to her without hesitation.
