The quintessential British marquee

Similar in appearance but much more affordable than the very much in vogue sailcloth marquees, petal pole marquees make for an elegant party venue, creating a relaxed and sophisticated feel.

The ‘petal’ scalloped edge, with wooden poles, pegs, finials, iron stakes and hemp style ropes makes it a striking and perfect option for any traditional styled event.

They are more cost effective than a clear span marquee, as they do not need to be lined due to the sumptuous yet hardy textured PVC material.

Stylish and modern but with a nod to tradition, these classic marquees are perfect for an event with a difference.

Our petal pole marquees measure 12m x 18m, are a lovely off-white cream colour, have two impressive 6m ‘king poles’ in the centre and have lovely entrance porches to enhance the look and feel.

The sides of the marquee can be removed if the British weather allows, creating a beautiful airy and light space.

Petal Pole Marquees


Our petal pole marquees can be configured as 12m x 12m, 12m x 18m or 12m x 24m in size. They have two internal ‘king poles’ providing impressive height and are suitable for a wide range of layouts and event styles.

A large number of guests can easily be accommodated for more informal, relaxed events or where additional structures are also being used or where the British weather allows the use of uncovered outdoor space.

The following floorplans provide a sense of the space inside our petal pole 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.
