Stretch Tents

The flexible alternative to a traditional marquee

Stretch tents are extremely versatile and can be rigged in many different ways to form distinctive free-flowing contours. A stretch tent provides the perfect setting for any event - from a simple garden party to a large festival or show. Stretch tents can be rigged in different ways to suit the individual circumstances and preferences you have for your event, producing a unique and stunning structure for maximum impact. Due to their unique design, a stretch tent flexes and flows around your exact requirements.

Their modular design enables us to build flexible configurations to cater for any size or type of event, making them a more flexible solution than a more traditional marquee.

Suitable for rental and use all year around and completely waterproof, stretch tents can be rigged to create either an open and breezy space or a fully enclosed and intimate setting, depending on the weather, season or your own requirements.

Stretch tents open up spaces for entertaining that other marquees simply cannot offer, meaning that you can have your event almost anywhere you would like it.

Stretch tents can be set up on all surfaces, whether it be a lawn or patio, against buildings, roof terraces or uneven ground. They can be built over water features, plants, or courtyards, giving you new possibilities to entertain and provide shelter in areas you had not possible before.

Not only can the size and shape of the stretch tent be modelled to your specific requirements, we can even rig them to make light airy space showcasing beautiful surroundings or views. Having the sides fully open to the surrounding scenery will in effect bring the outside inside, allowing it to be part of your event, rather than blocked out.

Enlarging or adding to Existing Venues

Hiring a stretch tent provides you with the ability to create flexible yet stunning sheltered space and are capable of fitting into areas ordinary marquees can’t. The structures blend perfectly into any landscape, they can be temporarily attached to buildings, cover courtyards and provide extended outdoor entertainment area well into the colder months.

The versatility of stretch tents means they are equally at home covering a country pub beer garden or a stylist city centre roof terrace.

  • 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.
