Love Steps – 2


Below are some of our most frequently asked questions for hiring a PVC Marquee from Blank Canvas Marquees.

If you can not find the right answer please do not hesitate to contact us online, via phone or email as we would love to hear from you.

How far in advance should I book my marquee?

The high season runs between May and September. Bookings made for this period are often made 12 months in advance. Anything outside the high season will have more availability.

Will you come and look at the proposed marquee site?

Yes, we will always conduct a site visit.  We will do this as early as possible enabling us to provide an accurate price with no hidden surprises.

Will the marquee damage the grass?

There will be no permanent damage.  The grass that is covered by the marquee may fade in colour but should recover quickly.

When will you erect and dismantle the marquee?

We will usually erect the marquee between 24 and 48 hours prior to the event.  We would dismantle it on the next working day following your event.  These times may be extended during particularly busy periods.

Are marquees suitable for winter events?

Yes, our marquees are fully waterproof and designed to be used all year round.  If the marquee is not going to be placed on a hard standing surface then you may need to opt for hard wood flooring as opposed to matting.  This will ensure the floor stays dry and any surface water can drain away.  Blank Canvas will provide a gas space heater to heat the marquee.  These are thermostatically controlled so a comfortable temperature can be maintained at all times during your event.

What type of power supply will be required for the marquee and associated items?

All electrical items will run on a standard 240V supply.  Circuit breakers and junction boxes will be provided.  If no electrical supply is available or is insufficient to meet all the supply demands (catering, lighting, entertainment etc) then you will need a generator.  This will be determined at the initial site visit.
