The Mughal Marquee originates in Rajasthan and would have been used for important functions such as safaris, pilgrimages and travelling accommodation for Royalty. Traditionally made of all canvas but now offered by us with a much more sensible, but visually similar, high performance and cleanable PVC/Canvas outer and traditional white linen lining, our Mughal marquees are completely different to the usual square marquee look! They are intended for very special occasions with the build process taking considerably more time than a clearspan structure but with a stunning result.
The Mughal is suitable for:
- Summer weddings
- Summer parties
- Winter wedding and parties
- Corporate events
- Summer cover
Summer, with long days and warm evenings, is the best time to enjoy the Mughal. We like to open the walls and surround the structure with lanterns and give the structure an open, airy feel. In 2018 we expect to offer clear, panoramic walls to extend the season and offer a weatherproof environment.
Ideal for banqueting up to 160 guests on 16 tables in a single sitting or 120 wedding guests with a central dance floor. Informal party capacity up to 200. A walkway can be attached to the rear linked to catering facilities as required.

- Max banqueting guests: 160 on rounds, 180 on trestles
- 6.3m high at the pinnacle

Our Marquee FAQs
Here are some of our Frequently Asked Questions, if you have any more then don't hesitate to call on 01425 655 664 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org:
How long is the marquee normally up for?
Your marquee can be up for however long you want, depending on availability. Normally a wedding marquee is up from around Wednesday or Thursday to Monday. Charges apply for longer rentals..
When do you build and remove the marquee?
In the summer months we try to organise our staffing and marquees to suit the customer, however this can be tricky when we have three weddings in one week. If you request your build and removal dates early then we will do everything we can to fit in with your dates. We tend to build Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and remove on Monday and Tuesday. If you need the marquee to be removed or built on a weekend then let us know and we will try to accommodate this however we charge a £50 build or removal fee.
What flooring can I have?
We supply Dandy Dura polypropylene matting in either sky blue or neutral-fleck, this is professional event matting. Alternatively we supply hard, wooden suspended flooring with carpet on top. We always try to ensure the floor space is covered however with some sizes the matting may not reach the sides fully, this gap can sometimes not be prevented however we will try to correct it as much as we can. On occasion we have built marquees and downpours on waterlogged ground have created puddles in the marquee, please ensure that you speak to your landowner about their knowledge of any waterlogged areas and let us know so we can try and prevent it (especially wedding venues who use the same area for marquees as the ground can get compacted from guests and cause draining issues when it rains) We cannot be held responsible for this. We also offer new and used carpet laid on grass with an underlay.
You supply cream lining, can I have white or a different colour?
We can hire in different linings for your day. Coloured swags and linings come in many colours . Let us know if you would like a colour swatch sent.
What insurance do you have and do I need?
We have third party liability insurance as standard. However, when the marquee is in your hands its up to you to keep it, and the equipment, safe. You can obtain Event insurance to cover yourself for around £100. Let us know if you would like more information. John Lewis offer Wedding Insurance at a reasonable price.
Can I have a marquee in the winter?
All Seasons Marquees - we build year-round. With the addition of powerful heaters our winter marquees are warm and dry.
Do you have a delivery charge?
We offer free delivery within a 10 mile radius, after that it is charged at £1 per mile.
Can I rent just lining or flooring?
Yes, of course, you can hire anything from us if it is available for your date. We have lined village halls and other structures in the past. In the summer months we may be busy but will always try to get what you need.
What can I do if you don’t supply something I would like?
We regularly work with other marquee and hire companies to ensure that our customers have everything they could possibly want. Just ask - we won't bite :)
When do I pay?
We require 25% deposit and a signed booking form within 1 week of the invoice and the balance within 3 working days of the event. If the booking form is not signed within a week of invoicing then the marquees availability will not be guaranteed but we will inform you of this.
Can I change my mind about the marquee size after paying my deposit?
You can change almost anything you want, within reason, up until the week of the event. Subject to availability.
What are the rules when hiring a marquee?
Full terms and conditions that will be sent with your invoice. Please read these carefully. One of our big NO-NOs is sticky tape on the marquees (it sticks forever and ruins our walls). Also no smoking in the marquees under any circumstances. Also keep heaters and generators away from the PVC as any marks will be chargeable to the customer (unless our placing of course)
I have an uneven lawn, will the marquee fit?
We will do everything we can to offer you a stable and comfortable marquee. Really uneven surfaces may require suspended flooring at an extra cost- it looks stunning though!
What if I want to put the marquee on hard standing (not grass)?
If you require a marquee on hard standing then we will happily offer Water weights. We normally use 1m pins that hold the marquee down. The water weights hold over a tonne of water each and keep the marquee in place! This will cost you around £100.00 extra but can be less/more depending on location and size of the marquee.
What if something happens to the marquee whilst it is in my possession?
If damage is caused by you or your guests then any replacements or damage are chargeable to you, when signing the booking form you are agreeing to this in the T&Cs. We cannot build unless you agree to this. Any damaged caused by our build failures are our responsibility. We cannot be held responsible for any weather related damage to your property where we have made all efforts to create a secure and water/wind tight structure. We try and make our spaces are as weather proof as possible but extremely high winds and rain may disrupt/cause damage in rare cases.
We can recommend Bespoke Strings to play at you function. This high quality string quartet are versatile and can offer a range of musical sets from Church sessions to background.
