Marquee Size Guide
If you are thinking of buying a marquee, you may find the table below helpful in choosing the appropriate size of marquee.
These are suggestions only and are based on 30+ years practical experience of hiring and manufacturing marquees.
As an approximate guide, each 3m x 3m (10' x 10') area of the marquee will accommodate a 5' round table seating 8-10 guests (8 is more comfortable, but 10 is acceptable if space on site for the marquee is limited).
Remember to allow some extra space for dance floors, disco, buffet, bar, reception area etc. The numbers below should be taken as the maximum possible - actual marquee capacity will vary according to accessories used, the layout chosen, entrances and exits etc.
