Devon Party Marquees was born with the idea that a marquee should be stylish to look at and affordable to hire. With this in mind we found an alternative and funky style of marquee called the Capri. Requiring far less manpower to install and break down, the Capri marquee quickly became an affordable hire solution.

The Capri offered an elegant alternative to the more traditional or clear span style of marquee. The structure displayed curved arches with walls and high peaked roofs, something that was not commonplace in the marquee landscape. Its tension design eliminated the need for guy lines and created a clean and sleek appearance – evocative of Erasmus Bridge or the Sydney Opera House.

As well as its distinctive appearance the marquee's modular design allowed for more than one to be joined together. Hire one for a garden party or create a combination for a wedding reception the choice is endless.

Since our formation we have expanded and now offer three styles of marquee:

  • The Trapeze has replaced our original marquee the Capri. They look very similar but with improved connecting joiners and walls the Trapeze offers far greater protection against the rain and wind. The Trapeze can withstand wind gusts of up to 50mph, something that the Capri struggled with. We are the only supplier in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset of the Trapeze marquee. We have both sizes available, they are 30x40ft and 20x30ft. Each marquee comes with an equal set of solid white and window walls.
  • The Poleadion is our flagship marquee. Measuring 60x60ft or 60x80ft, the marquee will comfortably hold between 150-250 seated, plus space for a dance floor and bar. Its superior quality in both design and strength will shield your event from nearly all but the worst of the British weather.
  • The Matrix is our only clear span marquee. Available in two sizes, the Matrix combines traditional tent design with modern innovation, creating an architecturally impressive, yet fully functional, structure system. Because of it’s versatility, the Matrix is an ideal choice for a wide range of event applications. From entrance porches, to catering tents, market stalls or eye-catching hospitality, this type of marquee will impress whatever the event.

As well as our standard Dandy Dura matting we now offer a hard plastic interlocking floor with or without carpet, this is compatible with our Poleadion and Matrix range.

Devon Party Marquees not only covers Devon, we now operate throughout the West Country, which includes marquee hire in Cornwall and Somerset. Our marquees are used for a variety of events including weddings, parties, festivals, county shows and corporate days.
