Marquees don’t tend the scream, “use me in winter”, but when you’ve got one that’s fully kitted out, it can offer you just the place for some festive shenanigans.
When the mercury drops, a marquee can be fully heated offering a cosy and inviting space that allows you to get creative when it comes to décor. Starting with what is essentially a blank canvas, the only limit is your imagination when it comes to the interior.
Winter Marquee Features
Covered walkways, sumptuous soft furnishings and atmospheric lighting can make for a stunningly beautiful Christmas setting for your corporate function. A good marquee heating system will be a welcome addition but certainly won’t take up centre stage. The vents to deliver the all-important warmth are placed discreetly throughout the venue, with the temperature easily adjusted and controlled using a thermostat. The serious kit is kept outside of the marquee, so it won’t encroach on your perfectly planned interior.
By lining the marquee, we can add in another layer of cold banishing tactics, that helps to further insulate the marquee that’ll keep your guests warm and cosy. Marquees are built to withstand the elements so nothing will stop your guests from hitting that dance floor.
It’s not just the cold you might want to keep out, whether it’s rain, sleet or snow, your marquee can protect you from the elements with covered walkways and both indoor and outdoor flooring can help to combat whatever the weather throws at you. If all else fails, wellies and umbrellas can make a quirky addition to your theme.
You don’t need to worry about the changes in lighting or guests wanting to congregate outside the marquee as you might find with a summer event, with the winter sun setting early, your event can be perfectly lit and bustling from the start. Be sure to get into the Christmas spirit in your warm winter wonderland; even if it looks like the north pole outside, your party goers will be able to enjoy a Christmas event to remember.
