3 Alternative Marquee Hire Venues in Kempston, MK42

An outdoor event venue for accommodating a marquee installation should carry the following features for the best results in our opinion.

Space - marquee tents require the outdoor room to be installed. Either hard or soft ground and ideally flat.

Parking - with guests arriving at various times and often in small vehicles, there must be ample parking space planned.

Non-residential - ideally being in isolation from residences would be a good quality, as many councils will clamp down on noise pollution at late hours.
