3 Alternative Marquee Hire Venues in Sandy, SG19

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.

(with a difference!)

Sandy is a small town that is big on community with all the character, beauty and greenery of the home counties. Its great road and rail connectivity and proximity to Cambridge means that it is an excellent location for gathering, friends, colleagues or clients for a tasteful event. This market town is nestled in the agricultural engine of Bedfordshire so there is plenty to do, see and taste with lots of fresh farm produce, ideal for seasonal catering menus. The Sand Hills and the Riddy, a locally loved meadowland add to the picurturesque landscape and the local Beeston and Chilwell Garden Trail give vistors the opportunity to take in some lovely English Country gardens.

This Bedfordshire locality stands out as also having some excellet accommodations including the stunning Warren Farm Lodge, a family run bed-and breakfast sent in expansive and well maintained grounds. Planning a Sandy-based event, leaves much of Bedfordshire and even Herts or Cambs at your doorstep but the town itself has some great finds for a marquee-based event that will be full of character.
