Festival Marquees


When it comes to festivals and outdoor shows, the Fairytale Marquee team has what it takes to help you put on a show.

Our festival marquees are ideal for event organisers looking to put on all types of shows,  from music festivals to carnivals, fairs and exhibitions. Our tents have been centre stage for big shows in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire for the past 20 years.

We can provide music tents to accommodate a large stage and standing audience, pavilion structures designed to contain multiple trade stands, and covered space for individual trade stands, concessions or refreshments.

We'll work closely with you at every step of the process so that you can be confident in our abilities and expertise before making any decisions about your marquee hire needs.



Long ago, in a land before time (2015), we were approached by the organiser of the Battle Proms Picnic Concert series to supply marquee infrastructure to 4 of their 5 concert sites. All 5 sites are hosted in the grounds of some of the grandest stately homes in England.

We have maintained and built on our relationship with client and venue, year on year, to the present day.

The marquees we supply to the Hatfield site specifically are shared across 2 festivals which are unique to each other. Battle Proms, the UK's leading picnic concert, and Folk By The Oak featuring award winning musicians and inspiring new talent from the world of folk music.

A strong showing with Fairytale’s festival tents


Find a location that guarantees the greatest catchment for your audience, select a suitable place to pitch, and we’ll get to work on creating a festival tent setup that delivers the event venue you visualised.

We’ve worked throughout the region with various show and festival organisers to supply structures that suit evolving trends and event themes, while the flexibility of marquees means you can select the event backdrop of your choosing.

Whether you’re creating a small show in a market square or large multi-tent venue in a farmer’s field, our kit provides the solution on both hard and soft ground.

What marquee types and sizes do we have?

We offer a range of traditional pole structures in 30-foot, 40-foot and 50-foot widths, extendable to any length, making them ideal for agricultural and country shows. The traditional pole marquee is our most cost-effective covering per square foot.

For smaller bespoke trade stands, or space that needs to be clear of any guy ropes and poles, we offer flexible clear-span demountable structure, with optional integral floors onto which the marquee is placed.

We stock frame marquees in widths of 3 to 20 metres, or wider upon request. They can be extended to any length in three- or five-metre multiples, on a 2.3 metre or three-metre eave. Partitions can be installed internally to create seminar rooms, walkways and break-out spaces, and the frame construction is perfect for flying audio arrays and lighting rigs.

Depending on the options you select, our marquees can feel like a permanent building built to the size you require and decorated entirely to your taste.
