Create the party of the year for your team

The night’s are drawing in and the temperature is dropping: winter is officially here. Even at the beginning of November, chances are your favourite restaurants and venues are getting booked up for Christmas parties. Not only does this put you under pressure to find somewhere quick, but it also means you may not have the freedom you want to create the winter wonderland you envisage.

A great way to combat this is to hire a marquee for your Christmas Function. While many may think that marquees require a lot of early planning and are defenceless to Jack Frost, that is simply not the case. Interest in marquee hire over the festive period is quickly growing, so now is the perfect time to get in on the trend.

Jack Frost Is Not Invited
Despite what you may think, heating up your marquee can be really easy. With generators and heaters, you never have to worry about the colder weather interfering with your party. Great little add-ons such as fire pits and blankets are also fun ways to keep the heat alive! They offer a jovial ambience and are guaranteed to be a natural focal point for your guests.

Take Your Guests To A Winter Wonderland
Office Christmas parties: we’ve all been there. Tinsel over the notice boards, the same Christmas compilation album on repeat and people feeling awkward about getting merry in their place of work. Hiring a marquee allows you to take your employees out of their 9-5 life, even if just for a few hours. Our star cloth lining brings the ceiling to life, transporting you into a starry Christmas Cloud 9 (minus actual clouds!) – perfect for any festive theme. With a marquee, you have a complete blank canvas which can be tailored to your specific need, perfect for putting your stamp on it.

Give Your Guests The Gift OF Space
Say goodbye to awkwardly cramming between a photocopier and desk with a plastic cup of mulled wine. Marquees are spacious and with our Hex marquees you can easily adapt how large they need to be. This is ideal for Christmas parties as it means you needn’t worry about +1’s or dodgy dad dancing because there will always been enough room.

They Make The Perfect Portable Venue
While it is tempting to host a party somewhere low cost (a.k.a the office), marquees let you take the party anywhere. Not only does this mean you can host your party in beautiful surroundings, but it also offers the chance to bring these surroundings inside with our clear panels.  Imagine a brilliant white tent full of laughter, with people watching as snow falls around it – certainly something to remember.

No Need To Mull Over The Wine!
Too many Christmas parties fall foul to a punch bowl on a buffet table and some beers left outside to cool. Marquees offer complete versatility when it comes to catering. If beers in an ice bucket fits the bill then great – you’ve got easy access to the outdoors! If you’d rather have the feeling of a brick and mortar venue, our friends over at Best@Bars can provide you with a fully stocked and staffed bar.

These are just a few reasons as to why a marquee would make your ideal Christmas party venue. Here at Morton’s Event Hire, we’re more than happy to help in creating your party; THE party of the season. For more information, request a quote now or call us on (01692) 538928.


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
