We’ve put together some of the questions clients ask us most. Hopefully these will cover everything you need to know, but if not, please just get in touch, we’re happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
Planning & Setting Up
We will have your marquee set-up completed, giving you at least a full day to dress the marquee before the event date. For example, for a Saturday wedding, the marquee set-up will be complete no later than the Thursday afternoon/evening, giving you the Friday to dress/decorate the marquee. We will be in touch, the week beginning of your event date, to confirm timings.
We are situated in the stunning North Norfolk area, offering our services throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire. If your event is a bit further out than this, that’s ok, get in touch and we will see what we can do.
Normally, we tend to invite potential clients along to view one of our marquees after set-up, with client’s permission. Unfortunately, with the Covid-19 situation, we are currently unable to offer this. We will do our best to explain and show you how your marquee will look, with photographs and site plans.
We’re happy to come along to the event venue, to ensure that we can accommodate your request. We will do a site survey to check there is enough space, access, and no under or over ground elements to take into consideration.
The size of the marquee needed, is completely dependent on your requirements and guest numbers. We will easily work this out for you, once you tell us how many people will be attending.
Our marquee styles vary when it comes to maximum capacity. We are always honest with client’s, we won’t encourage you to select a style that won’t accommodate your guest numbers.
Yes, with over 15 years’ experience, we have extensive knowledge on all thing’s marquees and event furniture. From the best style and set-up to suit your needs, to ‘facilities’ requirements, such as power, water, catering, and washroom requirements. We can work with you every step of the way, ensuring your event is just as you want it.
Yes, we can accommodate a request for a marquee to be set up on non-grassed areas. We use weighted blocks around the perimeter to weigh down the guy ropes, instead of inserting them into the ground.
Yes, we’ve worked with the vast majority of venues in the region, so we’ll know what’s expected of us. To us, the client comes first, we will always make sure we stick to the venue rules, without it impacting your event.
We can accommodate all your requirements, regarding the marquee element of your event. From the power, lighting, catering facilities, stage, dancefloor and bar, furniture, luxury toilets and marquee attendants.
Our luxury toilet units come in two sizes. The 2+1 unit, which is fully self-contained, only needing power for its 13amp plug, will accommodate up to 180 guests for an eight-hour duration. The 3+1 unit is again fully self-contained, with just the 13amp plug needing power, accommodating up to 250 guests over an eight-hour duration. If use is needed for longer, we are happy to arrange an empty and clean service, for an additional cost.
If your event is in the middle of a field, or you have got a lot of power requirements, we would recommend hiring a generator. Our generators will accommodate all power requirements, with minimal noise. We will work with you and your other suppliers, to determine how much power you need and how best to lay the cables to accommodate. If you are at a venue, just check and never assume that they can offer you power. There are several venues that will still require you to hire a generator.
We offer a marquee attendant, who can oversee and deal with all elements that you have hired through Morton Events. This means you can have hands on maintenance and care for the marquee, generator, and luxury toilets. if you get too hot and want some of the marquee walls removed, or you need a last-minute plug socket for the band, our marquee attendant will have you covered.
