Queensberry Event Hires Guide to Marquee Hire Prices

Katy Coltart - Monday, February 13, 2017

Hiring a marquee can be expensive and for most people an unfamiliar experience. Below, we attempt to help you answer some basic questions about marquees that we hope will help you decide if a marquee is the right option for you.

How much does it cost to hire a marquee?

How long is a piece of string? The prices on our marquee price list range from £400 to over £5000. These prices include matting, standard lighting, delivery and set up, and, for the higher of the two prices for each size, marquee lining as well. Furniture will need to be factored on top. Unfortunately, working out how much your marquee will cost isn't always totally straightforward.

  • The quickest way to get an rough idea of prices is to request a quote from us. Include plans for your event: seated area for how many? Bar and dance floor space? Night guests?
  • Another simple way is to use the fact that marquees typically cost between £15 and £50 per person. The lower price is for a basic unlined marquee with matting, simple lighting and furniture. The higher price would be for the marquee with absolutely everything - hard floor, carpet, special lighting, chill out areas etc. Most marques fall within the £20 to £30 bracket. So pick a number that seems about right for the sort of marquee you want and then multiply that by the number of guests you expect. That will give you a rough idea of the cost of a marquee.
  • For a rough guide, we also have a few sample marquee hire prices of different event types available.
  • You will then need to add furniture and accessories on top of this. We have a range of decorations available in our Hire Collection
