Marquee Hire Cumbria

The home of our northern base, and an area we know very well. The Lake District and Eden Valley offer the most beautiful locations for weddings and events, and there are so many options – be it on the side of Ullswater, luxury venue or family farm – we know how to help ensure your event is very special.

At Original Marquees we pride ourselves in our level of service and our marquees and you won’t find a finer marquee in the UK. The marquees that we supply throughout Oxfordshire are handmade in Yorkshire by Will’s Marquees. These stunning sailcloth marquees are made using the finest natural materials with skills and knowledge passed down generation to generation.

These marquees are perfect for all outdoor events. Whether that be a wedding, a garden party on the banks of Windermere or a corporate event. They are light and airy inside making them perfect for day events but also dazzling at night with their illuminated canopy’s and Flying Festoons.

To learn more about how our marquees are made check out our marquee page here.

A Real Wedding 

In September, 2019, we supplied our 12x42m marquee for Tom & Sarah’s wedding and 180 guests. Pitched on a field at their family farm, facing the house, created the perfect venue. “We used Original Marquees for our wedding in the Lake District. I can’t rate the team highly enough. Doug and Alex were a great help with the preparations and quick to respond to any queries. Everything went smoothly during set and taking down of the marquee. The finish article was stunning! Thanks again!” TC, Groom, 2019
