Current restrictions for weddings/parties and marquees Essex

As it stands, parties are still restricted to no more than 30 guests. Weddings can have more, but only if covid guidelines are adhered to. These include wearing a facemask whenever not seated, no dancing, no singing and no going to the bar for drinks, so table service only. Marquees are required to have the sides open, and social distancing must be maintained at all times. Take a look at current government guidelines. For anyone during this time who has wanted a small marquee hire Essex, marquee specialists County Marquees East Anglia have had to say no, as a small marquee would not allow enough room for social distancing to be safely adhered to.

But with the expected full easing of social distancing measures, if you are looking for a small marquee hire Essex then we have an amazing selection of beautiful marquees that can be set up in your garden. You can now invite friends and family, and even employ outside suppliers without worrying about numbers going over 30. Wearing masks will be optional, and the best thing is…you and your guests can really let your hair down by being able to dance, and even sing if you want! Imagine that? Being able to sing and dance at a party! The fact that we are even having to say that just shows how awful the last 17 months have been.

Traditional Canopies

There is even room to have a bar in the middle to serve your guests, in fact, for small marquee hire Essex specialists County Marquees East Anglia also hire mobile bars that are ideal for this marquee. You can view our selection of bars and additional equipment.

Clear Span Marquee

For those of you with a larger garden, our amazing Clear Span Marquee could be the perfect choice for you!
