Birthday BBQ in the Summer Heat

It was a hot day last weekend, dare we say it….. too hot!

With a birthday barbeque planned with some people coming who don’t like the heat, Grandma and a pregnant lady, what can you do?   Create some shade!  And that’s what this family in Ashby did with one of our marquees.

Sheltering from the sunshine


We erected this 6m Hexagonal marquee in the morning and by mid afternoon the air beneath is was still comfortable enough to enjoy a tasty feast without the guests melting.

We provided tables and chairs for everyone to dine at too!

What a perfect solution for everyone to enjoy our rare sizzling summer sunshine!


Engagement Celebration in Parents Garden

Love is in the air this weekend at Rolleston on Dove, near Burton-on-Trent as a happy couple celebrate their engagement with family and friends by holding a party in their parents garden with three of our marquees joined together to make one spacious area to house tables and chairs to seat all their guests.

With a 6m hexagonal pink marquee flanked either side at angles by a 3m x 4.5m white marquee there is plenty of space to house seven 8m long tables and  56 chairs.  With a heater in each marquee to keep them warm should it turn a little chilly this setup is sure to be an inviting location for such a happy occasion.  Our congratulations go to the happy couple :0)

Testimony from St Mary’s School PTA

“Burton Mini Marquees helped to make our largest fundraising event of the school year a great success. The team came out on time, worked hard, were polite and helpful and gave us all the information we needed to use the marquees to best effect once erected. The marquees were really great quality which meant we could place paying stall holders into the marquees knowing they were in a great environment.

We had some April showers too but the marquees were dry inside and provided a good bolthole for those nearby getting drenched. Dismantling was fast with the team turning up at the time agreed and operating safely in a busy environment. Massive thanks from St Mary’s School PTA go to Mini Marquees” Seleena, St Mary’s PTA Chair

Recent Feedback from our St Mary’s School Fair

Recent feedback we have had through email for the St Mary’s School Spring Fair hire job we did the past weekend. We always like receiving emails like this.

Dear Spring Fair supporter,

We just wanted to say a really big thank you for helping make our Spring Fair such a great day for the school and local community.  The feedback from the children, families and staff has been fantastic and we couldn’t have done it without your support.

People have said there was a real carnival atmosphere with all the fun fair rides, that there was definitely something for the older children with the climbing wall and car racing, the ponies were great, that the independent stalls were brilliant and the classic cars, diggers and pets’ corner were really well received by families.  If you have any feedback, we’d be pleased to hear from you via this email.

So thank you so much for all your help and making the day a fantastic event.  We have made around £2500 for the school which is a great result, but more importantly we created an amazing day that the children will remember for a long time and that created a fabulous atmosphere – even with the heavy showers.

If you came along, we hope you enjoyed the day with us and maybe see you again next year!

Best wishes
Helen Simpson and Seleena Creedon
PTA Committee members
