Buying Guide

Why choose a Gala Tent Marquee

After over a decade of manufacturing marquees and meeting customer demands with specific product functionality, it is reasonable to say that a Gala Tent is among the best quality, value-for-money marquee available.We specialise in marquees and associated accessories, where as some suppliers only treat this as a supplimental product range. We are able to advise our customers based on a wealth of experience to find the right products.
We not only design and build our marquees, we also assemble components and modules to make a full structure at our headquarters in Britain.
The zips, material, framework and joints are engineered to a very high standard, while the steel framework is up to 1.2mm thickness. Compared to competitors who use 0.8mm steel to cut costs, our frameworks have superior stability, especially for our range of 6m marquees.

Gala Tents are also fireproof rated to British Standard requirements, BS 5438 + BS 7837 awarded after rigorous tests by Intertek. Without the fire certificate, an inferior marquee would be unable to be used at public events.

Gala Tent also supply a wide range of spare parts and accessories. You also have the option of purchasing specially manufactured optional equipment e.g. ground bars, ratchet tie down kits to add extra stability and strength as well as benefiting from the add on bay option to make your structure larger. Specially designed heating, lighting, lining and flooring is also available from the Gala Tent range.

Remember, It is not an Event without Gala Tent!

"We The Village Show at keysoe, have over the last 15 years purchased 6 of these tents and have been delighted with them all. They receive a lot of 'upping ' and 'downing' as we fund the show by hiring them out and as long as we pack them carefully and look after them they last for a good few seasons"

"Positive: Good quality product at a good price. Negative: VAT invoicing could be made easier allowing purchaser to obtain invoice when ordering rather than having to phone up and arrange. (Although lady I talked to was very nice and sorted out straight away)"

"Original bought this marquee in 2012 for a golden wedding celebration as it was more economical than hiring one. Having got a marquee, found that there are lots of times to use it for parties or lending to friends. Although it is really spacious it is easy enough to put up with two people in less than an hour. With the sides down it is really cosy, brilliant on a wet July day, without the sides makes a wonderful sunshade."

"Purchased 8x4m Gala tent to replace a standard garden gazebo. Paying that extra bit was well worth it. The frame structure and fabrics used are far sturdier and able to stand up to wind and rain. It creates a pleasant space for garden parties and we've used it in the pouring rain without any problems. Purchased from Gala as have noticed these used in local events also most of the parts are replaceable and can alter your existing purchase with add ons and accessories. I purchased lighting :-) "

"Been fantastic purchase, the roof is particularly difficult to fit as it needs to be pulled so tight to get elastic fittings to fit round poles!"
