Recommendation is always the safest way to choose a service, so take a look at what our customers have to say!

At Kent College Junior School, we always use Canterbury Marquees for our functions, a cheerful service, good value for money, where nothing is too much trouble. They put the 'ease' in marquees!

Canterbury Marquees did a fantastic job for us for our Charity Clay Day in aid of Demelza House Children's Hospice and the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust.  Very professional and thoughtful, they went the extra mile for us at every stage.  

 

Lizzie Herring, Eastern Regional Organiser, G&WCT,

Our black tie event was simply superb, the marquee was kitted out like a London Hotel ballroom, the friendly service and the “nothing is too much trouble” attitude of Canterbury Marquees was so refreshing. We won't hesitate in recommending them, they were great.

Yours truly, Ben & Larry 

We booked Canterbury Marquees for our wedding in September 2015 to go in the grounds of our local village hall as we wanted something a bit different and special. We went with Canterbury Marquees as they were the best price for what we wanted but would recommend them on the service more than the pricing now! The marquee was put up a couple of days before, all in good time for our big day. It looked great once all up with drapes and chandeliers and even better once we'd decorated, it couldn't have been more perfect. 

Thank you so much!  

Kirsty and Darren

I just wanted to send thanks on behalf of the whole team here at People United for our Best Fest on Sunday. The event went really well and it’s just so great that we knew we wouldn't have to worry about the marquee on the day. You were so helpful in the run up - with the extra furniture we needed and facilitating our lack of knowledge for the stage!

 

Thank you for being so efficient and timely on the day of the event - it really does make a difference to our stress levels!

 

Best wishes

When you are organising large scale events, you need companies you can rely on.  

 

Canterbury Marquees understood our needs, were on time, got on with the job, provided excellent marqueesand were a pleasure to deal with. 

They even came out to put my mind at ease when one show was hit with extreme weather and incredibly high winds, nothing was too much trouble.

 

 I had been given their details on recommendation and I was not disappointed. I would use them for any event in the future and highly recommend their services.

Kate, Sandwich Showground

Just a note to say thank you so much for all your help with the marquee etc. for our son's wedding.

 

We had a lovely day and really appreciated the service that you provided and the efficient manner in which your staff erected and took down the marquee. We were really impressed with the way that they worked so hard in such extreme conditions!

 

Thank you once again.

 

Liz and Peter Giles

We hired a marquee from Canterbury Marquees for our summer wedding 2015. We found Canterbury Marquees really good value, they were happy to answer the numerous questions I emailed through in the lead up to our wedding and happily dealt with all the requests we had – even some last minute changes.

 

Organising any event can be stressful but the admin team made the marquee one less stress for us to deal with. We would definitely recommend this company and use again ourselves.

 

Emily Leftley

Just to thank you to you & your team for the Herculean efforts to get the marquee erected.  Both Saturday & Sunday were magnificent autumnal days & the match day was an outstanding success including an appearance in the 20/20 match by Geraint Jones, fresh from his triumph at Lords the previous day.

Attending a trade show with British weather the way it is can be high risk, we took no chances and got Canterbury Marquees to put up one of their tents, a resounding success. Thanks for everything.

Yours, Sridhar Srinivasan

We had a really positive experience using Canterbury Marquees. They were always quick getting back to us and took the time to come out to the venue and also to meet up with us to check exactly what we wanted. They were great on the days leading up to and after the wedding setting up the marquee and were very patient with us milling around them! They were a really reasonable price and we'd have no problems recommending them to anyone. 

Sophie & Adam Stoneham

Our daughter's wedding reception went off without a hitch, the marquee went up and came down as promised within 72 hours. The luxury of the interior was breath taking, it looked like wonderland.

Mr. & Mrs. Windsor 

One of the biggest thank you's of the weekend has to go to Canterbury Marquees, they were only contracted to put up the marquees but ended up being the first on site last Monday and the last to leave after pretty much building the whole festival and digging us out of a massive hole. I couldn't recommend these guys enough - best in the business!"

Max Weston 

Southbeats Festival

 

Everything was just fab. Easy to deal with, friendly and very personable service. I'll be back!  Thank so much for all your time, effort and patience!

When our son and daughter-in-law telephoned from Australia to say they were returning to the UK to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, and that they would like the party to be at my home, we were initially filled with dread.

Numbers around 40 to 50 were being bandied about, and we had no idea where we would put them all. Then came Canterbury Marquees to the rescue, and problem solved! The marquee nearly filled our small garden, but under the watchful eye of owner, Christian, it proved to be wonderful.

 

The team were helpful in selecting what was best for our needs; very punctual in all they promised; efficient on the day; and it looked a treat. We found it fitted the bill in every aspect, and cannot speak too highly of the quality of service we received... and all done at a very competitive price!

 

Thank you Canterbury Marquees. We thoroughly recommend you.

Kathy and David Surridge

An 18th birthday party has its concerns but we made the right decision, a marquee in the garden, so simple and so effective. For our daughter's 21st we will definitely ask Canterbury Marquees to come back.

Thanks a lot, Terry & Fran Lester

Canterbury Marquees provided the marquee for our "Changing Coast at Margate" event, the staff were particularly helpful both on the day itself and during the months of preparation which led up to the event. Assistance included a useful site visit with myself, the provision of a proposed lay out (map), meeting with Thanet District Council on the site and preparation of a risk assessment.
In addition to this Canterbury Marquees were able to come up with an innovative solution to a problem at the site; no drill holes were available or could be made on The Piazza to secure the marquee; the company's proposal of custom built water weights, each of which could be filled with 250 litres of water, provided the ideal solution for weighing down the marquee.


All of this preparation and problem solving was carried out in a cheerful and professional way.


On the big day, stallholders fed back comments to me about how helpful the marquee staff had been; assisting with additional things such as banners and last minute changes due to the wind. I would personally recommend Canterbury Marquees to others.
