WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Our Traditional Tipi is a showstopper at any event, small or large. It can be used for adding space such as a chill-out area for guests at large weddings or makes a fabulous focal point at smaller more intimate parties. We don't supply large Event Tipis, but we do have gorgeous traditional canvas tipis. If you are looking for a larger option why not try our Yurts, Pole Marquees or Stretch Tents

Let's take a look at how it could work at your celebration...

Tipi Size.

Our Tipi is 18ft diametre or 5.5m 

This Tipi really is is a focal point for any event, the ultimate party tent. It draws your eye and your guests will be talking about it for years to come. If you are having a small gathering in your garden this is good for around 10-15 people when used as a relaxed mingling space. Again it is good as an extra space for larger parties, perhaps a chill out area or somewhere for children to play.

 

The Tipi is a beautiful tent which can work as an enclosed structure or can be opened up by rolling the canvas at the front giving a perfect flow for guests to walk in and out. 

Ask us if you have a particular request regarding Tipis because as we have love chatting through your ideas and if you have a tricky site and aren't sure what will work, it is alway worth asking.

It is always a good idea to consider a Tipi for your event, even as an addition to one of our other structures, such as our Yurts or Pole Marquees. If your large celebration needs a feature which will turn heads, our traditional Tipi will do just that. Our Tent Hire page is a great place to find all the large structures we can provide for the main event. You can also find our range of extras that we supply such as garden games, dance floor and bars on a dedicated page.

What is included in tipi Hire?

Site visit - We are more than willing to conduct a site visit if necessary but this isn't usually necessary with smaller structures like our Tipi. If you are holding your wedding or party at a venue where we have a regular presence, even better as we will be full aware of access and the site itself. Nevertheless, we are always happy to meet with you meeting or discuss in detail over the phone any thoughts or concerns you may have.

We have an experienced team and will handle all aspects of setup, dismantling, and installation of any of our equipment, making sure it is hassle-free for you.

Our Tipi comes equipped with flooring. It is often a good idea to add a selection of rugs to give the Tipi a comfortable relaxed feel.

How long is the Tipi hire?

Our standard rental duration typically spans 2 days, allowing ample time for setup, enjoyment of your event and dismantling. While our general schedule involves setting up the day before your event, the exact timing can vary based on our booking commitments and if you have constraints to work around yourselves. Flexibility is key, we strive to work with you to make the most of your hire time and get everything ready on schedule. 

If you require the Tipi for longer periods just get in touch, we are happy to be flexible. We have also worked with clients where long term hire has been required, do let us know if this is something you are interested in.

To help us make your experience seamless, it's crucial to let us know about access to the pitching site. Tipis have very long poles and therefore need straight pathways to the pitching site. The earlier we gather this information, the easier it will be to confirm your booking with us.

Do you hire Furnishings and Lighting?

Furniture:

We can furnish our Tipis for either chill out spaces with rugs, cushions and low chairs and tables or they can also be kitted out for sleepovers. If you have specific ideas of how you would like to use the Tipi just let us know and we can help advise you and discuss your options.

Lighting:

Fairy lighting works well in the Tipi, draped around the perimeter creating a magical feel. For smaller garden events we can advise you on lighting options to suit you best, as you may have bespoke requirements. Don't worry, that doesn't mean it's going to cost more, it just means that a "standard package" may not be suitable for you. Most of our standard packages are designed for large weddings and events which may not be appropriate for your needs.

Additionally, we can also supply outdoor lighting as an extra feature. This can really help bring a party to life in the evening, linking areas and lighting the way to for your guests.

With all our hire options furniture and lighting are not mandatory, if you have specific ideas or have another supplier you would like to use, feel free. What is important to us is that you create the event you want. 

 

Tipis can be used in a number of exciting ways from themed whiskey bars, to DJ booths, to tattoo parlours...

If you were looking for larger structures and our Tipis aren't what you were looking why not take a look at our Yurts or Pole Marquees. All of our structures have been chosen for their ascetic, practical and sustainable features which all offer a fabulous alternative to Marquees and tents that have been used for many years.
