WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?

If the weather forecast predicts a gloriously sunny day, you could have any number of sides up to make the most of the sun, and the view, whilst providing you with shade. If the forecast is not so favourable, we will bring down the sides of the tent and we can provide you with heaters to keep you and your guests nice and warm.

 

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF A STRETCH TENT OVER A MARQUEE?

The versatile nature and beauty of these structures always creates buzz and excitement, leaving a lasting impression on your guests. Marquees require a flat symmetrical space unlike stretch tents which are adaptive and perfect for complicated terrain. They can be wrapped around/over trees or rocks, cover swimming pools, serve as an extension to your property and even be erected over an area that has a slope.

 

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A SITE VIEWING? 

There is no charge for a site viewing anywhere within a one hour drive of Chalfont St Peter, Bucks. Further than this there may be a charge which is dependent on the mileage, but this charge can then be deducted from the final booking.

 

WHEN DO I NEED TO PAY FOR MY BOOKING?

When you choose to go ahead, 50% deposit is due and the balance is due 2 weeks before set up (or before delivery for purchases).

 

DO I NEED TO ADVISE YOU WHERE ALL THE UNDERGROUND AND OVERGROUND SERVICES ARE SITUATED? 

Yes. Before delivery/installation, the client must provide TENT PEG EVENTS LTD with written confirmation that there are no underground services on the site where the tent is to be erected, or with an accurate plan showing the location of any underground services. If the client does not own the site, then it is their responsibility to obtain this written confirmation from the site owner. If there is any doubt as to where services are, then TENT PEG EVENTS LTD will need to undertake a CAT scan in order to minimise the risk of Injury from underground services. As CAT scans are not guaranteed to locate all services, TENT PEG EVENTS LTD shall not be liable for any damage caused to any undetected Underground Services.

 

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY? 

Should the client wish to terminate the contract then the following compensation rates will be charged to the client by TENT PEG EVENTS LTD:

100% of the hire price for notice less than 7 days prior to the hire period

50% of the hire price for notice between 7 and 28 days prior to the hire period

20% of the hire price for notice more than 28 days prior to the hire period

 

HOW LONG IS A STANDARD RENTAL? 

For the usual Saturday booking, we aim to set up the tent on the Thursday or Friday prior and set down the tent on the following Monday (though this may vary). If a longer period is required, further charges may apply.

 

I WOULD LIKE A SPECIFIC SIZE AND COLOUR TENT?

DO THE TENTS CONFORM TO UK FIRE REGULATIONS?

ARE TENT PEG EVENTS INSURED?

FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY

WILL I NEED A LICENCE FOR MY EVENT?

If your tent is situated on unlicensed property and you plan to sell alcohol to your guests, then you will need a "Personal Licence". You may also need a "Temporary Event Notice" to cover playing live/recorded music - more information here from Chiltern District Council.  Supplying free drinks to your guests does not require a licence. 

 

CAN I LEGALLY GET MARRIED OUTDOORS?
