Large marquee hire: what size is best?

Turns out your company function includes partners, or maybe the advertising for your gala or festival was more effective than you expected. Or perhaps you are planning a destination wedding and no matter how many times you’ve revised it, the guest count is creeping way up.

It’s good to know that everyone wants to come to your party or reception, but how are you going to accommodate them all at your chosen venue? Whether it’s in Sydney or anywhere along nearby beaches or natural environments, outdoor events are popular and you can still offer sit-down meals, speeches and presentations in style.

Large marquee hire

You’ll want to hire a marquee spacious enough to provide a relaxed and sheltered environment for your guests to mingle, dance and eat, or enjoy presentations or entertainment without feeling crowded or squashed. So how do you determine what size marquee to hire or how many guests you can invite?

Here’s a guideline based on marquee size and guest count:

6m x 6m: 40 seated guests or 60 theatre seats

6m x 9m: 60 seated guests or 90 theatre seats

6m x 12m: 80 seated guests or 120 theatre seats

6m x 15m: 100 seated guests or 150 theatre seats

6m x 18m: 120 seated guests or 180 theatre seats

6m x 21m: 140 seated guests or 210 theatre seats

6m x 24m: 160 seated guests or 240 theatre seats

6m x 27m: 180 seated guests or 270 theatre seats

6m x 30m: 200 seated guests or 300 threatre seats

With clear or white walls, a large marquee can blend seamlessly into any environment, giving you freedom of choice when it comes to your setting. You can hire a stand-alone marquee, with or without added extras such as timbre floors, microphones and jukeboxes.

Or you can choose a suitable Discount Party Hire package and enjoy all the benefits of added extras, packaged together according to your guest count, such as chandeliers, tables and chairs, linen table cloths, helium balloon kits and beer bins.
