So it’s probably safe to say that the ship has long-since sailed with regards to organising an outdoor Christmas party for 2015. But at the same time, it’s no secret that Christmas 2016 will be knocking on our doors in the blink of an eye, which makes now the perfect time to start thinking about next year’s festivities.
Over recent years, marquee hire in Bromley for Christmas events has become increasingly popular like never before. From corporate Christmas parties to private gatherings and all manner of wonderful winter weddings, marquee hire is far from the exclusive and inaccessible luxury it may once have been. Slowly but surely, the British public in general is beginning to understand and explore the enormous benefits of marquee events, which contrary to popular belief are not reserved only for the warmer months of the year.
So for those who prefer to plan ahead and are already thinking about their Christmas 2016 events, here’s a quick rundown of just a few of the reasons why Christmas marquee hire makes so much sense:
1 – Anywhere, Anytime
First of all, actually finding an indoor venue for a Christmas party that isn’t already booked up way in advance can be difficult to say the least. As such, it’s often a case of compromising to a certain extent and simply making the best of whatever it is available. With marquee hire on the other hand it is actually quite to the contrary, as the entire country opens up as a potential playground for your event. There’s practically nowhere that’s out of bounds when it comes to organising and running a marquee event. So even if you’re planning an event for a seriously peak time, chances are you’ll be spoilt for choice.
2 – Your Party, Your Rules
Something else that’s fantastic about marquee events in general is the way in which you are not bound by the ‘rules of the house’, so to speak. When you organise an event in a conference room, a hotel, a restaurant, a bar or really any other standard venue, you basically have to go along with their requirements when it comes to things like start times, finish times, facilities, amenities, entertainment and so on. By contrast, when you organise a marquee event in an outdoor location, you pretty much get to write the rule book yourself. You get a say in everything that takes place from top to bottom, which is the kind of freedom you simply do not get when booking a standard event venue.
3 – The Best of the Outdoors, Indoors
A quick argument but an important one nonetheless, there’s absolutely no denying the way in which there is something uniquely enjoyable about these kinds of outdoor events that cannot be replicated indoors. Technically speaking, you are of course indoors and are protected from the elements by the highest quality marquee hardware. Nevertheless, there’s a certain dynamic to outdoor Christmas parties the likes of which is beyond compare.
4 – Comprehensive Catering Options
Still on the subject of freedom of choice, it is important to remember that when booking with a standard indoor venue or event hall, you will usually find yourself somewhat restricted with regard to catering options. If for example you were to book in a hotel or restaurant, chances are they wouldn’t exactly be open to the idea of you arranging outside catering. It’s the exact opposite story however when it comes to marquee hire, as with these kinds of outdoor events you have 100% freedom of choice when it comes to everything from catering to entertainment to service staff and so on.
5 – Total Customisation
For those with a flair for creativity, marquee hire can be truly fantastic. The reason being that it provides you with something of a blank canvas upon which to create your own Christmas event masterpiece. Everything from the lighting to the general ambiance to the music to the décor and so on, there’s just so much more you can do with your own private event marquee than would be possible with any standard indoor hall or venue.
6 – Genuine Value for Money
Last but not least, it’s commonly assumed that marquee event hire is considerably more expensive than standard event hall hire – the reality can be quite to the contrary. There is such competition among providers these days that even the most exquisite marquees available are often up for grabs for prices that don’t even come close to those of high-end event halls and indoor venues. And when considering the additional rewards of choosing marquee hire, value for money really is on entirely higher level.
