Party tents!

The Longparish Community Association has a number of large party tents available for use by LCA members and Affilliated Groups. The largest tent is 6 metres wide x 10 metres long, which holds about 100 people standing or 60 to 80 seated.

All the tents are from the Gala Tent range of marquees made from their top of the range PVC fabric.  Tents are supplied with ground pegs and straps, or they can also be erected with ground bars if you need to use it on a hard surface.

If the 6 mtr x 10mtr  is too large. then we also have a smaller 4m wide x 8m long tent that can be used either as a tent or as a large gazebo (roof only)

LCA will provide the tent and (if needed) an expert to help you put it up.  You will need to be able to provide transport for the tent - tents have 2 meter long steel poles and all the parts needed for the large tent weighs in at a hefty 350Kg!!  You will also need to provide a number of helpers, (at least 6 for the larger tent, 4 for the smaller one) and make a donation (£100-£150 for the larger tent / £50-£75 for the smaller one) to LCA and give the expert a suitable bottle. 

At the discretion of the committee, the tents are available free for use by affiliated village organisations for events like the fete. 

If you’d like to find out more please contact Andy on 720207 or Jeremy on 720459.

In case we mislay them, here are the instructions for the large marquee  or instructions for the smaller marquee

Plus here's a rather helpful video demonstration on how to erect the 6m x 10m marquee, and what it looks like.

Other Equipment

The following equipment is owned by the Community Association who are keen to make it available for use within our community. Local organisations affiliated to the Community Association are welcome to use the equipment free of charge (although obviously any donations to go towards the cost of equipment replacement would be gratefully received). Individual members of the Community Association are also welcome to borrow equipment for their personal/family use. A minimal charge will be made for a number of the items (marked), although again, donations gratefully accepted! We reserve the right to charge users up to £100 where equipment is damaged.

Please note: none of this equipment is available for trade or commercial purposes.
