TIMBER-FRAMED TENTS AND MARQUEES
Welcome to Roundhouse, home of the timber-framed tent. We design and make extraordinary tents, perfect for your extraordinary event.
Marquees are great. Everyone loves a big tent, the smell of the coir matting, the space, the novelty of it all. But what’s with all the PVC? Do marquees really have to be so big and square and …uninspiring?? Well, here at Roundhouse we are all about putting the Wow! back into tents and marquees.
The true beauty of our tents and marquees lies in their flexibility. Quick to erect, they are also fully demountable which means they are the perfect solution for anyone who needs a temporary covered space. What really sets them apart from the alternatives is the flexibility and durability of our designs.
They can happily be left out in all weathers, made to fit awkwardly shaped spaces, built around immovable obstacles like trees for instance. We design and make each and every one from scratch so that we can ensure your tent does and says everything it needs to about you, your event or your business.
Our passion is making all of this a reality and working with you to design and create the venue you’ve been dreaming of. Our goal is always to put a smile on your face and give you something that you and your guests will be talking about for a long while to come.
Our aim is always to give you something that you can’t get anywhere else, that is designed specifically for you and that will give you many years of service, and an unrivalled return on investment. Add to that our emphasis on sustainability, attention to detail and sheer practicality and I’ll think you’ll find our tents quite hard to beat.
Whether you’re planning an extension of your existing venue or a one-off event, let us provide the WOW factor with one of our bespoke timber-framed tents.
Perfect for wedding venues, hotels, restaurants and pubs, festivals, visitor centres, retreats….. wherever you need a bit of extra covered space.
We use traditional materials and methods to craft our structures, paying attention to even the smallest detail so when your guests walk in for the first time it really is truly memorable. And because they’re designed and built specifically with you and your business in mind, they feel like a part of your venue or property, not just a temporary add-on.
Our beautiful tents are handcrafted in our Wiltshire workshop using British grown Cedar, stainless steel and proper canvas. We are passionate about creating the most beautiful tents available but that’s not done without consideration of our impact on the planet. All of the materials we use are sourced from within a 25 mile radius of our workshop. We buy British timber in bulk and season it ourselves which means we can reduce both our material costs and our lead times.
All this means that we can create a beautiful, flexible, durable and properly sustainable handmade product, designed for you and made with love, care and precision for a price you’ll love and delivered in weeks!
Our custom structures can be designed to fit any space and can be partly or fully demountable. Similarly, the canvas can be fully or partly removed depending on the weather, the structures even look beautiful without the canvas covering!
They are easily erected, the smaller tents can be put up with 2 people, larger tents might need a couple more pairs of hands.
We can also offer an erection service, depending on geography and availability.
In addition to bespoke designs we also offer, from stock, our modular system comprising 3m x 3m or 3m x 4m bays.
You can add as many units as needed for your event. Tell us your audience numbers or your event ideas and we will work with you to create the perfect size and space.
Solid wall panels and internal dividing partitions can be added to create separate areas. Great if you’re using a tent as a bar or catering space.
Also, the larger tents, because of the modular system, divide really well into small individual spaces perfect for trade events, farmers markets, craft fairs etc.
There are a thousand ways in which our tents can be used, we’re hoping you’ll come up with something new! Why not challenge us to create the perfect venue for your next event?
