We have lots different styles of marquees. They are classic or premium marquee/Pavilion, Electron peg pole marquee, self-erect peg pole marquee as well range of small marquees.
What Size/Type Marquee Do You Need?
This depends on some factors we can supply marquee for small groups up large events of 500+ people.
These factors include:
– Amount of people at the event
– Style of event – Formal sit-down, casual stand-up buffet, Cocktail Style, Trade Show Event
– If you are having dance floor / bridal table / bar area
– Style of tables – round or rectangular tables etc.
So Please contact Gold Event team and we will help work out what marquee is best suited for your event.
All marques are quoted on being pegged down on grass or gravel surfaces, if it’s required to be set up on a concrete
surface, e.g., tennis court, weighting down of the marquee will be required and this incurs an additional cost.
Please note that only the premium marquee can be weighted down.
Our Marquees are also quoted with no flooring. If this is required, please ask the gold event hire team about options.
What is difference between the Premium and a Classic Marquee?
Classic Marquee: This Marquee has 5mtr bays. Therefore, it can be increased in decreased in size by 5mtr allotments. The Classic Marquee has hook/clip on walls (If walls are required). Walls can be unhooked and folded, hooked back or completely unhooked and folded up and put away (in a dry safe spot). There are straps on the outside every 5mtr bay and on each corner so extra room must be allowed in the space that it is to be erected. There are clear and white wall and roof options available. This marquee is pegged in or can be stood with weights for an additional cost.
Premium Marquee: This Marquee has 3mtr bays. Therefore, I can be increased or decreased in size by 3mtr allotments. It has sliding walls making the walls easy to open and shut without worrying about taking them off. The Premium Marquee also has no straps on outside of Marquee at all – unless the weather predictions are extreme – giving a seamless elegant look. This marquee is pegged or can be stood with weights for an additional cost.

Silk Roof Lined?
Silk is a Stunning option to hide all roof structure on a white roof marquee. Fairy lighting can also be added to the silk lining and sits between the roof and silk. The fairy lights then shine softly through the silk lining.
Lighting in Marquee?
We suggest one of following, Rustic festoon chandeliers, Ball Lights or Festoon Pendant lighting to allow adequate
lighting for dinner and speeches. These can then be dimmed or switched off later in night to create a different
atmosphere with the deluxe fairy lighting providing the main, much softer light source.
Please Note all lighting must be supplied and installed by the Gold Event Team unless a supplier is approved by GOLD Event Hire before your event. This is due to all our equipment being up to standard and regularly tested and tagged.
Any damage caused by the hirer, fitting unapproved lights, that causes burn or damage to the marquee or roof
structure is responsible for replacements costs that start from $5000 depending on the section damages. Due to
WH&S standards all gold event marquees are installed with a Circuit breaker.
Extras for Marquee?
– Leg Draping are for legs of marquee and cover the steel structure. They can be on all legs or only front side if requested.
– Bridal Table Skirting is great for the font of bridal table and looks stunning. It also gives the bridal party some privacy so don’t have keep legs cross all night.
– The Bridal Back Drop with Waterfall Back Drop Fairy Lights is an option we can also supply. You can choose to have the silk and lights, just the silk or just the lights. However, the Silk Bridal Back Drop softens the Fairy Lights, which works better for photos.
We can provide outside lighting with our festoon lighting and poles. The festoon lighting is a self-install item as everyone has their own ideas and ways they would like it set up, however the gold event hire team is more than happy to assist with this. We also have flood lights available.
