The very best in tent hire

Springing from a love of outdoor parties, The Arabian Tent Company was founded in 2004 by Katherine Hudson. The magic of festivals and marquee parties captured Katherine’s imagination, and ever since she has designed, created and executed luxury marquee weddings, VIP areas at festivals across the UK, and brought delight and wonder to home celebrations.

Our Tents…

Arabian Tent Company are proud to own the largest collection of themed marquees in the UK, all designed and made in-house.

This collection of unique marquees are not just confined to Arabian influences, and have inspired interiors with a multitude of themes as well as the ethnic influences that inspired us originally.These include an ‘Arts and Crafts’ inspired tent interior, vintage-style tents, tea party tents as well as the Arabic, Moroccan and Bollywood themes which were the original source of inspiration for the collection.

We provide all the detail as well as free advice and expertise; from dance floor to table decor, floral centrepieces to outdoor lighting, and of course magical tented environments from the smallest 3m x 3m tent to the largest 12m x 30m, with the huge range of ‘finishing touches’ and furniture, available to hire with or without the tents.

Intimate Events & Home Celebrations…

Discover luxury, ethical and environmentally sensitive marquee hire for events from the Covid-friendly 10 people, right up to huge events for 300 guests.

Temporary marquee structures from The Arabian Tent Company are the perfect solution for creating extra space to help meet Covid-19 safety requirements. Marquees are extremely adaptable, have good ventilation and can be divided up and interior designed to suit your needs.

Last year our smaller tents were hugely popular. Our vibrant Frame Tent range are ideal for bijou parties for small gatherings with the smallest one measuring 4.5m x 4.5m which is ideal for a dinner party or informal party for 10-15 guests. The Oyster Pearl tent (similar to Sperry sailcloth tents) proved very popular for weddings for 30 guests.

Arabian Tents are proud to have weathered the 2020 Covid storm and are looking forward to returning to a busy 2021 season, with their renowned range of tents and sumptuous party surroundings delivered by a passionate events team that have won multiple awards within the Wedding and Festival Industries and who take pride in creating environments that are described as ‘magical’ for events in the South East of England.


At Arabian Tents we are thinking about ways we can all take responsibility for helping with our impact, finding ways to minimise it (ask for our eco-tips for this,) and providing an option to off-set for our clients where carbon still has to be spent.

With 15 years in the events industry, and with an ethical, sustainable and aesthetic edge, you are in the most transformational and imaginative hands with The Arabian Tent Company.

Our conscientious team who want to assist you in making the right decisions for your next event from sourcing battery generators to power it, locally sourced vegetarian food to feed guests, or carbon-offsetting schemes to plant a tree for each of your guests to nourish them into the future, you’ll enjoy the experience of working with us too.

About the Arabian Tent Company

Springing from a love of outdoor parties, The Arabian Tent Company was founded in 2004 by Katherine Hudson. The magic of festivals and marquee parties captured Katherine’s imagination, soon she was hooked and decided she had to try and put on her own event.

After searching the whole of the UK for a suitable party tent, and finding nothing but white PVC marquees, Katherine realised she would have to try a little harder if she wanted to do something truly special.
