Stemming from a worldwide search for materials and ideas, the Arabian Tent Company has flourished creating magical moments with our Surrey marquee hire. From the very first Moroccan tent our founder Katherine sourced from her travels, we have built a reputation for creating magical environments that bring life to birthday and wedding parties, believing such moments deserve to be marked in a way that is remembered. Whether it is painstakingly embedding thousands of tiny glittering mirrors or depicting scenes and characters from Alice In Wonderland on wall panels, we ensure our client's parties get the enchanting effect they dreamt of.
We are proud to be active members of the Surrey community. With Guildford nestled in the middle, Surrey is far reaching from Farnham in the West to Tatsfield in the East, and bordering onto the borough on London, it is a popular place to live with celebrities - Davina McCall chose the Purple Palace for her birthday at her house in Woldingham, Surrey!
Famous for its beautiful landscape, Surrey is also where many of the finest thoroughbred horse stud farms are located with Godalming, Epsom and Haslemere amongst others producing some of the best race horses the country has to offer.
If your garden or outside space has limited flat land, never fear as our tents can be set up in different shapes and sizes to accommodate your land space.
Each marquee you can hire from us transports its guests into another world, whether it is fictional like the English Tea Tent or exotic like the Arabian Tent and the Viva La Fiesta Tent. They create the perfect place to hold a party getting your guests talking and smiling. Our English Tea Tent and Arabian Tent recently hosted a 21st birthday party in Surrey. Here you can watch a video of our Disney themed Arabian and English Tea Tent birthday party.
Loving one tent in particular is often the first step for clients in building a theme for their occasion. The English Tea Tent has a charmingly child-like tone that suited the Disney theme. The tent itself was designed based on a childhood love of Alice In Wonderland. With more than 200 doilies sewn into the canopy and each wall depicting either a scene or character from the book the tent has created an environment that has proven popular with Bestival and Camp Bestival party goers. The tent lends itself to summer parties, children's parties, marquee hire Surrey, weddings or other celebratory occasions.
The Arabian Tent is a bold, glittering space that evokes the warmth of the Arabian Desert. The tent is ideal for parties with its deep red patchwork colours contrasting with the shiny mirror ball effect created by many tiny mirrors. Our Surrey Marquee Hire has provided the perfect stage for performers.
Our Viva La Fiesta Tent creates a beautiful backdrop for a wedding reception or summer party for your marquee hire Surrey. The tent is inspired by travels in Latin America and uses bold motifs that draw from festivals and traditions in Mexico. Katherine worked with the jewellery designer Rosita Bonita to ensure the tent was produced to the highest quality and achieved the fresh, immersive effect they were after.
With each tent able to hold up to 260 people there is plenty of room for all your friends and family. The tents are built in a single day and are fitted with beautifully intricate details. Our marquees can stand alone or be enhanced with a range of props designed to suit each environment.

Depending on how many guests you have, whether you are dining, and if you want a dance floor and other seating and chillout areas, will determine what size of tent you will require.
This table provides a good reference to work out what kind of space you will need. If you are having an even bigger party than our maximum capacity, we suggest putting more tents together!
This area takes into account the tent itself as well as the guide ropes, which need 2 metres around every side to ensure it is set up safely. Use the chart above to work out exactly how much space you will need.
Being frame structures our tents can be erected on hard standings such as tennis courts, concrete car parks and gravel drives and this requires eye bolts to be drilled into the floor. Because of their construction, they require the area where they are being erected to be level. Scaffolding can be put in place to level areas that have too much of a slope to them. However, if the ground is slightly uneven then a hard-flooring upgrade can be used to level out the floor within the tent.
Our tents vary in size, some of our smaller tents can be set up in a few hours, whilst our largest tents can take several days. The build would ideally begin on Monday or Tuesday to ensure everything is ready for a Saturday event.
To give you an idea of the build and what to expect at your party, here's a time-lapse of one of previous events.
The exteriors are made from high quality cotton canvas which is regularly waterproofed throughout the season. It is important when positioned on windy sites to put in additional supporting poles inside the tent to support the pyramid ceiling, to ensure they can endure winds of up to 30 mph.
Our tents can be easily heated on cool days as their vented elevated ceilings and canvas exteriors are geared towards providing shade on a hot day rather than warmth on a cool one.
We would come and take them down the following day (usually a Sunday).
We will always require power. Most lighting can run from a 13-amp domestic supply or a generator. Our cabling is weatherproof.
Every single party and event is unique, however, we have given a few examples below to give you an idea of how much it might cost.
