The Arabian Tent Company was born out of a love of festivals, and the very first marquees Katherine designed became popular festival tents as The Bedouin Café tent, The Loose Tea Party and the infamous Rabbit Hole stage, now frequented by Celebrities and Royalty at Glastonbury festival.

Festivals wouldn't be festivals without Tents!

With our background firmly in festivals, we understand how to create a special space that guests will relish being inside.

Our structures make ideal VIP tents, green rooms, backstage areas, Press tents, Secret party spaces and promotional areas.

Our outdoor furnishings are also popular festival-furnishing, with lounge seating packages possible of seating over 400 people on sofas, pouffes, coffee tables, side tables, rugs, brass tray tables and chests creating a snug oriental feel in the backstage Lucky Cat at Camp Bestival.

And new for 2020 the Tropical Hangout hammocks perfect for outdoor chill out areas - have been added to our collection.

We are known for making spaces inspiring and fun for festival goers and you'll see our cocktail tables and parasols dotted outside bar tents at festivals throughout the country, and our daybeds in Ibiza!

We continue to hire backstage festival tents each year to Shambala, SW4, How The Light Gets In, Brighton Pride, the new Secret Garden Party (shhh don't tell anyone), and many others.

And as a small business with a conscience and awareness of how impactful events can be on the environment, we're concerned with looking at our best practises to see where we can improve, and help others improve around us with minimising our environmental impact.  From 2020 we are limiting our delivery distance to within 150 miles of our West Sussex base, so do bear that in mind when you get in touch.

We love to work with creatives who have a vision for the new, and are happy to work with Production Teams on creating a bespoke marquee design,or provide hire of our trusted festival favourites such as the Bombay Boudoir marquee, Purple Palace tent or pole tents.

Our large range of unique and handmade props, unusual furniture hire and interesting accessories are the perfect finishing touch to any festival tent interior...or exterior! And this furniture can be used to create outdoor areas in front of the marquee to utilise as much of the space as possible and create inviting chill out areas for VIP guests to relax and unwind in the sun.

For a tailored quote please get in touch with;

  • the area of your festival you are interested in tenting
  • any preference in our tent structures or style (inspiration images are always helpful!) and whether you'd need furniture or lighting too.
  • the location (ideally postcode) you would need it delivered to
  • your budget (so we don't get too carried away!).

As a backstage artists’ area these tents are pretty much perfect as a sumptuous, relaxing area as even the most jaded of performers can’t help but appreciate the riot of colour and fun they create.
