Expert advice

What size marquee do you need?

You don’t want to find yourself with a marquee that’s too big, and therefore half empty. Even worse, a marquee that’s too full, with people unable to get in! To help you make an informed decision on what is likely to be right for your event, we’ve put together a guide to the approximate number of guests that can be accommodated in marquees of different sizes. Please note that there are a lot of different factors that can affect the size of marquee you need, so it’s always best to speak to our team as you start to plan your event. We’ll make sure everything is taken into consideration so that you get the marquee that most suitable for your needs.


We offer marquee and accessory hire for events right across the north of England, so whatever you’re planning, however many people you expect to attend, get in touch. We’ll make sure you have the perfect marquee for the job.

Note: seating is based on guests being seated 10 around a 5 ft diameter table. Standing is based on buffet style.

The addition of items such as dance floor, staging, bars etc will decrease the available space for guests. This must be taken into account when choosing your marquee. We are happy to advise you on the size you may need for your event.

The team at Fairbairn Marquees is here to help your event succeed. Our marquee size guide is a great first step! Contact our office in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear on 0191 483 2426
