Awaiting the decorators!

Bringing together close friends and family, the get together just outside Darlington, County Durham, was a great success. After a sunny start to the afternoon, the overcast evening didn’t dampen the mood for the 60+ guests, who had managed to keep the whole event a secret from the lady of the house!

Thanks to the ambient lighting and heaters provided, everyone remained cosy and content throughout the evening as they helped this lovely family to celebrate.

“Thank you for adding to a perfect day!”     Happy Party Host

Its always a pleasure helping to make events like this run as smoothly as possible. If you’re hosting a party at home and would like to offer your VIPs shelter, we have a range of Mini-Marquee sizes as well as a selection of party furniture for hire.

Stunning Surroundings


The hosts offered guests a shelter from the sun

We recently had the pleasure of helping a family near Darlington celebrate a special birthday, installing a 3m x 9m Mini-Marquee within the stunning grounds of their home.

As the sun shone, our combined party gazebo equipped with Bistro tables and chairs offered their guests somewhere to relax amongst friends and enjoy the day in style.

Wedding Bells Ring for a Very Special Couple!

Another fantastic event for MM Hire Durham to have been a part of! We were delighted to be a part of Catherine and Deans wedding celebrations, providing a 6m hexagonal Mini-Marquee for their wedding after-party in Coxhoe. Accompanying their own gazeebo, shelter from wind and rain was provided allowing the celebrations to carry on into the early hours.

The family were very pleased with how everything went and were kind enough to give us great feedback!

“We hired a hexagonal Marquee for a garden party after our wedding and from the first email to the minute it was collected, the service has been first class! Friendly, professional and courteous. I would (and already have!) highly recommend Mini-Marquee Hire Durham and I will definitely use them again.”

Girly Birthday Bash in Durham

We were recently asked to provide a small Marquee as an outside shelter during a party in the garden of a family celebrating their daughter’s special birthday.

As the birthday girl loves pink, it was a great surprise when she arrived to find our 4.5m x 3m Hot pink Mini- Marquee installed alongside their patio doors. Our “Happy Birthday” sign completed the décor perfectly!

Our “Happy Birthday” banner completes the look!

Providing shelter for their guests allowed their house to stay spotless, even in the event of a shower. Their daughter and her friends could party the evening away in the garden while they could relax as the hosts.

If you fancy adding something a bit different to that girly get together, perhaps you’re planning a Hen party and need some covered outdoor space?

Getting Sporty at a Local Hockey Event

6m Hexagonal Marquee hire

Positioned in the sun awaiting clients for their much-needed massages!

At a recent Hockey event, Durham Hockey Club needed a space for their massage tables, in order to provide a quiet, secluded treatment shelter.

They asked Mini-Marquee Hire Durham to install a 6m x 6m Hexagonal unit, which did the job perfectly.

Our fully enclosed White and Silver gazebo glistened in the Durham sunshine, as thousands of Hockey enthusiasts gathered for the popular event.

We regularly work with Sports clubs and associations across Durham, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Sunderland and into North Yorkshire providing event Marquees and furniture hire.

Our flexibility means we can deliver, set up, dismantle and collect at your convenience, leaving you to focus on the rest of the event.

The Easter Bunny Visits Teesside Shopping Park!

As part of the Easter celebrations this year, Teesside Shopping Park hosted an Easter Egg hunt across the site. We were asked to set up a 4.5m x 3m Mini-Marquee to house the organisers office, so that everyone knew where to come for information on the day.

Adding a bit of family fun and Easter excitement to their shopping trips, families visited the complex in their droves to join in the celebrations and the event was a great success.

Great to be back!

After providing a Marquee to shelter their beer garden during a successful event last Summer, the Landlord of the Anchor Inn, Boroughbridge invited Mini-Marquee Hire Durham back – this time the special occasion was a presentation evening.

Pub Gazebo in Beer Garden

The additional covered space acted as a temporary extension.

The Community Pub lies close to the Ripon canal, offering both locals and new visitors a lovely setting to enjoy a relaxing drink. Its no surprise that the venue is also popular for parties and evening entertainment.

Our 9m x 3m shelter offered guests protection from the unpredictable British weather and gave the Anchor Inn additional space to host the presentation evening. It was great to be back in North Yorkshire and work with the Anchor Inn once again – a lovely bunch of people!

We work with venues across the Durham Tees Valley region to help make their events a success. Whether its a small Wedding, a Christening, an Anniversary celebration or a Birthday bash, we have a Mini-Marquee to suit.

Our combination Marquee allowed the flexibility to be perfectly positioned in the grounds of the secluded small holding.
