Optional Extras:

Groundbars are poles that connect the footplates to effectively make the marquee in to a strong box. They give added strength to the framework and add to the stability of the Classic DIY Marquee (Tie downs or other means of anchoring to the ground are still required)

Roof lining: transforms the interior by hiding the metalwork in the roof
Roof, wall and curtain linings: wall linings cover the PVC walls whilst curtain linings add a finishing touch by hiding the metal legs
Roof, wall, curtain and swag linings: Swags add a gathered finish around the pelmet of the roof lining (includes walls and curtains)

Blackout roof and wall linings: create a unique atmosphere inside a marquee by darkening the area to nightclub levels.
Tabs are sewn in to the roof lining for you to attach your own lighting to create a starlight effect. Ideal for parties.

Carpet flooring: Gives a fantastic finish in any marquee, nailed in place to give a smooth trip-free surface (suitable for high heels). Includes waterproof underlay and nails. Carpet is supplied on a 2m wide roll.

Tie down kit: Strongly recommended for anchoring the marquees down on soft surfaces. Consists of 12 large metal stakes and 12 ratchet straps (available in white or orange)

Festoon lighting: A string of bulbs with dimmer control that fits above the roof lining.
Chandelier lighting: Comes with two brass effect chandeliers, dimmer control, RCD plug and 25m lead. Everything you need to easily and elegantly light your marquee.

Solid frame doors: 2m wide door frame with 2 doors (one with lock and handles), ideal for creating a more impressive entrance or keeping the heat in during the winter.

Carry bags and boxes: Ideal for storing and transporting your marquee though we should point out that the marquee does arrive in sturdy cardboard boxes.
