FAQs

 

Q. How many tipis / what size marquee do I need for my event?

A: This all depends on how many people you have attending your event, if they are all sitting or standing, and what else you would like to have inside. We can build our Tipis to suit your event by selecting which sides to open, and  adding an extension panel or an entrance to create more space. As a general guide, for up to 70 guests you'll need 1 Tipi, for up to 120 guests you'll need 2 Tipis, for 120+ you'll need 3+ Tipis and for 170+ you'll need 4+ Tipis. Our 18m x 12m (double pole) Celeste Marquee can hold around 120 people, our 24m x 12m (triple pole) can hold around 200, and our 30m x 12m (quad pole) can hold around 250.

Q. What area do you cover?

A. We can set an event up anywhere! Please get in touch for delivery costs.

Q. What accessories are included in the price?

A. Country Tipis come with the essentials; woven matted flooring with waterproof underlay, and lighting (a chandelier, a disco ball, LED uplighters and fairy lights throughout. Optional extras worth considering are a dancefloor, stage, outdoor fire pit, pallet-wood or horsebox bar, rustic scaffold board tables with benches / folding wooden chairs, chill-out furniture, nimbus mini tipi, wine barrels, heaters and a catering tent. We work with a number of trusted suppliers who can provide toilets and a generator and alternative furniture.

 Q. What if the weather is bad?

A. Our tipis are waterproof, durable and provide a great shelter from the elements. If the weather is fine we can raise the side of the tipis so that you and your guests can enjoy the surroundings. If the weather is poor we can keep the sides closed to protect you, with the option to add an entrance porch or tunnel to create a dramatic opening.

Q. Could you recommend a venue for me to have my Tipi event?

A. Of course! We have a working relationship with a number of local venues, and are based beside Vanstone Park Venue which boasts an idyllic location bordering on vast woodland in rural Hertfordshire.

Q. Can you provide and run the bar for us?

A. Yes we can! In late 2016 we launched 'The Hammered Peg,' and can provide either Peggy's Horsebox Bar or our 4m rustic wooden bar complete with experienced staff, glasses and fridges to your event.

Q. How do you spell Tipi, and where did they originate from?

A. There are a number of options here; Tepee, Teepee or Tipi! It originates from the Mid 18th century: from Sioux tīpī meaning 'dwelling'. A traditional teepee is constructed from buffalo hides sewn together and wrapped around a tripod or cone of poles, and was used by plains Indians after the introduction of the horse from Europe. The teepee was easy to disassemble and transport, using the poles to make a sledge to drag behind horses or dogs, providing the perfect portable shelter for these nomadic tribes.

Q. How do Teepees differ from a wigwam? 

 A. A wigwam is a domed dwelling formerly used by certain Native American and First Nations tribes. It is generally a frame of bent poles covered with pieces of bark and skins, bonded using mud. This type of shelter is semi-permanent and not transportable.
