The Espree can be joined together at the ends or by the sides, great for if you need extra space that's seamlessly connected. Image courtesy of Godney Marquees
The Espree comes with walls, but when the weather is great why not leave them off for your party! (the crinkles are more obvious on this brand new tent, but subside over time). Image courtesy of Godney Marquees
With a traditional pole design with subtle curves, the Espree is great for weddings. This is 2x Espree 102 joined with a 28ft gutter. Image courtesy of MJM Marquees
Even with the internal poles in place, there is still plenty of room to eat and dance. Image courtesy of Godney Marquees
With stringing provided as standard to hold your fairy lights, it's up to your imagination how it can be dressed at night. Image courtesy of Godney Marquees
Easily attach the included walls at night

The Espree provides loads of room with an open feel and in a few minutes can be protected against the elements with the Velcro on walls
The 6 smaller legs come with a small shoe each to prevent the pole from sinking or slipping. Also included is a 560mm stake to prevent the shoe from slipping inwards
The included feet come with 3x 750x19mm double head irons per foot and make the tent stronger in harsher weather
The corners are heavily reinforced to handle stress points
Gutters can connect both sides of the Espree 102 to another Espree 102, or like here with an Espree 72 in the middle. Also available is a gutter to connect to the 28x38ft Eureka Capri too
Internally the gutters create a little bit more space, enougn for an extra table
You can essentially shorten the pole to get it into position easier, and then adjust it up to get a great tension. This is particularly useful on uneven ground

How does the Espree extend the hire seasons further than the rest in the class?
The strongest framework and heavy duty PVC
Extensive securing: Large triangle feet, 18x 750mm double-head stakes and 10x 560mm single-head stakes
Adjustable centre pole with a tie off rope from roof, rest assured the spike won't pierce the top
Walls included: 3x Panoramic walls, 3x Plain walls with centre zips
Compares (and in many way improves) against the the most expensive models available in the market. See our specs below for comparison or contact us to discuss
Anodised aluminium centre poles, fully adjustable to get a well tensioned roof (class leading 76mm / 2.99" diameter pole)
Heavy duty white opaque 550g PVC (19 oz) - UK fireproof approved to B.S. 5438, blackout and UV resistant. Not the lightest but probably the strongest
28x Stakes included. You don't have to use all of them in fine weather, but if the weather is variable then use them for piece of mind. A marquee is only as good as the ground it's secured to. See 50mph wind loadings for more details
6x outside triangle feet that take up to 4 large stakes each
Fairy light loops for the wall rims and wall hooks for folding the walls back
Erected within 1 1/4 hours (weather permitting, using 2 people, excluding walls, first few times may take longer)
All parts designed and stocked in the UK
Optional: XG Wall Ground Bar System. Stronger wall resistance against the wind, faster erection and take-down compared to the standard wall tabs and pegs
"We were absolutely blown away by this tent, we have never encountered such a versatile & easy to erect marquee. The instructions were easy to follow and the unit is very manageable. It is so easy to erect, our Commercial Director Kester and Hospitality Assistant Rosie managed to put this tent up on their own in less than an hour, only having seen it erected once before"
"We purchased the Espree 89 as a “cheap spare canopy” in case Wedding bookings required a last minute cover for reception drinks. However after the first practice installation at our yard we found it to be a good quality, easy to erect canopy that looked a great. Customers who saw pictures of it in our portfolio immediately started booking it and were very impressed by its look and durability. I would highly recommend it as a spare for larger companies and a great business opportunity for start up businesses."
Quality Marquee Hire
"Generally the quality is good with the poles much more robust than the original Capri marquees, the velro sides are harder to hang than the Capri sides but when all pegged down they do provide a more robust feel."
"You've solved all the problems with the Capri"
"If I could replace all of my Capri's with Espree's right now I would based on what I can see"
"With the Espree I'll start hiring them for weddings like I once did with the Capri's, I've had many sleepless nights worrying about if my Capri's will be there in the morning, but these Espree's seem much stronger"
"I would be worried about my Capri's in these gusts (30-40mph), but these Espree aren't moving with all this extra securing"
"I used to buy second hand Capri's for £1500, but I think its worth it to stretch the budget and invest in something thats new and looks better built"

How can leasing help me?
It can be tough raising enough money to buy marquees outright, we know, we used to be hirer's....
Be ready for your next booking
That's why we've partnered with a leasing company to give you the option to spread the payments over a longer period (2-5 years), essentially enabling you to buy the marquee before you have bookings, and they pay for it over time, using funds raised from each hire.
Startup or established business, no problem
Options are available for everyone, whether you are just starting your business or have been in the game for a while.
Huge tax benefits
Being 100% allowable against pre-tax profits, it can work out suprisingly cost effective. For example on a £5000 purchase, it can cost around £5,300 in total to buy the marquee after two years, including standard fees (exc. VAT).
Option to Own
At the end of the Lease Term, you will be offered the option to take ownership of the goods for a nominal fee, alternatively you can upgrade or return them.
Freight to Ireland and Scotland is extra. Please contact us.

The Espree uses the strongest T6061 hard anodised aluminium with a 76mm / 2.99" diameter centre tube and a 3.2mm wall. This is designed to be resilient for UK weather and is bigger and stronger than any of the competitors
The 550g UV resistant, UK fireproof certified, UV resistant, blackout PVC is a little heavier than others but benefits from more tensile strength and increased durability. This PVC is proven in the field for over 10 years on the Pagoda Canopy
All the PVC is fully tested in a UK laboratory to meet strict UK fireproof regulations. If you are using this at a public event be aware that if a fire officer finds that the PVC hasn't got a UK specific fireproof certificate (a general European or American will not be sufficient) you may be asked to take your marquee down
An adjustable centre foot allows you to increase or decrease the theoretical height of the centre poles. This is particularly useful for keeping the top tensioned on uneven ground and also makes it easier to erect. With a Pole lifter / Stake puller it makes it even easier to adjust the pole length when its in place and pull the 18 double head stakes out.
The Espree 102 comes with 3x Panoramic window walls and 3x Plain walls. All walls come with a centre zip, tabs at 500mm along the bottom of the wall, pins and heavy duty 50mm Velcro to connect to the roof. The Velcro has been fully tested to prevent water and wind entering the tent
The Espree has been exclusively designed for the UK market and weather. It uses far more securing than alternatives available and will therefore extend a hire season further than possible before
Connect 2x Espree 102 together to create even more space. If you have a Capri already then we have a bespoke gutter to connect them together too. If you have a 6x6m Pagoda Canopy then there is a gutter for that too! (great as a service tent)
The tailor made feet have been designed to allow unprecedented securing that covers outside and inside of the tent. Provided in the price are 3x 750mm double head stakes per foot. Add another stake for the most extreme conditions
With 18x 750mm double head stakes and 10x 560mm single head stakes, the Espree 102 is incredibly strong and versatile
With the longest part at 2.71m (part of the centre pole that is split with a sleeve), the Espree can fit in cars with a roof rack or most small vans
Covering manufacture defects. We don't think you'll need it, but for piece mind it's there
