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, 12x 750mm double-head stakes and 6x 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: 2x Panoramic walls, 2x Plain walls with centre zips
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
18x 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
8x 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)
"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"

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 Espree² 72 comes with 2x Panoramic window walls and 2x 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 Espree² 72 together to create even more space. If you have a Capri already then we have a bespoke gutter to connect them together. If you have a 6x6m Pagoda Canopy then there is a gutter for that too! (works 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 12x 750mm double head stakes and 6x 560mm single head stakes, the Espree² 72 can be secured well
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
After charging an industry average price an Espree could have paid for itself in as little as 7 hires (excludes VAT, delivery and hire related costs)
EXAMPLE SEATING PLANS

The Espree² 72 allows for seating up to 56 and / or a dance floor. Join them together seemlessly to create even more space.
ADDONS AND GUTTERS
To join ends (to Espree² 72, 102 or 148)
(for the 28ft / 8.53m end)
Pole lifter and stake puller
(To achieve the maximum tension on the roof and pull out the stakes with ease)
Wall Bar System
(To quickly secure wall bases)
We recommend gutters to increase the flexibility of your Espree's. With one of our UK manufactured gutters you can even use a 6x6m Pagoda as a service tent on the side. The pole lifter & stake puller will help to get the best tensioned roof and make life easier taking out the 12 double head stakes. The exclusive Wall Ground Bar System increases the speed you'll be able to secure the bottom of the walls, and subsequent removal of a wall.
