With Autumn most definitely in the air our thoughts are turning to creating some stunning Winter events for our clients. From enchanting, sparkling winter wonderlands to more intimate and cosy soirees, the winter months offer the chance to inject great warmth into any occasion.

Things to consider when planning your Winter events


A big consideration for many of our corporate and private clients in the Winter months is space. In the summer months events can often spill over into outside space, but this space can still be utilised effectively in the cooler months. We have erected marquees that have provided an add on to indoor space or provided a completely separate space so that the event could take on a theme of its own.

With any Winter event, ensuring your guests are warm will be a top priority. Technically this is not a problem when hiring a marquee, as we have full heating solutions that provide the right level of warmth and cosiness. The feeling of warmth can be echoed through food and drink choices. Mulled wine, hog roasts, warm apple cider and cosy, warming canapes such as mini Yorkshire Puddings can all add to the Winter warmth ambience. The interior design of the space can also add to the whole cosiness of your event. Draping blankets over chairs, soft rugs and candlelight will all enhance the warmth we can provide through heating solutions.

Dark Days, Bright Nights – Adding Lighting to your Events

One of the key delights of Winter events is adding a bit of sparkle through lighting. When the nights start to draw in we can really make the most of the lighting solutions we have on offer. This might be chandeliers, lanterns, uplighters, simple fairy lights or a combination to create a stunning effect. Combine this with candlelight and the results can create the “wow” factor for all guests on arrival.

By combining all the above factors of space, warmth and light you can create a truly unique winter event. Utilising a marquee to either extend the space you have on offer, or to create a separate winter wonderland, can provide a solution you may not have considered for winter events. With a clever use of our thermostatically controlled heating and imaginative lighting solutions your winter events will have a brightness and warmth that your guests will remember.
