    “Hi Mark,

    We’d just like to send you and your team a belated, but heartfelt Thank You, for your superb service, efficiency and wonderful marquee and all the trimmings – Our daughter’s (70 guests eventually!) Halloween party was a huge success and she is still receiving such lovely feedback so many weeks later!  Despite the Autumnal weather, your lighting and heaters had most guests happy to continue to enjoy the marquee until midnight, (rather than the ground floor of the house) and the carpeted hard floor was perfect for dancing and didn’t disturb the grass in the slightest!

    The beautiful lined interior was easy to decorate without using anything more than a few safety pins and some fish line and all contributed to a luxurious (and scary) festive party atmosphere! Cleaning up afterwards is never easy, but your team arrived promptly a few days later, to remove all the final traces of the big happy and memorable event! I am delighted to recommend you and your staff and your wonderful equipment to anyone that asks… and have already handed out quite a few of your cards. Thanks again.  Best Regards to all”

    “We recently used Abacus Marquee Hire to provide a marquee for my husband’s 60th birthday celebration. We particularly wanted one that would attach to the back of the house in order to extend our floor space and we were very pleased with the results.

    Most of our guests commented on how lovely the marquee was and we really felt that it contributed to everyone’s enjoyment of the party.One or two even asked for the contact details! The erection and dismantling of the marquee was all done carefully and efficiently, without any problem. My only regret is that we forgot to take any photos!”

    “We booked Abacus for our son’s 18th birthday party. We had a 12 x 4 marquee with a 6 x 4 marquee attached with a black and white dance floor. It looked great! Mark was incredibly helpful, advising us on what was available (lots!), allowing us to put together a package of lights, music and heating to suit our needs, as well as the all important portable event loo’s! 

    The party was a huge success and many of the party-goers remarked on how lovely the marquee was. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and we would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending Abacus to our family and friends. Thank you Mark.”

    “Hi Mark.

    I’d like to say a big “Thank You” for everything you did to make Jacqueline’s party a success.  The Marquee and decorations looked lovely and the pictures taken by Chloe really captured the birthday event.

    Upon arrival the guests thought the Marquee looked beautiful with the pink theme and matching carpet!  And enjoyed the vodka luge, the DJ, and his great selection of music, professionalism and enthusiasm.

    I’d like to thank you again for making the 18th a memorable success.  Your organisational skills and responsiveness during the planning of the event were great and your wide range of contacts made the planning stage pleasurable, from the clients perspective. This groundwork ensured the party was a great success and feedback from the guests was excellent.

    The catering and bar service worked really well and I felt the bar assistants were very professional and really helped to make the evening a success.  Once again many thanks for all your hard work and it was a pleasure to work with you arranging the party.  I would use your company to organise future events.  Thank you once again”

    “Dear Mark

    I would like to thank you all for helping me celebrate my 50th birthday, the marquee was great and looked amazing!  The guys that put the marquee up were great and a really nice friendly bunch of guys and girl, the bar and dance floor along with the lighting looked brilliant.

    We were so pleased we had the bar staff too they were so helpful and really helped make the night, please send our thanks to them too.  Gary the DJ was also great as usual and his set up added to the sparkle of the night.

    The only thing I would have changed would be to ensure the ground the flooring is going on is completely flat and sturdy as where we took the plants out of our flower bed to make room for the marquee the ground sank down and made quite a dip in the floor which was a little bit of a hazard for people in high shoes we did n’t know what the hard flooring was made of or how it fixed together had we done we would have covered the ground with some hard board or something first.

    We will definitely recommend Abacus Marquee Hire and would not hesitate to use your services again. Thanks Again guys!”

    “Booking with Abacus was the best idea I could have had!  Not only was booking a marquee really easy, the boys who came to put it up were a great laugh and all the hard work is done for you.  The possibilities are endless when it comes down to picking all of your finishing touches, even if you choose only a few added extras (I chose fairy lights, lighting and chairs), the wide range of furniture, flooring and sound equipment means your party can go without a hitch!

    I most definitely had the best birthday i have had in years, thanks to these guys!  I could not thank these guys enough and would definitely use you again :)”

    “Dear Mark

    Thank you so much for the excellent service we received from you.  It definitely took the stress out of hosting an 18th birthday party for 50 teenagers and I believe most who attended considered it an epic party.  The whole process was very smooth and the set up prompt and efficient.

    The marquee looked great – it was warm and cosy thanks to the heaters, the hard floor was excellent for dancing and the circular tables really useful for drinks and snacks.  We will definitely enlist your help next time we are hosting a large party and will recommend you to others.”

    “I’d contacted Abacus late summer, as I wanted to host a NYE party as well as a 50th and 21st birthday. From the onset, Mark was very efficient and helpful with his advice and suggestions and I confirmed the booking without any hesitation. As my event drew closer I started to get nervous and was constantly emailing Abacus with all my questions but each time I was sent back messages of reassurance.

    And then for the big day-Mark and his team were thorough professionals and delivered as promised without any flaws. Our event was a huge success and on behalf of the Patel family, I thank Mark and his crew for making this all possible! Very much appreciated, highly recommend and will surely use your services again!”
