“We hired Abacus Marquee’s to create a football colour theme for my little boys holly communion. I can’t stress enough how good these guys are from the 1st phone call to the dismantling and the end everything run as smooth as clock work.

They go above and beyond to make it happen even last minute “oopsss” I think I need second marquee phone call the week before the event they pulled it off. the whole team have been a pleasure to deal with and work with.

And the event itself is one that will be remembered for years to come. I actually can’t wait to get the chance to use these guys again the bar a fridge wear a top hit with our guest along with the paper lanterns that just set the right theme and the colour uplighter’s which you can change to suit your mood, no damage to our grass either which is a bonus considering it was up for 6 nights.

I honestly can’t thank use enough well done Mark & well done to the guys in pink hope to come across use all again in future service excellent.”

“Used Abacus for some pre Wedding events at home, and went for a 6m x 9m marquee with roof lining and LED uplighters. Fantastic service from start to finish! Mark and Adam were very helpful with suggestions when quoting and the setup/take-down team were excellent. Marquee looked awesome!

Would highly recommend these guys!

“Mark and the guys at Abacus marquees where an absolute pleasures and very professional. We used them for our beer festival in April and not only was the set up and pack down quick and precise but they where very accommodating! Would definitely recommend for a wide use of functions and we will be using again in the future!”

“I hired a marquee from Abacus for my birthday party. Mark really helped me out of a tight spot – sorted a marquee in record time, and his team who put up and took down the tent were first class. Super helpful, nothing was too much trouble, so polite, on time and really tidy.

Great value for money – would highly recommend. A1 Service”

We hired a marquee for my daughter’s 16th birthday. Mark arranged everything and the marquee was put up and taken down as agreed all for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

18th Birthday in London

Jason Frankl

“Planning an event is never without its stresses and when getting our house setup for our daughter’s bat mitzvah we were going to use the same ‘summer’ grade marquee we used for our first daughter. The winter storms a coupe of weeks ago had other ideas and it started to collapse so with less than 1 week to go I called Mark to see if he could help us in our emergency for a 3x6m marquee.

Amazingly he had one exactly the size we needed and two days later it was all setup. Everything was simple and straightforward. The crew to put up and take down the marquee were fast, friendly, turned up when they said they would and cleaned up after themselves.

The party was a great success and we certainly didn’t stress about whether or not the marquee would stay up for another week.

Thank you to all the team at Abacus and we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for marquee hire.”

” We would highly recommend the company, very helpful and professional.  Everyone we dealt with was fantastic.

The biggest thanks need to go to the boys who done a fantastic job putting up the marquee whilst battling against the snow, wind and freezing temperatures ensuring we were still able to go ahead with our sons 18th party.  
Thanks again and we will definitely recommend Abacus.”

“We were thrilled with our recent Abacus marquee hire. Mark, Adam & the construction team couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful & professional. The whole process, from booking to taking down, went very smoothly.

The Abacus team were committed to the success of the party and I was reassured throughout that, despite it being February, I wouldn’t regret hiring a marquee!!! 

Thanks Abacus! Keep up the great work.”

“We hired Abacus to do a small marquee and provide some serve-ware for our engagement party. From the first contact to schedule a site visit, though to the actual site visit, agreeing the services contract, set up and eventual take-down, the whole experience was delightful.

Mark, Adam and the team were very organised, super-responsive and followed up regularly in the run up to the event with amazing customer service. The day of set-up, the team had some poorly staff but they promptly called me to say they were running late, assured me hey would get everything done and worked from 5-9pm (in the dark) to ensure everything was set up and working properly.

The marquee was heated and lit and looked great! I cannot say enough good things about the commitment from the Abacus team and how efficiently they dealt with the removals. I would definitely use them again! Thank you Mark, Adam, Dan and the rest of the team!”

“We are so pleased to have found them from when I booked them they offered various services , heating lights etc . They kept us posted and were really helpful.

On the day they turned up and on time very reliable and when they came to take it down too . All our guests were really impressed I’d never had a marquee before but I’m glad I did best decision I made and my sons 18 this birthday was went really well with plenty space in there for DJ and guests to dance in and have a great time.

Once again a big thank you to the boys who put up and took down the marquee would highly recommend them.”

Thanks again

“We hired a 6m x 12m marquee for my husbands 40th in our back garden. From the first communication to taking it all down yesterday, the service was so professional. Each team member was so courteous and polite.

The marquee looked amazing and enabled us to invite more guests, without needing the expense of a venue. The price was really reasonable when you compare it to what you would pay for a hall, decorations, food, drinks etc and I would not hesitate to use you again or recommend you.

Thanks so much. I look forward to our next party!”
