Marquees & temporary structures

Marquees & temporary structures

When the sun is shining there is nothing quite like an outdoor event to make everyone smile, however as the British public knows only too well, we can’t always rely on the weather at these occasions. Marquees and temporary structures are the best options at large outdoor events, offering guests a place to keep dry should the weather take a turn for the worse, yet still providing the opportunity for an enjoyable event al fresco should the weather behave itself. London is a great city for outdoor events and SquareMeal’s list of venues below all offer superb al fresco spaces that include the added bonus of a marquee or temporary structure.
