Marquee hire for the London to Brighton Bike Ride 2016

Events, News Jul 04, 2016 By David Coleman

Seaholme provided the marquee hire for a second year at the London to Brighton bike ride in June, run by The British Heart Foundation charity and sponsored by Tesco.

After a highly successful 2015 event, we were delighted to be asked again to help with this famous event, providing marquees at both the starting point in Clapham Common and the finish line on Madeira Drive in Brighton.

Both locations required an open-fronted VIP marquee adorned with ivory roof and wall linings.

At Clapham Common, the VIP marquee stood at 6m x 12m with an adjoining 6m x 6m marquee. Inside we positioned several poseur tables, trestle tables and wooden patio sets while clear panel windows, portable flooring and charcoal grey carpet finished the ‘indoor’ look. The larger Registration tent at 6m x 18m was filled with trestle tables and plastic bistro chairs.

The VIP tent in Brighton was a longer and thinner 3m x 24m, with open ends, to run alongside the final metres of the ride. Our new white and grey striped walls added a touch of fun to the exterior.

Next door were two further marquees – a small Merchandise tent for Tescos and a 32m long first aid tent for St Johns Ambulance. As they were up adjacent to the eastern end of Brighton beach, each of these marquees were secured with weights and guy ropes to counteract any forceful sea breezes.

Smaller tents were also set up at Ditchling Beacon and Hove Lawns.

The project ran over two days to include transportation, assembly and dismantle of the marquees, all carried out by our professional and efficient team.
