12 marquees for Brighton Half Marathon 2018

Events, News Feb 24, 2018 By Seaholme

Seaholme are providing marquee hire for this year’s Brighton Half Marathon, organised by The Sussex Beacon charity and sponsored by The Grand Brighton.

Glorious sunshine and all-systems-go for the team this weekend, as we set up an array of marquees for the seafront event starting at 9am on Sunday 24th February. It will be the 28th annual half marathon in Brighton, sponsored by The Grand for the first time this year.

Starting on Madeira Drive, the race passes many Brighton landmarks between Ovingdean, Old Steine and Hove Lagoon. Twelve of our marquees will be strategically positioned at various parts of the course, providing everything from the Corporate marquee and interior furnishings to the Massage and First Aid tents. It’s our fourth time supplying marquees for this event and it’s a little different every year.

Several large marquees hired for the day include the Charity Village, at 3m x 72m and 3m x 48m, with partitions. The Corporate Relay and VIP tent will stretch 3m x 60m, complete with glass doors and windows, wooden floor and Marine Blue carpet. Inside will be furnished – in keeping with décor at The Grand – with ivory roof and wall linings, gold swags, plus luxury Banqueting Chairs with seat pads.

The Youth tent is a whopping 9m x 27m with wooden flooring and there’s even a Team Beacon tent, a Changing Marquee and Baggage tent for the runners.

Aside from marquee hire, we’ll be delivering marquee lighting, trestle tables, cocktail tables, Bistro chairs, ¾ ton weights and a forklift.

It’s going to be a busy weekend for Seaholme – including transportation, assembly and dismantle of the marquees and furnishings – but our thoughts are with the runners and their hard work to accomplish the half marathon.

Best of luck to everyone, and thank you to The Sussex Beacon for our involvement in this fantastic charity event.
