Party in style under canvas, with lots of twinkly fairy lights, dance floor with real flame fire pit to toast your marshmallows. Unlike hotel function rooms where you have to decorate around corporate looking furniture and décor that’s already there, our tipis offer a completely blank canvas to personalise exactly how you want it.
The Big Hat tipi is our largest and most popular tipi due to its size and flexibility. If there was one word to describe a tipi it would be versatile. It can be joined to other tipis in a variety of ways. The ability for it to be linked to additional Big Hat tipis means it is usually the centrepiece of most events.
The sides can be lifted in sections to open up as much or as little as desired, offering a wonderful open aspect to the surroundings. Alternatively, the sides can be closed down, enabling porches and tunnels to be attached, forming impressive entrances or leading to further tipis.
The Big Hat is the largest and most versatile of our tipis. They can be linked together, giving further internal space. Each and any number of the nine sides can be lifted to form an open side in summer. When three Big Hat tipis are used, they can be linked, either forming a slight arc or a triangle.
Each Big Hat has a 10.3 metre diameter and a height of 7.4 metres, giving a spacious internal volume. Individually, they can seat up to 60 guests, depending on configuration, but when two Big Hat tipis are linked together, their combined capacity can seat up to 132 guests*.
* It is important to note that guest capacity is affected by certain options such as weatherproofing kits, entrances, and layout preferences.
Big Hat tipis can be fitted with a ‘Panoramic’ panel. This is an extremely useful addition that is perfect for housing a bar area or band/DJ, including a small stage, as it lifts the main canvas creating an additional floorspace and a vertical rear wall. Panoramic panels can be fitted with one at each end when two or more Big Hats are joined together in a line.
The panoramic panels, which comprise of three sections, are available in clear panel , or if you prefer, you can remove the panel for natural airflow into the tipi.
We have plenty of options including entrances canopies, porches and clear panel weathering kits to enhance and protect your event from the vagaries of the British climate.
In addition, internally, with the impressive crown height of the Big Hat tipis, we are able to suspend a number of lighting options. It can also be decorated to beautiful effect, along with having a glitter ball and spotlights for your dance floor. LED uplighters, with multiple colour combinations, complete the internal decoration.
The Big Hat tipi prices include the dandy dura matting floor, 9 pole fairy lights throughout. We also do not make a charge for the link kits or tunnels when you join two or more of our tipis together.
In other words, we include a lot more than just the basic tipi in our prices.
Inspired from our natives down under. The naked hat tipi is a very popular addition to any tipi set up, with its 9 pole fairy lighting, its magical in the evening for guests to party the night away, or often chosen to a have roaring outdoor fire pit, for guests to gather around for summer evenings. Alternatively you could hire the naked hat tipi for a ceremony style, with straw bale seating for guests to with you have your celebrant wedding.
The Midi tipi is best thought of as a giant hat with all the same features, just smaller. Our midi tipi is the ideal addition for tipi configuration that fall between to big or to small for your requirements, inclusive of our dandy dura matting, 9 pole fairy lighting.
Our Midi tipi is a useful intermediate size which can be integrally linked to a larger Big Hat tipi, used as a stand alone tipi, or linked via a tunnel. In summer, it is possible to roll up two sections creating a wide open front, yet still have a significant sheltered area inside.
The Midi has a 8.4 metre diameter and is in made in the same proportion as the larger Big Hat tipi and smaller Baby tipi. A number of layouts are possible with a maximum of 40 seated guests*. We offer dandy dura matting with our midi tipi which is included in the price.
* It is important to note that guest capacity is affected by certain options such as the location and number of entrances, in addition to layout preferences.
The Midi makes a fantastic centrepiece when linked with other Baby tipis for a memorable party or event, where linked Big Hat tipis may be a little too large. We have used our Midi to great effect for this sort of arrangement, creating individual rooms within the overall layout.
The Midi Tipi is perfect for a smaller party, as an amazing stand alone bar or can be used alongside our Big Hat tipis for when additional space is required.
Unlike our other tipis, the Little Hat tipis are open-sided. They are a superb addition to any outdoor orientated event, and are both visually impressive and provide a useful area to shelter from the heat of the sun or a passing shower. They are deceptively large and have a footprint that is bigger than the Baby Tipi. They do not link to any other tipi, but being open-sided, they are freely accessible from all directions.
The Little Hats are extremely popular for garden parties, and for small events where you would like to make a big impression. We can decorate them with our own handmade traditional bunting, fairy lights up and/or around the principle frame structure or drape festoon lights from their peaks. Whatever your event, our Little Hat tipis will certainly impress.
The Little Hat open-sided tipi is both visually impressive and surprisingly big.
Unlike marquee hire, our tipis are literally built to withstand icy temperatures and the pouring rain, but fingers and toes crossed it will be glorious sunshine on your big day!
Originating from Sweden, and manufactured here in the UK, our giant tipis for hire are tried and tested to withstand unpredictable conditions – a bit of Northern rain is nothing compared to what these tipis can handle. We really can’t stress this enough – outdoor tipi weddings are incredible all year round, no matter what the weather, and most importantly we are proud to be supporting the Made in Britain campaign.
