A Stretch Tent is a 3ply highly constructed strong stretchable material that allows an area to be covered practically anywhere with stunning outcomes. Originally designed and made in South Africa, to this day still the only place to buy the best tents on the market. Don’t be fooled by the cheaper Chinese version’s your event is important!

They are completely waterproof and provide great weather protection. Sides can be pulled to the ground or raised to cope with any condition the British weather will throw at us. Stretch tents offer a flexible size and shape therefore can be rigged in 100′s of designs to suit your needs, whether its on uneven ground or over a structure, Alternative Stretch Tents will cover it.

A Please have a look at our pricing & packaging page or send us an enquiry and we will do our best to accurately advise, the more info you give us the better. e.g. timings / attendance / theme / date / band? DJ? Bar? Dancefloor?

Yes we would need power if you are hiring any lighting / extras. Our lighting generally runs from a 13amp socket and we will advise if this is not the case. All cables are included.

Yes with the appropriate permissions we can rig to your building or structure

Take cover! Stretch Tents are completely waterproof - if it does rain (we will be praying it doesn't for you!) we can adapt the tent when installing and bring the sides closer to ground to keep the lovely British weather out.

Yes we can visit the site prior if you need us too. We may need to anyway if the site is particularly tricky, we would like to see what we have let ourselves in for!

Yes we can rig on hard ground using a number of different options using ground anchors and ballast, please enquire for further details.

Yes we travel the length of the country, there will be a delivery charge though which we will try our best to keep to a minimum.

Yes within reason... Our main premium stock is a Tan colour however we also have Deep Blue / Deep Pink / Red. If these do not take your fancy we often re-stock so please get in touch with your favourite colour and we may be able to help!

Yes, please enquire with as much info as possible.

Yes early bird discounts do sometimes apply, also our standard Bronze / Silver / Gold packages contain upto -15% off on extras. Please get in touch for more info.

Yes we can hire for longer than our standard 1 set day 1 event day 1 breakdown day. Small charges apply on extra days or weeks if you never want the celebration to end!

Set time varies a lot on the size of tent you are hiring and the nature of the rig, we can give a good estimate on timings and always try our best to stay within them. We have very high standard of rigging…. I’m afraid 1.5hrs is not long enough.

Access for us would only need to be for a LWB van, don’t worry we will not arrive in a large lorry! the closer we can get the van to the rig site the better…. to save our legs a little.

Its all in the name! Stretch Tents are a stretch fabric therefore I’m afraid have a shorter shelf life than PVC or similar materials. With a higher initial cost they do generally come in more expensive, however look at the results! An event your guests will not forget in a hurry.
