I'd love to watch you "with one man" erect it.

Yes I thought I was being too hard on your halfwitted unhelpful post so removed it but seen as though you persist on wasting space on here with even more useless comments (that's not a tent btw I don't care what it says) then here it is back again nice and bold for you

Stop talking rubbish
Thanks SFB thanked for this post

We are defiantly open to options as it stands I believe it costs roughly 500 per event if we use the bbq. Not sure on how much marquee hire is but the advantage is that they do put them up for you which is defiantly a plus in my book. Luckily we have a good six months or so to find a solution. It all comes down to Ben at the end of the day but I hadn't thought of hiring one so well worth a though

You can rent a council garage for about 600pa.

It defiantly needs looking into. Tbh I think that's what will happen. One issue is where in the country because someone will have to go get it

If we end up buying a pop up one then it could be kept at someone's house. I don't mind holding on to other things like tables and stuff just can't transport a marquee on top of a 126

Guess what, even in the UK it can be classed as a tent:

The official definition for a marquee is a large tent. So yes, it can be classed as a tent, but the forum has a large one, hence why it can be called a marquee.

As much as you seem to love tents, this thread isn't a definition dispute, it's about saving the marquee.

Unfortunately, I won't have any space for something like this, but I hope we can find somewhere for it soon!

Agreed, so you agree that by the same token, it can be called a tent.

Bad assumption on your part, never have, never will love tents (or marquees).

Or saving the tent.

Defiantly is an adverb that is linked to the noun defiance which is defined as "bold disobedience." It is one thing to behave badly and hope to get away with it. It is quite another to want to be seen behaving badly that's action done defiantly: it defies, or openly goes against an order or rule.

Re: Save the marquee!!!

Would be a real shame to lose the marquee!! Wish I could offer help but living in a flat and having a tiny garage with a car and stuffed full of car parts I really haven't got the space either... Must be some long term member with a unit or lock-up or something!!

And @SFB cut it out, go and annoy your neighbour or something.

I could store it here for nothing, but driving 1,400 miles to collect it might be a stretch.

My nearest neighbour is 100 metres away and we're good friends.

I choose "or something."

Yes, it can be called a tent, but there's nothing wrong with calling it a marquee either.

I didn't assume you love tents as such, I said "seem to love", which means you indicated it with your keen interest and persistence of the topic on this thread.

We know you want to call it a tent, but especially if you don't even like them, maybe it's time to move on... It would just be nice to keep this topic on the subject and find someone to store it, rather than to argue about marquee vs tent. I'll leave it be at that.

I already agreed on that point.

It was only an observation on my part, nothing more.

That's another assumption.

I did offer.

Re: Save the marquee!!!

Well a big thanks to @SFB for taking the time to find out that there is indeed a different sort of tent than the one man sort. Of course I was talking about the 99.9% of tents located throughout the world where only one man (or woman ) is needed to build one, you know the sort people went camping in when they were kids. I'm pretty sure everyone including SFB knew what I was on about but then again..... So thanks again SFB for identifying the "big top circus tent" as a "tent" even though it's about as tent like as a dust cart is a rubbish truck yet are one and the same thing. Good job

Thanks for your thanks, I defiantly[sic] do know the difference.

It could also be classed as a canopy, which reminds me of an auld Scottish joke:
A rich Scotsman has a canopy over his bed
A poor Scotsman has a can-o-pee under his bed
And a dead Scotsman canna pee at all
