The marquee heater comes with 30 litres diesel which is enough for around 4hrs running. Additional fuel in multiples of 20l is available for £30 (may vary depending on fuel prices).
There is no easy vehicular access to the marquee. There is a wide footpath, but this is not suitable for most vehicles (they get stuck which can be highly embarrassing when all the guests are looking on). Caterers and deliveries may need a suitable trolley for transporting goods. At present access is only available through the front of the marquee, however we are working on creating a rear access as well. if you need any advise on this please contact us.
As the marquee is an outdoor structure, caterers should allow time to wipe down surfaces in the kitchen area before and after use.
The power supply to the marquee is a maximum of 32 amps, there is a maximum rating for any single circuit of 16 amps. We recommend that all cooking equipment is gas powered.
The marquee is very stong and will withstand strong winds and rain. Doors and side pannels must be kept closed at all times. However you should use common sense if wind picks up and especially if there is flying debris. In the event of local lightening storms you must evacuate to the maon hall and await the passing of the storm. The marquee has a metal frame and metal framwork for the floor.
