Bell Tent Village Hire
When you are planning a wedding, party, event or festival; one of the things to consider is where are your guests going to go once the party is coming to a close. Are you sending them on their merry way home in a taxi or does your venue, garden or field have the space to accommodate your guests and a Bell Tent Village.
We’ve detailed below our top tips when deciding whether you want a Bell Tent Village at your event
DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE
First thing to consider is whether the area which you are wanting to set up the Bell Tent Village is large enough to accommodate the estimated number of bell tents you envisage your Bell Tent Village may have. We have various bell tent sizes and lots of ways to configure the Bell Tent Village; they can be set up in a straight line, horseshoe, as a street, dotted around or staggered. There is no limit to the design which we can come up with for how the village will look given the space available.
If you have enough space – book your venue and contact us with details of the event, date and venue.
We will need to have direct access to the site and will require enough room for large long wheel based vans and low loaders to enter the site to set up
HOW DO YOU WANT YOUR GUESTS TO BOOK THE BELL TENTS
Next thing to decide upon is who do you want your guests to book and we have two options available for you
- The first option is that you, as the event organiser, block book a certain number of bell tents on your guests behalf.
- The second option available is that we can deal with enquiries, bookings and payments direct from your guests. We set your event a bespoke and passworded booking area on our website dedicated just for your event. You simply pass on the link and the password to anyone invited to your event, they complete the booking form and pay their deposit online.
To secure either option, we require a small deposit to secure your event in our diary
If we are managing your bookings directly, you will also be sent an online booking worksheet which is updated each time we receive a enquiry or booking, you can instantly see via your link
WHEN DO YOU WANT THE BELL TENTS TO BE SET UP
The day before (usually a Wednesday , Thursday or Friday) we arrive at the site and being to set up the Bell Tent Village to ensure they are ready for guest arrival in plenty of time if your venue allows this. We can set up on the morning of the event of course if this is this only option which your venue will allow
OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR BELL TENT VILLAGE
We do not supply electricity so if you want to ensure your guests have electricity, you will have to arrange for power to reach the village, usually via a generator. If you didn’t want to arrange for electric to reach each bell tent, perhaps think about having one extra bell tent which can run mobile phone chargers, hair dryers, straighteners etc
If you have toilets or are hiring showers for your guests, make sure that you can have water running to the area where you are setting up the showers. Try and place the showers and the toilets within a decent walking distance from the Bell Tent Village
If there is a little bit of a walk from the party area to the glamping Bell Tent Village, you might want to consider some lighting along the walk way so guests are directed to the village
