Market stalls at Welbeck Farm Shop

The team at Mini-Marquee Hire Nottingham travelled to Welbeck to erect an abundance of marquees for a beautiful market. The event was organised and hosted by the Welbeck Farm Shop, that run numerous events each year; with the two main popular ones being at Easter and Christmas.

It’s one of the most popular events in the area and thousands of people attend each year to come view all the great fresh produce. The market stalls included extra special handmade gifts and carefully selected artisan food products. There included artisan cheese, bread, condiments and Welbeck Farm’s well-known ‘RAW milk’ stalls.

First of all, we had to get all sixteen of the marquees into two vans as they wouldn’t have fit in just one. So we put all the small marquees into the small van with a few of the weights and we put the bigger marquees in the big van which took up half of the van already with loads more equipment to still load up. Once the marquees had been secured, next thing to go in was the 25kg base weights; which was tiring work. This is when it became troublesome, with both vans nearly full and we still had all the sides to get in and the rest of the hard standing kits; but luckily enough we got everything in.

In total it must have taken us about 4 hours to drive to the location and to set everything up. When we arrived on site we had to unload both vans near to where they were being set up. Then we got to setting the marquees up. The first bit we did was the main circle of 6m x 6m hexagon marquees in the centre of the courtyard. This is was going to be the centrepiece of the market where all of the main stalls will be placed. Next, we put up the four 3m x 4.5m marquees, 2 linked together near the entrance of the farm shop and 2 linked together on the opposite side of the courtyard next to the gallery entrance. Then lastly we had five of our 3m x 3m marquees a just around the back of the cafe near to the garden centre entrance that would each be used as separate stalls.
