Summer in sunny South Africa is one of the best times to head outdoors with family and friends, which is why many SA families opt to host their annual Christmas dinners outside. An al fresco feast is a great way to enjoy the lovely weather and creates a laid-back atmosphere that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. However, if you choose to do so, there are a few things you should have in place to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.
The great outdoors often present unique opportunities for all sorts of activities, functions or even meetings. One of the biggest drawcards of an outdoor venue is the energy that it brings to everyone involved. Who doesn’t appreciate the fresh air and beautiful scenery instead of being stuck in a boardroom, stuffy office or crowded restaurant?
If you’re in the process of planning a large-scale event or occasion, you might have started to wonder exactly how to go about determining which size tent you’ll need to host the proceedings. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not something you should decide off the cuff. Professional tent rental agents will tell you that there are a fair amount of calculations that go into their own recommendations in this regard.
At Tentickle, we spend a fair share of our time assisting businesses in the venue and celebration industries to create gorgeous spaces for elegant parties. As such, we’ve been privy to quite a few epic shindigs in our time. It’s hard to pick favourites, but New Year’s Eve has a way of inspiring pretty glamorous events. Here are a few international cities where we wouldn’t mind to pitch a tent or two to watch the NYE partygoers go by:
Event managers and those who work in the event industry will be all too familiar with the challenges involved in providing unique events that create a huge impact, give attendees a truly engaging experience and meet the needs of their clients.
Organising an event doesn’t have to give you sleepless nights. Yes, it can be a daunting prospect but with the right planning, you can throw a top class event that would make even the most seasoned event coordinators look up and take notice.
Nothing says summer like a garden party, but sadly as we know, nothings says ENGLISH summer like the threat of showers. But don’t let that dampen your spirits here are some wonderful ways to celebrate summer in garden party style.
The Audiovisual Arts Festival and Conference is celebration of electronic music and digital visual arts and was this year hosted on the 4th of June 2016 at T13 Belfast. This annual event is fast becoming a major music attraction for the city and played host to a number of emerging and established artists, DJ’s, producers, promoters, agents, record labels, designers, visual artists and of course some very special guests, These included, but were by no means limited to:
Beer Festivals organized by Make it Happen Events in Ireland have been popular with locals and tourists alike for some time, but this year the 2016 Belfast Craft Beer Festival offered something a little different in the form of Tentickle Stretch tents supplied by Tentickle Ireland. Beer Festivals are already a big part of Northern Irish culture, but one of this magnitude called for premium outdoor tent coverage and temporary shelter that needed to protect the punters from the Irish weather and help create an eye-catching cosy environment. This prompted event’s organizer Bruce Mansour to contact Maverick Marquees with a request for something “funky and colourful”, and of course we were only too happy to oblige!
Although this was the first time that a Tentickle Tent was used at this event, Maverick Marquees came to the party in a big way and pitched a massive 700 m sq structure created through the use of 2 separate tents joined together to accommodate nearly 40 separate bars and an impressive DJ space.
