But up a marquee to the back of your house.

The marquee is butted right up to your house and leaned towards your property where if there are no obstructions, our marquee is touching your house.  If you looked directly up between the “join” (there is no physical join!) of the marquee and your property you may see a small gap, however most house roof’s protrude further out than the house wall, so the roof will catch any rain that may have landed in between the tiny gap between the marquee & house.

If you have a soffit/gutter just above your doors that protrudes out (quite common on new single storey extensions) the marquee will be butted right up to the soffit that sticks out. 

What we do to make this gap as airtight as we possibly can is infill the gaps with a rolled piece of carpet either side of the doors – so in winter it reduces any draughts that come through.

He gave me so much confidence they could provide exactly what I wanted...

Adam was brilliant from the start and he was so easy to collaborate with in terms of helping me complete my requirements for my sons’s 18th party.

We wanted a marquee up against our bi fold doors to ideally keep the teenagers out of the house, but giving them a place to celebrate without us parents too close!  

Adam understood my brief very well and told me this is something they do quite often for winter time events.  He gave me so much confidence they could provide exactly what I wanted.

He was friendly and very responsive. The delivery and installation of marquee and all the accessories went very smoothly and the fitters, Glen and Ben did a great job and showed me how to operate everything.

On Monday morning 2 other fitters came to dismantle the marquee and take it away – great service and professionalism from them too. Chris and Mark!

Same fantastic service! I would definitely use them again and highly recommend this company if you want peace of mind and a great customer experience! Thank you Adam and Team!

Can I have a Marquee right up to the back of my House?

Can You Attach a Marquee to your House?

Walk from your house into your marquee as if it was another room...

A marquee installed over your doors instantly gives you that much needed space for your event. The marquee can be installed over bi fold doors, french doors, sliding doors…any doors!

Give your event the extra capacity it needs and take the pressure off the house.  It’s a great solution for house parties where you’d like access into the house but you’re keen to keep most of the guests in the marquee – to protect your house from any accidental damage.

No physical drilling is required to but up a marquee to your house. It leans against the house ensuring it doesn’t damage your property in any way.

There is no physical join between the marquee and the house – we install the marquee as close as we possibly can (which can be within 20mm as long as there are no physical obstructions from the house)

See more here from my blog post about butting up a marquee to your house.

They can be installed over most doors including french doors, sliding doors and bi fold doors.

How Does Butting up a Marquee to your House work?

The eave height of a marquee will allow you to but up a marquee to your house quite easily.  The roof rafters of a commercial grade marquee are as tall as 2m high which is tall enough to span over even the tallest of bi fold doors.  You can then step from your house seamlessly into the marquee as if it was another room giving you that much needed space for your party.

Party of the Highest Reviewed Marquee Hire Company in the UK


Thanks so much to Dan and the Party in Your Garden Marquee Hire Team for making my landmark birthday party last week such a success. The service was 5 star from start to finish. The installation team were friendly, hardworking full of ideas to make the space perfect for the occasion. The party was a huge success and this was largely because of the Marquee and lighting which was top notch. It's always a bit daunting to organise a big event, but Dan and the team were so helpful it made it seem less stressful. Once again thanks to Party in Your Garden Marquee Hire, I highly recommend this company and I hope to work with you again in the future.

We recently hired Abacus Marquees for my dad's 70th birthday garden party, and they exceeded all our expectations. The marquee, bar, seating/tables and sound system were perfect, providing a blend of elegance and functionality that kept our guests comfortable throughout the event. Their team was professional, punctual, and attentive to every detail, ensuring a seamless setup and takedown. I highly recommend Abacus Marquees for any special occasion!

Very good and quick service, was very pleased with the outcome and the marquee managed to withstand the rain on the day of our event as well! Very friendly team!

The service was amazing and the marquee was set up perfectly. Can not thank the team enough

Alan Godding

Dani was amazing, punctual, worked really hard very helpful & all went towards making an amazing & memorable event. Took the stress out of organising such a large event - would highly recommend

Ann Warren

Excellent! All very well organised from booking through to set up and take down. Professional, friendly staff and great communication. Highly recommended.

David Packer

Fantastic service from start to finish. We hired 6x4m marquee for 20 people. Excellent communication, good value for money with added free extras of heating and lighting. We also hired tables and chairs for our guests. Danni was prompt and arrived on time to erect the marquee efficiently with no fuss. She demonstrated how to use the lighting system which was programmable with different colours, static or flashing lights at varying speeds. Collection and dismantling was just as efficient and Danni had a genuine interest in how our event went. The weather was inclement and without the marquee it would have been very challenging to host our guests. The lawn was undamaged by the marquee. We would thoroughly recommend Abacus Marquees/ Party in your garden and Danni for a fantastic service that will help make your occasion that little bit more special. We would definitely use them again.

Excellent service
