Based on the Beduin style tents of
North Africa, the stretch tent creates an exciting and unique shelter
experience for weddings and festivals. They are also suitable for a
lounge and chill out space, bar and food service area or a music
space or stage. Stretch tents can provide a covered courtyard between
or alongside our yurts making them an ideal accessory tent.
The material that is stretched over the wooden poles is very strong and 100% waterproof. They can be set up free standing on all terrains including slopes, next to buildings, to cover pathways, or between trees. The canopy nature of a stretch tent allows guests to enter and exit from multiple routes and adds flexibility with table spacing.
We have three stretch tents (Small, Medium and Large) which are light beige in colour and can be pitched a number of different ways. Each set up is unique based on your style and site requirements to create either an open canopy with all sides up or a weather protected area with one to three sides down.
The lighting package for the stretch
tent includes hand punched metal lanterns with amber and blue glass
and LED dimmable Edison bulbs.
Small $125, medium $200, large $325.
The lighting package will need one three prong outlet. Please note we do not provide extension cords for lighting requirements.
Our stretch tents require 10ft from the perimeter of the tent for the guy ropes and fastenings and in most cases pegging 1 meter into the ground. The stretch tents are best set up on grass. If we have to set up on concrete or attach to a wooden building there is an extra charge for fittings and extra labour. ($20 per fitting and up to 10 fittings may be required) Please note we cannot attach to ash-felt or tarmac.
We can attach to trees or wooden buildings as long as the owner is happy with 6" lag bolts put into the walls. These can be connected at the facia board going into the rafters or into the sheathing going into a stud. We cannot attach to concrete sided buildings. When connected to a building it still needs an extra 10ft around the tent on the other three sides.
In wet weather it's advisable to place your chairs 5ft in from the perimeter of the canopy to avoid splashing.
Using multiple yurts and stretch tents together creates a dynamic and exciting atmosphere encouraging movement and mingling. After dinner, one of the yurts or stretch tents can be an intimate space for a bar or lounge area allowing the other yurt to be an amazing venue for dancing!
If you have more than 90 people, renting a stretch tent for your service & bar area will allow you to maximize the yurt for guest seating.
