Marquee hire
Brentor Village Hall owns two marquees.

One is a 12m x 6m commercial-quality marquee jointly owned with Lamerton Parish Council.  It can have window panels on two sides and has no flooring (although this can be purchased elsewhere).  Erecting this marquee is a specialist and physical task that must be supervised.  It is available for hire, on the Village Hall site only, for £250 per hiring of up to three days (for Brentor residents providing a team of at least six persons to assist with erection and dismantling) or £500 for non-residents (again providing a team of at least six persons to assist with erection and dismantling).  Since this marquee is joinly owned it is essential to book the marquee well in advance.

A smaller, lightweight marquee, 8m x 4m, is also available for hire and costs £200 for residents and £400 for non-residents (again providing a team of at least six persons to assist with erection and dismantling).

There is a 30-amp power supply in the grounds of the Village Hall to provide outside power to the marquees.

Both marquees can only be dismantled and packed away in dry conditions – hirers must be aware that plans for dismantling will always be subject to the weather conditions.
