Default Secondhand Marquees

The Crew are thinking of buying a marquee to cut out the greedy landlords, and hire expenses of putting on the rallies. Yeah I know what ya are gonna say 'Wont be cheap and that cuts down the expense???????????', but we are gonna do proper field rallies from next year.
After the lies and greed of the twat at the last pub , we are no longer gonna have anyone else do our bar! We shall sort that ourselves.
So no pub, means no on site marquee.
We have enough cash in the expenses account to buy a marquee if it's cheap enough, and all in one piece.

So does anyone know where we can get a cheap secondhand marquee?
Or can put me in touch with a company that makes or hires them out. Maybe we will be able strike a deal with them as we are a charity.........

Any help guys, will be very much appreciated.

how big do you want,ex military tents are 20ft wide by 10 ft sections.....and a decent size one costs in the region of approx 600-1200 then you need some means of transporting it,,,then storing it;as well as drying space....bigger marquees cost a lot more....but do come up !(i,ll make enquiries).

Just a thought but have you considered getting in touch with an mcc/rally club that have their own marquee for their rally and see if you can have a loan of it. Lets face it in most cases it is only dragged out once or twice a year.

They were using tents from these guys at out local folk festival, for occasional use, they're quite light to move about and as a start, might be worth a look...

825 for 6m x12m is pretty good value for money.
