The Melbourne Cup is a famous horse race which is held annually. It is a 3,200m race held by the Victoria Racing Club. The cup has been running since 1861 and it is renowned for being held on one of the richest turf surfaces.
It attracts attention from horse racing fans and the general public alike. Many people host celebrations, and outdoor marquees are popular at this time of year. If you’re looking for marquee ideas, please continue reading!
If you’re planning on hosting a celebration in honour of the Melbourne Cup, then the good news is there are lots of sources of inspiration for you from past marquees and decor options.
Whether you’re looking for something rustic, luxurious, charming and handmade, or polished, there’s something for everyone.
Hiring a Marquee is perhaps the best way to host a large celebration for the Melbourne Cup.
We have a large selection to choose from, including classic Peaked Marquees which are low-cost, rapid to install, and can be as simple or sophisticated as you like, with lighting, floors and silk roofing on request.
These are great for small or medium-sized events and provide shelter but a nice open feel. Walls are optional.
If you’re looking for something more elegant that can cope with slightly less ideal weather, then Electron Marquees are a good choice.
They provide a bit more shelter than a classic marquee, and offer beautiful ambience, making them great for late-night celebrations.
So, if you’re planning on celebrating your winnings or drowning your sorrows after the event you can do that. For the biggest celebrations, a ClearSpan marquee is a good option.
There are smaller ClearSpan marquees available as well, however, we believe that if you’re hosting a smaller event then a small Electron or Classic offers a nicer ambience.
ClearSpan Marquees are more ‘structure’ than marquee, so they truly add to the exclusive feel.
If you’re looking to provide the real feel of the racecourse, then try to get a large screen projector added to the marquee so that you can show the races live on a big screen.
Be sure to ask about the flooring, staging, and lighting. We can help with all of those things and have plenty of offerings depending on whether you want a ‘romantic’ feel or a brighter daytime event feel.
We can also help with furniture, kitchens, and catering, so if you wanted to have a bar at your Melbourne Cup celebration, then that’s an option too.
You can focus on the decor, bunting and theming, and we’ll handle the setup, seating, tables, fencing and other details that will make the event tick over nicely.
The right marquee can make all the difference to the atmosphere of the event. Too small, and it will feel cramped and un-polished. Too big and the open space will take away from the atmosphere too, making the event feel dead.
We have marquees for all sizes that are suitable for most kinds of terrain. If you’re not sure what type of marquee you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We would be happy to discuss your needs and advise you based on how many people you expect to attend the event and the activities that you have planned.
We have many years of experience in event planning and we can offer suggestions based on whether you’re going to be holding ‘fake races’ for the kids, streaming the race on a big projector, holding a disco, or serving a meal.
