There’s various things to mention so this isn’t technically an advice article, sorry!
1. We’ve got a used 6m x 6m DIY Marquee for sale on eBay at the moment. It’s in reasonable condition and could help someone out.
2. The 9m wide modular marquees, walkway and new sizes of marquee advertised at The Showmans Show aren’t on the website yet, they’ll be put on in January when they’re in stock – with the exception of the 9m marquees that we’re taking pre-orders for to be ready in March.
3. Probably the biggest news/problem is we’ve been told this week that we can no longer get hold of the shade of lining material we use. We’ve sorted out a replacement that is slightly more expensive but long term could actually be better as it’s a shade that’s used more widely in the marquee industry. The two shades are not really compatable in the same marquee so if you’ve already got our linings we’re trying to make sure we don’t let you down – we’re buying as many thousand metres of the material as we can to continue supplying you. But it will run out at some stage, at this time I would estimate in 4-6 months time.
If anyone knows they want linings for next season then you can reserve some in the existing colour without paying a deposit as long as they’re standard stock items, that way you know where you are.
Sorry if this is bad news, we’re doing our best to help in any way we can.
Thanks for reading.
