Events Under The Stars

Celebrate your events under the stars with Events Under Canvas

There are fewer things more special in the summer months than dancing the night away outside; under the stars, or under a magical illuminated canvas…

Events Under Canvas was launched in September 2013 and their mission was simple - to create magnificent outside events under beautiful giant tipis. Originally their beautiful selection of tipis enabled them to cater for events of all sizes from small garden parties, festival spaces and grand weddings, but they have also since expanded their range of structures to include stunning sailcloth tents too. 

Based in Suffolk and serving all of East Anglia and beyond, these al fresco event specialists have mastered the art of festival-style outdoor weddings and parties, and have masses of experience and knowledge. As well as their choice of beautiful structure they also build (or responsibly source) all furniture, lighting and interiors, which transform the tents into bespoke and truly beautiful event spaces that you and your guests will never forget. 

Their tipis are spacious, flexible and definitely have the wow factor! These beautiful structures blend perfectly with their surroundings thanks to their tan canvas and wooden pole structure, and the ability to raise the sides makes it possible to link the tipis to each other, creating a single larger space. So whether you’re having an intimate party for 50, a wedding for 500, there’s a configuration of tipis that will work perfectly for you!

Alternatively their elegant sailcloth tents are similar to sperry tents / tidewater Ttents, and their panoramic sides mean that you can soak up an impressive 360-degree view of your venue or location. You can choose to have the sides all rolled up or the translucent sides can be rolled down to give more shelter, whilst still enjoying an unhampered view. Simple décor is the order of the day with these classic, New England style tents – paired with long wooden tables, they look simply gorgeous, and can seat from 80 to 250 guests.

New for 2018 Events Under Canvas have also introduced a range of sophisticated stretch tents - striking canopies that perfectly compliment a tipi or sailcloth tent as a break away area for a ceremony, bar or dancing area, which can also be used on their own for smaller gatherings and garden parties. How about an outdoor movie night, perhaps?!

Once you’ve chosen your party structure of choice, why not continue the canvas theme and add some gorgeous glamping accommodation for your guests to sleep in?! No need for local hotels or late night taxis - Events Under Canvas can set up a beautiful bell-tent camping village as a quirky and comfortable accommodation for your guests. They offer various packages; from empty bell tents, to luxury furnished tents with bedding, bunting and more.  A complete village can be arranged as part of your tipi package or individual tents can be booked and paid for directly by your guests via an online booking system, removing all hassle and cost from the hosts. Perfect!
