East Anglia's Giant Event Tipi Hire Specialists

Giant event tipi hire business based in East Anglia, providing a unique and stunning alternative to a traditional marquee. We not only provide these beautiful tipis, but we supply everything needed to go inside to make your event spectacular, and can even help find a venue to put them if needed.

Furthermore, we supply fully furnished glamping tents as a quirky accommodation option for event guests, which can be booked directly by your guests at no cost or hassle to you.


Our tipis make an inspired choice for any event. The beautiful structures blend perfectly with their surroundings and evoke excitement and amazement from all guests.

Rustic furniture, woven flooring and fire pits add to the wonder of the tipis creating a natural ambience that's awe-inspiring.

Spacious and flexible, our tipi tents cater for just about any size and type of event. The ability to raise the sides makes it possible to link the tipis to each other, creating a single larger space. All manner of configurations are possible, and there's no limit to the number of tents that can be linked together. Whether you're having an intimate party for 50, a wedding for 100, or a corporate event for 200 or more, there's a configuration of tipis that will work perfectly for you.

One tipi will accommodate 70 people seated at tables plus a dance floor, two tipis linked will accommodate up to 120 and three tipis up to 150. More people can be accommodated if formal dining or dancing is not required. We can design floor plans around your exact specifications and will always work with you to agree the best layout and number of tipis required based on your own event.

With a range of interior details and furnishings, we can help you create the perfect atmosphere. We'll deliver, install and furnish the tipi tents for you, and because we're on call for the duration of your hire, we'll be there to help with any issues, questions or concerns.


Our tipi / teepee furniture is handmade using up-cycled or locally sourced sustainable timber and materials. Designed especially for our tipis and company ethos, you will not find these items for sale or hire anywhere else.

We will work with you to supply everything you could possibly need for your event. We are always open to new requests and ideas, and challenge anyone to find something that we cannot source or build for an event in the Suffolk, Norfolk or Essex areas.

Here is a list of all the most common items we provide: flooring, lighting, tables, chairs, benches, bar, dance floor, stage, fire pits, heating, fuel, generators and electrical set up for events, catering tent (with flooring & lighting), walkway to tipis, tunneling, cloak area, cake table, mirror ball, chill out furniture and toilets.


Our beautiful bell tents can sleep up to six people. Individually they are perfect for childrens' sleepover parties or hen do's, or together they make beautiful glamping villages for weddings and large events.

For weddings and parties, we can set up beautiful bell-tent camping villages as a quirky accommodation option for your guests. We offer various packages; from empty bell tents for your guests to camp down with their own sleeping bags, to luxury furnished tents with bedding, bunting and the works.

A complete village can be supplied as part of your tipi / teepee package in Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex or individual tents can be booked directly by your guests via an online booking system.

24 Hour On-Call for Events.

We hired a giant hat tipi for our wedding service in the Northumberland countryside last weekend. We were blown away by how beautiful the tipi looked and the service provided by the company was absolutely brilliant. I would highly recommend using Event Under Canvas for any event, they were very helpful and everything went very smoothly (even though they had to travel a long way to set up and break down the tipi for us!). A truly beautiful, warm and wonderful time was had by all!


Jenna, Lisa, Dan and the team literally couldn't have been more helpful or nicer - Everyone was so wonderful and we are very grateful for their hard work making our wedding so perfect.
