Our Tipis

See how our tipis go up

However you choose to spell it – whether it be “tipi”, “tipee” or “tepee” – you’re not wrong. Ours originate from the Sami people of Scandinavia. We use “Tentipi”; the original and premium manufacturer of large scale event tipis. They have been developing these fantastic tents since 1989 and provide a far superior version than some other suppliers.

With a quality product behind us to provide a top quality service, we’re confident that we are the supplier for you. With well over 500 tipi events behind us – and as one of the original UK suppliers – we really do have the knowledge and know-how.

We have a range of tipis you can use on their own or even joined together, in some cases. The Nimbus works perfectly as a reception drinks area or even as a shelter for a BBQ or hog roast. It could also be used as an eye-catching alternative to your standard gazebo, as a welcome desk or a trade stand to attract potential customers.

Looking for something slightly bigger? Try the Cirrus 40 with a diameter of 8.5m and a height of 5.5m; perfect as a stand-alone structure for a family gathering in your back garden. Its most popular use is a chill-out or bar tent linked to a multiple tipi setup with a crackling fire, some cosy chill-out furniture and our solid oak-top bars inside.

The biggest and most impressive of all our tents is the Stratus 72. With a diameter of 10.3m and standing at over 7m high, it truly is an eye-catching and impressive structure. Perfect for hosting a party of around 60 guests in a single Stratus 72 tipi, or using the unique design of our tipis to join several together to form one large covered area. The same unique design means you can lift the sides, allowing the sun in or taking advantage of a spectacular view. Looking for bigger again? Then why not combine Cirrus and Stratus, or 2 Stratus or 5 Stratus? The possibilities are endless…

Want your tent on show in a tricky location, such as a pavement? Not a problem – we always have a way for our tents to go up. We have developed a concrete triangular weighting system so pins do not need to go into the ground. Each weight is a quarter of a ton and has been specially designed to fit under the eves of the tipis, so as not to intrude on the floor space. We also use custom-made canvas covers to hide the weights when inside the tent, so the interior’s aesthetics don’t lose any magic.

We are also able to install stretch tents and domes onto concrete using either IBC systems or concrete weights. So if your event is on hard-standing ground or in a location where pins can’t be used, contact us and we will help find a solution.
