In a world of uniformity, in a world of corporate blandness, one company moves against the canvas wall of white.

Roustabout with 20 years of experience in festivals, corporate and community events, brings you curves instead of corners, colour instead of boredom and leopard spots instead of… well leopard spots!

With over 40 tents, big tops, marquees and Saddlespans that are all different, most manufactured at our workshop at Smuggler's Cove on the Welsh coast, we can cover most events in colour and quirkiness.

If you want stripes, we have got stripes (or stars or tree prints or paisley...).
And the joy nowadays is that we can print any design that comes into our minds. All praise to our new Roland Soljet SJ-745EX large format (6 foot bed) printer!

No other tent or marquee company has Roustabout's attitude for colours, curves or fun.

However, colour curves and fun doesn't mean Roustabout doesn't take Health & Safety very seriously. All our big tops, marquees, tents and Saddlespan structures have wind loading test certificates, materials fire test certificates and winch test certificates. Our experienced crew - most of which have been involved in the manufacture of the tents - have telehandler licences and a commitment to getting the job done and a sense of humour.

I always enjoy the opportunity to work with Roustabout for my events. Their marquees are spectacularly different and fun and ALWAYS attract attention from the public who want to know what is in them.
Not only is the product unique, but Roustabout always deliver on time, work hard when they are on site, observe all of the relevant health and safety rules and generally are a very nice friendly bunch. I would recommend them to anyone wanting something different from another dull, white marquee at their event.
