Festival Spotlight: Intent at Arcadia Spectacular
Fire, flying and beats
How pubs and venues using Intent's Stretch Tents transform their outdoor spaces and turn a bigger profit.
If you run a pub or venue then you know how important it is to keep your clientele happy year round. Everyone loves getting to the pub on a cold winter’s evening, but the days of sitting out in the cold under a leaky umbrella and dodgy outdoor heater are long gone.
Making the most of your beer garden, roof terrace or outdoor bar during the winter months can be challenging. With lots of pubs and venues splashing out on making their outdoor space a vibrant and comfortable place to while away the hours during the summer months, winter can turn that once thriving space into a desolate soggy no-go zone, except for the odd smoker lurking out the back.
We currently have over 25 London pubs and venues that use our tents for both one off events or extended periods of time for major sporting events like the Rugby world Cup. Many venues also use our tents for a long term hire over the winter months, turning their cold, wet and unloved beer gardens and terraces into warm, cosy and dry areas, complete with patio heaters, lighting and some personal touches.
Stretch tents are hugely adaptable and most of our clients who run pubs or venues choose to buy a bespoke canopy from us, made to measure and designed for their space. We manufacture our tents in South Africa and fly them to Intent HQ in London and then come and install it whenever suits you. They offer a stylish, practical and flexible alternative to your standard white marquee, and provide much more cover and insulation than large umbrellas.
Our clients have different priorities in terms of what they want out of their tents. The Magic Garden in Battersea have had their custom tent up for three years now, creating a lounge style area out the back of the tent with lots of height. They have filled the space with sofas, rugs and lots of ambient lighting to entice their customers to spend time relaxing in the back of the pub. One of the main benefits that they draw from the tent is the reduction of noise levels that the tent offers. By enclosing the space the level of noise made by their punters is reduced and contained somewhat inside the tent. It helps keep their neighbours happy year round.
