"This company came to our rescue as we tried to get all our pupils back to school as lockdown eased. Four great tents, saw loads of children enjoying lessons outdoors and the tents looked incredibly good and gave a great boost and atmosphere to the children coming back. The rigging and de-rigging was impressively thorough and the service throughout was amazing - we will be using this company again on an annual basis as the experience was so positive and enjoyable."

Jon Gray - Headmaster at York House School

"We've used Tom and his team for 2 years for our Food Festival and they are a pleasure to work with. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are reliable, professional and consciences. I would not hesitate in recommending them"

Tracy Hunt - Hitchin Bid

"I would 100% recommend Alternative Stretch! They offered an incredibly reasonable price point and the service was second to none. As an event manager myself I am sure that I made a somewhat high maintenance bride but nothing was too much for Tom and his team."

Alana Buckley - Wedding

"Fantastic stretch tent and rustic wooden furniture, exactly what we wanted an informal casual look/feel for our BBQ/Pool party. The lighting inside the tent and around the garden was amazing and we had many compliments. The team were so helpful - from initial first meet, to set up and take down. You would never know a tent had been there. We would highly recommend this company."

Fiona Day - Pool & BBQ party

"Everything was great with Alternative Stretch Tents from the friendly service, to the competitive price, to the helpful and willing staff. Of course the best thing was the impact of the look of the stretch tent at the party - it absolutely created the right atmosphere and "wow" factor!"

Robert Sale - Wedding

"Tom and the guys at the Alternative Stretch Tent Company were fantastic. The tents were beyond our expectations and the service from the team was excellent from the get go. The site visit made a huge difference to us to visualise how the set up would look at our venue and Tom was really helpful with recommending how best to configure the tents. We loved the flexibility you can have with the stretch tents without compromising on the look, we were able to decide on the day of setup, which sides we wanted up or down without any hassle at all. All our guests commented on how great the tents looked and we would definitely pick stretch tents over a traditional marquee for any future events. They ticked all the boxes and more and contributed towards making our wedding the perfect day."

Claire Buxton - Wedding

"I definitely recommend Alternative Stretch Tents. Tom and his team created an amazing space for us with the most beautiful tent. They were very efficient at putting it up and taking it down, and by carefully working it all out, they made a beautiful space which gave a fantastic atmosphere for the party. The tent was so elegant and the lighting was brilliant, and we were incredibly happy that we had it. I can not wait until we have another party to get it again"
