  • “We used Maverick Marquees for our Family Raceday in July 2012, we created a children’s activity area and due to the unpredictable Northern Irish weather decided that cover was needed for this as it was outside. Maverick Marquees supplied us with a fantastic canopy style marquee that not only did the job but was aesthetically pleasing and added to the overall experience for the children who thought it was “wicked”! The Maverick Marquees team were efficient with the build and dismantling of the marquee and stayed late to ensure the job was completed correctly and to a high standard. They were professional to deal with and I would use them again for any future events where we have similar requirements.”- Vicki Moody, Hospitality & Events Manager, Down Royal Racecourse.
  • We appointed Maverick Marquees as overall production supplier for the ‘Gig in the Garden’ music event at Minnowburn in Belfast. We wanted the event to have a unique look and feel and Nick’s magnificent canopies did not disappoint. The event was a huge success, and the feedback from the audience was brilliant. People loved the natural look of the canopies and how they blended in with the landscape. Maverick Marquees were extremely professional and delivered everything, which also included staging, sound and toilets in good time; I would have no hesitation in using them again and would recommend them to anyone hosting an outdoor event.- Craig Somerville, National Trust, Belfast Area Warden
  • The first ever Causeway Coast Surf Festival was held on the 30th & 31st March 2013, the Easter weekend, in Portrush. The whole event was hailed a great success and large numbers of surfers, fans and beach lovers attended. Integral to the festival was the event marquee, supplied by Maverick Marquees which housed the music sound systems, photo and art exhibitions. Festival Director Gerard McAuley thanked the team from Maverick saying, “The look and feel of the marquee was fantastic. We definitely want the guys back for next year’s event”.- Gerard McAuley, Festival Director, Portrush Surf Festival
  • Working with Gus and the guys at Maverick Marquees was a very positive experience for everyone at Stendhal Festival of Art(2013). The guys proved to have a can do attitude and showed great tenacity and creativity when approaching situations with our ever evolving site plans. We would highly recommend working with Maverick Marquees whom offer a great alternative to traditional cover in a creative and safe manner. I very much hope to work with Maverick Marquees for many years to come. - Ross Parkhill, Founder, Stendhal Festival of Art
  • How do you make your business stand out? We've just done our first festival in Westport and calling Nick from Maverick Marquees is the best decision we made. Everyone from the organisers to festival goers were commenting on our cool space & great vibe in the Nik Tea Café. No headaches either. Installed & removed, all within timeframe & great value too. Can't recommend Nick and his team highly enough. Thanks a mill, Nicola, Niks Tea- Niks Tea
  • In September 2014 we hired Maverick Marquees for a après wedding celebration at our house. The boys came on the 17th to erect the canopy and attach it to our house. My, now daughter in law, decorated the ‘interior’ as this is what she does for a living. It looked fantastic, especially against our walls which were covered in red Virginia creeper. It looked as though it’d always been there. The 20th was THE day and we had fabulous weather, people were actually looking for the shade at one stage. The canopy made it look and feel like the special occasion it was meant to be. Two days later the boys removed the canopy in a very short period of time and left the area in perfect condition, they also plugged the holes made to hold the canopy to the wall. Extremely professional and extremely nice people to deal with. I would highly recommend them to anyone.- Lynn and Alan Tyndall
  • We came across our wedding venue by researching venues that are not catered towards weddings in particular. By doing so we found Santa’s Cottage in the middle of the Mourne Mountains. It provided a great open space with spectacular views. In choosing this venue, we came to the conclusion that we needed to hire out a marquee to cater for the numbers we required. We began to check out different marquee companies, but the majority seemed to be offering the traditional white marquees. As the venue was cut into the mountain with such amazing views, we thought a solid white structure would be too imposing on the landscape, and we also wanted something a bit different. We then came across Maverick Marquees, which offered an alternative which seemed to fit all of our requirements. Nick from Maverick was helpful in being able to advise what they could do, and all the different options available, and the tents are competitively priced compared to other companies in Northern Ireland. Even though our wedding was at the end of August, one thing you can’t depend on is the Irish weather. The tents allowed the flexibility to change layout at late notice. On the week of the wedding, on the day of construction there was some freak weather conditions for that time of year, but the guys did a great job putting the tent up, especially as there were gale force winds. The finished set up looked better than we expected, and all of our guests commented on how much they loved the look and style of the tents. We really appreciated all the hard work of Nick, Angus and the rest of the team. Their communication was great and they always promptly answered any of our questions and requests. And we would definitely recommend Maverick Marquee as an option for couples looking something a little bit different for their wedding, with a lot of flexibility to give them a greater amount of options within their chosen venue.- Conor and Roisin McKenna
  • Like every event it can be a stressful time getting everything in place so that you guests have a great experience. Building a team that know what they’re doing and love what they do is also a challenge. Angus and his team at Maverick Marquees not only know what they are doing but they never create problem just salutations. It has been a pleasure to work with Maverick Marquees team and I would highly require them to anyone that needs great service on budget and on time. Well done guys your service is fantastic.- Connor Kane, Managing Director, Chapter 3 Events
  • Nick was brilliant, and everything worked so well. They helped us with moving bogged in loos too! Was a brilliant party and the tent looked just awesome. Thank you so much for coming all the way to Roshven.- Lauren Welstead, Bride
  • I use Maverick Marquees primarily for two reasons. Best quality stretch tents on market & efficient, professional installations. Nick and team are always really helpful and flexible with options when designing a footprint for an event, they know tents-what works best and what doesn’t! We used one of their large red stretch tents for Electric Picnic 2015 as it was station colours for Newstalk and afforded us a distinctive presence at the festival. Our festival concept evolved from the red stretch. It became home to Newstalk’s NT Lounge and was a huge hit with both show teams and festival goers. To deliver superior events you need to work with the trusted and professional suppliers, that’s why for all our stretch tent requirements I go straight to Maverick!- Hazel Nestor, Manager - Events Newstalk & Todayfm
  • Maverick Marquees are a real pleasure to work with. They are fast, efficient, helpful and accommodating. We (AVA) used two marquees for our 2016 festival, one for our boiler room stage, the other for our Becks BeKreativ stage. Both looked amazing and provided the coverage & atmosphere we wanted. Highly recommend Maverick!- AVA Festival Belfast
  • Gentlemen from start to finish, excellent service, superb job on one of our corporate accounts, couldn't recommend them enough!- Stephen Pearson Little Piggy .IE, Dublin
  • Angus and his team did a stretch tent for a friends wedding at Hillmount House on the Antrim Coast in August 16. I cannot recommend his professionalism and high standards enough. He made an extra journey to provide lighting at no extra cost and went well beyond our expectations. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him for other peoples events.- Simon Croal Hillmount House ,Larne
  • Maverick provided the marquee for my daughter’s wedding in September 2016 and I couldn’t compliment Angus and his team highly enough for the excellent job that they did. They approached the task with a ‘can do’ attitude and solved every problem that arose with minimum fuss. On the day the marquee looked fantastic and the extra lighting at night made it a most memorable evening. Angus and his guys were a pleasure to deal with at every stage of the process.- Stephen Sproule, Helen’s Bay, Co. Down
  • We can't thank you and the team enough for everything in the run up to the wedding. It all worked out brilliantly in the end and was exactly what we hoped for! We would highly recommend you to future couples looking for the same style of day. Oh and after all our questions - we can confirm the tent is definitely warm and waterproof!!- Emma and Matthew Todd
