Vicki Moody, Hospitality & Events Manager, Down Royal Racecourse
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.
Craig Somerville, National Trust, Belfast Area Warden
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.
Gerard McAuley, Festival Director, Portrush Surf Festival
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.
Ross Parkhill, Founder, Stendhal Festival of Art
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.
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
Hazel Nestor, Manager – Events Newstalk & Todayfm
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!
AVA Festival Belfast
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!
