Giant tipi and events business for sale

We are a tipi tent and events company. We have been involved in events for fifteen years and expanded into giant tipi hire in 2013. We are a husband and wife team, one taking care of the event side and the other taking care of the rental side of the business. We are completely unique as no other tipi company offers the event planning service. The tipi hire regularly leads to the wedding or event planning contract, which is a highly lucrative bolt on. Being based in Northumberland the business is in a unique position as it enjoys no completion as far as York, Edinburgh and The Lake District.

The business has a large selection of Tentipi stock ( including six tipis, interiors, bars, furniture, lighting, fire pits, dance floors, chairs, benches, tables, Ifor Williams trailer, Renault Maxi Mover and much more ). A full inventory can be issued on request.

The tipis are constructed from bespoke canvas, specialised 100-year-old aged timber with no unpleasant chemicals, full structural calculations, and a myriad of unique features and manufacturing details. Built in Norway. The business is mainly centred around weddings, events, corporate events and other celebrations. This business has firmly established itself within the events sector with much business sourced from a strong online marketing presence and excellent reputation.
