Kata Tipi Hire


Kata Tipi

If you’re looking for something a bit different for your party, try our tipi hire service…

Also known as a “kata”, the tipi is a modern version of a traditional cone-shaped tent, used by the semi-nomadic Sami tribe from northern Scandinavia. Like the original kata, our party tipi is an incredibly stable structure, has a beautiful simplicity of design, and is a space intended for sociable gatherings.

Here at Abbas Marquees we have a selection of tipi tents for hire which can work as stand-alone spaces or be joined together to create a large venue, perfect for a corporate event or your own mini festival. With the sides of the tipi opened on a warm summer evening, it’s the perfect indoor-outdoor space. We especially like the tipis after dark, as they create such a welcoming glow…! However they are far from being just a fair-weather option; and we find that the Nordic style lends itself particularly well to corporate Christmas parties.

As ever, we will do much more than simply assemble your tipi. We will start off with a site visit where we’ll find out more about what you want and have a look at the space. We also provide a range of items for hire­ (try lanterns, benches and an outdoor fire for a real nomadic tribal feel!), arrange entertainment and catering, and can even manage the event for you.  The Abbas team maintains the tipis in-house, ensuring that they are always in tip-top condition.

To find out more about our tipi hire services, please contact us on 01749 890909 or send us an online enquiry. We carry out free, no obligation site visits across the South West, and are always happy to talk tipi options with our clients. We really want your event to be just as you imagined it!


The simple conical shape of the tipi is a great blank canvas to style. Have a look at our gallery to see what we’ve created with our clients. Some parties have taken an eastern theme, with richly-coloured rugs and cushions set around low tables and Moroccan-style lanterns. Others have worked with the natural feel of the tipis and decorated their parties with lush foliage and flowers. See what you think – and imagine how you’d decorate your tipi…


We’ll work with you to make sure you get the right tipi for your party. We’ll visit you on-site, discuss the options for your event, then together we can plan and create something really special.


Our friendly and professional team will deliver and install the tipi for you, including all the extras such as lighting, sound and accessories.


Tipis offer the most fantastically flexible party space. We have a selection of giant katas and smaller cirrus tipis. The kata can hold up to 70 guests, and we can also join several tipis together for a really big celebration. The more intimate cirrus tipi is a wonderful option for a smaller event – and its compact footprint means that you don’t need a massive garden. Have a look at these floor plans to see which tipi best suits you.

What our clients have to say

Absolutely fantastic from the moment we picked up the phone to arrange our first visit to when they left after taking the marquee down. No faults whatsoever. Difficult ground conditions seemed no bother to the team at Abbas. Outstanding!


Thank you so much, it was a wonderful place to celebrate our wedding – I never knew a marquee could look so perfect! If you’re considering a marquee go for it – the atmosphere inside was incredible.


The marquee looks absolutely fantastic thank you, we love it! It looks even better than I imagined.


James and the team,

I just want to say a huge thank you for everything over the weekend! You did an amazing job for Lauren and Darren and you certainly made my job very easy. There was nothing you couldn’t do and you gave such an amazing add on venue for the clients.

I look forward to working with you in the future!
