Kata Tipi Hire



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.

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…

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

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 tipis for hire which can work as stand-alone spaces or be joined together to create a large venue. 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 Christmas parties.

We have a great selection of accessories for hire to really create an atmosphere – try lanterns, benches and an outdoor fire for a real nomadic tribal feel!


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


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.


From small tipis for intimate gatherings to larger tents for big celebrations, we are sure to have the right tipi in our collection for your event. We can even join them together for a spectacular space!


Tipis are a great alternative to the more conventional marquee – and they don’t blow the budget. We can visit you for a free, no-obligation quote – and we know you’ll be pleased with our competitive rates.

A tipi is a quirky take on the classic marquee, lending itself to a variety of different events. Tipi hire can be a great, competitively-priced alternative to the more traditional options.

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. (A cirrus tipi can work very well in a more modest plot.) We also provide a range of items for hire­, 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, 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!

What our clients have to say

Dear James,

Thank you for the team who worked brilliantly yesterday to put up the marquee. They were a great solace to the soul for good hard English work ethic and they managed to fill the space and use the space creatively. You were quite right about it all fitting in…. I learnt its all about angles!

We are really looking forward to our weekend, the party has started already with the South African team here.

best wishes and many congratulation to you and to Sam


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 xx


Hello Nina,

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

The marquee isn’t set up with a dimmer although that was specified below, would it be possible for that to come with the furniture tomorrow? Just think we might want it a bit darker for dancing.

Many thanks,


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!

Kind regards,
